Jews are followers of Judaism only

The last time I raised this issue some insisted to me that Jews were an ethnic group. Despite numerous obvious examples of why they were not they got all huffy about it and continued to insist.

Today I find confirmation of my position from an unexpected source, the Supreme Court of Israel.

Removing hypocrisy

By Edna Ullmann-Margalit

The High Court justices made some emphatic statements last Thursday when
they issued a precedent-setting ruling banning the segregation of Ashkenazi
and Sephardi girls at the Beit Ya'akov Girls' School in Emmanuel. The right
to a separate education based on ethnic affiliation is not an absolute right
when it clashes with the right to equality, the judges ruled.

The url works if you want to confirm the rest of the article says nothing different.

Seems like there is a "near absolute" right in Israel (one presumes it is in law) to a separate education based upon ethnic affiliation and the courts do recognize it.

Note in this case both ethnic groups are considered to both jewish and Israeli.

Jews stole the land. The owners want it back. That is all anyone needs to know about Israel. That is all there is to know about Israel.
