Studies show Jews' genetic similarity.
From the New York Times:
"Jewish communities in Europe and the Middle East share many genes inherited from the ancestral Jewish population that lived in the Middle East some 3,000 years ago, even though each community also carries genes from other sources — usually the country in which it lives.
That is the conclusion of two new genetic surveys, the first to use genome-wide scanning devices to compare many Jewish communities around the world… The shared genetic elements suggest that members of any Jewish community are related to one another as closely as are fourth or fifth cousins in a large population, which is about 10 times higher than the relationship between two people chosen at random off the streets of New York City."
These studies refute the arguments of those who insist that today's Israelis are not genetically related to Jews who have lived in the Middle East for four thousand years. Of course, sadly, facts have never stood in the way of those who choose to hate.
