False. The Bible gives specific examples to the contrary.

Totally ignoring other passages that contradict that one, like the one
a few verses later where it says 3 generations for Moabites and
Furthermore, since adoption would make someone a member of a tribe,
marrying someone adopted into a tribe, the children would not be
mongrels. Since Jewish conversion is a formal adoption into the
tribes, and not merely a profession of belief, the passage would not
apply to those of other nations who went through the proper rituals.
Finally, what makes YOU an expert on the interpretation of Old
Testament Law? Are you a rabbi? Do you practice the other laws of
Deuteronomy? If you don't, then you are no longer an Israelite, no
matter what your purported ancestry.
Actually, it is a near certainty that the Europeans are not Israelites
under the covenant of Abraham for another reason:

Since circumcision was not practiced by Europeans who were not Jews of
Moslems, even if they were genetic descendants of Abraham, they were
explicit violators of this covenant and thereby cut off from "his
people" i.e. the covenant chosen of Abraham.
And as for your 6 billion Israelites, have you forgotten Deut 4:

THAT was the fate of the Israelites of the other 10 tribes. They were
removed from the land, scattered among the nations, and left FEW IN
NUMBER. Thus said Moses in the Bible. Thus said the LORD
