has demonstrted that Jews of all communities except Ethiopian Jews are more closely related to each other than they are to the non-Jews of the host countries. Thus, Moroccan Jews and Polish Jews are more closely related to each other than they are to Polish or Moroxcan non-Jews. (Not only that, but the non-Jews to which the Jews are most closely related are - guess - Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese) The above findingsmight be interpreted to mean that Ethiopian Jews are the descendants of Ethiopian Christians who converted to Judaism, or simply drew closer to Judaism. Butwhat does it matter? If someone is crazy enough to claim to be a Jew and seek to immigrate to Israel, then baruch haba!
