King Sargon was part of a Semitic speaking people (Akkadian). Moses has been compared
before, based on the similarity of stories. However just as it has been
that Jesus is a copy of other Gods (I don't subscribe to
this), Moses has been seen to be similar/a copy
of some older
So the Yamna culture is a very strong candidate for the Proto-Indo-Europeans, but the stories of Moses, Sargon, etc do not look particularly
Indo-European in nature.
A strong candidate for Moses in history (ignoring the bible) is Manetho. He is part of the 5th dynasty of Egypt, and probably Hyksos. Some scholars
have suggested that these Hyksos were perhaps Hurrians, who did indeed have an Indo-European component in their culture. HOWEVER, this is based on
looking at a few loan words.
I've seen this Moses was Yamna/Indo-European thesis before, and it was usually from people trying to demonstrate some racial theory.
You mentioned DNA as well ....
