    So I dont get your point. Not all Jews today are semitic and even those groups who made up the post Assyrian invasion were an amalgamation of Mesopotamians shipped in by the Assyrians and the remnant of Judah. Khazars and Edomites (forced) conversions. Khazars werent semites etc etc etc. The Jews are not a race and never were otherwise you couldnt have conversion either in the past or in today's demographically hungry times. If you take away the religious cult (Judaism)and the nationalistic cult (Zionism) which in itself was recognised by the Hasidim and their Mitnagim in the 19th C, as a threat to their own survival, then you really aren't left with anything worth speaking of or getting persecuted for. (Shared misery and trauma isnt worth keeping hold of either- let that go too).
