Yes.

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.
=================================

By every single definition of race that YOU provided, jews are a RACE.
