At the time of Abraham there were no Jews. Abraham was the son of Terah, who was a mesopotamian man ("Iraqi"), of the descendence of Noah through his son Shem (hence "s(h)emite"). Judah was not even born at the time. Like I said, only of of the 12 tribes of Israel is an offshoot of Judah - and only these are Jews, and their mother comes from the line of Keturah, whose origin is unknown. And this was recognized by the Israelites - hence the state of Judah was separate. Just a guess, the haredim today are probably more likely along the lines of Judah. And today, as of yesterday, the other Israelis have a hard time getting along with their judean half cousins.
