You've claimed for a long time that jews are not a race.

Now you're arguing just as vehemently that they are a race by only ONE
definition of race?

Then you suggest someone else should go "use a dictionary properly"?

YOU provided this dictionary definition.  Nobody challenged it, not even
YOU.  By at least ONE definition that you posted, jews are a RACE.

But you STILL deny jews are a race based on the assertion that jews don't
fit EVERY definition of "race"?

No wonder "liberals" don't have the first clue about the world they live in.

Just to set the record straight, here again is the definition of race that
YOU provided:

You have finally agreed that jews are a race by claiming that they are an
"ethnos" [which is Greek for race].

But jews are also a race because they are "a family belonging to the same
stock", "a tribe belonging to the same stock", "a people belonging to the
same stock", and now "a nation belonging to the same stock", "a class or
kind of people unified by community of interests,  habits,
[AND]characteristics", "an actually or potentially interbreeding group
within a species", AND "a division of mankind possessing traits that are
transmissible by descent and sufficient to characterize it as a distinct
human type".

Every single one of these definitions for race fit the jews to a tee.
