"Arab" is a nationality, even though it includes many different nations, and jews have always kept their own distinct culture even while living in arab countries and speaking arabic. Actually judaism may not be an ethnicity per se but it certainly is a nationality. 93% of modern jews are converts? Not according to modern genetic studies. To claim that jews have no connection to Israel or the middle east is to deny jewish history. In so doing you have become (willingly or not) an anti-semite.
