I see no mention of "race", much less a definition that suits your
prejudice.

Nope.  That is nowhere claimed in the text.  There is no doubt that
there is a population of Jews called Ashkenazi, and that they are
genetically related to a considerable extent.  There is no evidence
that they are called Ashkenazi because they descended from anyone by
that name, and there IS evidence that they lived in a region that was
called "Ashkenaz", which they moved to AFTER the Jewish diaspora (or
they would not be related to the Lembu Jews of South Africa).

Jews "insist" no such thing; YOU are the one who LIES about such
things.  Yes, it is known that many Khazars converted to Judaism.  But
the original Jews who converted them were also there.

>You also "think" that jews and Israelites are indistinguishable,

No.  Israelites are GONE, except for the Jews.

>that "men and women are equal",

Yep.

>that all Christians are Nazis

Only your kind are Nazis.

>and anti-Semites (even though jews aren't Semites and Christians are)

You have no idea what a Semite is.  The Semitic peoples, mostly found
in the Middle East and North Africa, have little resemblance to
Northern Europeans.
