The concept of race is a 19th century invention by Gobineau and Marr based on the writings of Darwin. Recent DNA analyses have conclusively put to rest the notions that Jews are a separate race as they share DNA with Palestinians, and East European Jews do not with Oriental Jews. Jews historically have separated themselves socially from non-Jews, a fact which raised Tacitus' ire (for not willing to share food ). Jews (not all of them) however have remained racist in the sense that they have separated themselves culturally and socially from non-Jews. Racism is just a word that describes a separatist, segregationist and discriminatory world view that in the case of Israel and israelis is put into action. Zionism without question is a racist movement by these criteria. There is no way around to deny it.
