Yes, but J1 came into existence roughly 20,000 years ago, and may have
migrated at any time since then. I see no evidence to attribute northern
European Gentile J1 to Arab caliphates.

Repetition of assertions does not constitute evidence. K2, like the other
haplogroups I mentioned, is roughly 20,000 years old, and could have
migrated at any time during that period. Attributing its presence in
northern Europe to globetrotting Greeks is a rather fanciful hypothesis,
unless accompanied by evidence.
