Your slipping into Bob territory there.<quoted text> You really are a southern retard.
The result of a new genetic study published in the British journal Genome Biology and Evolution claims that "European Jews" (Ashkenazim) don’t belong to the 12 (Semitic) tribes of Israel. They’re a mix of genetic ancestries. Far more than previously thought, they appear to originate in tribes from the Caucasus region that sits between Eastern Europe and Asia Minor—the land between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.
Ashkenazi ancestry comes from Slav, Bulgar, Iranian and Turkic tribes which established the Khazar empire in that region – which at its peak stretched from Kiev in the West to the Aral Sea in the Southeast.
Maybe I'm wrong but doesn't this article say that European jews...?
Most non-liberal Jews would not identify with a "European identity" even if they lived in Europe. This is primarily because they see themselves as Jews first.
The liberal Jewish set really doesn't practice any Judaism whatsoever, they just claim ancestry, and thus in my opinion (but not under rabinnical law), they aren't Jewish.
And if you can't get the other philosphical undertones I was making, you once again show yourself as the IQ 80 knee-gro you are.
