Nature: Distinguishing the Jewish ethnic group from other peoples on the basis of biological measures.
Incidence: Since the commencement of the Human Genome Project, there have been an increasing number of investigations into the genetic distinctiveness of Jews, or not.
Claim: Antisemitism is a result of Jewish group strategy characterized by cultural and genetic segregation from gentile societies combined with resource competition and conflicts of interest with segments of gentile societies.
Counter Claim: Jews, Palestinians and Syrians share a genetic link. Israelis and Palestinians share a common origin; but East-European Jews descend from the mediaeval Black Sea Khazars.
Problem Type: F: Fuzzy exceptional problems
