So, Who Are The Jews? High IQ, Honor Students, Yes, BUT..... So, Who Are The Jews? High IQ (119 average in the United States), Honor Students, Bankers, Scientists, Phd's, Yes, BUT..... My father (He was Hitler Youth) told me that when it came time to chose a wife (a breeding partner for those of you who are not religious) the most important consideration was Intelligence. You had to pass Intelligence on to your children, he told me. Good Looks are fine and Athletic Ability is good, but Intelligence is the most important. In the Bible it says that in the "Later Days" (A time of the predicted end of the Earth) the Jews will be gathered from the four corners of the Earth to a "reborn Israel" after thousands of years of wandering the world. The Bible said it would happen and it has. Amazing! Read the Bible, even if you do not believe in religion. In it you will find that the Jews acknowledge that they have interbred with people from all around them, wherever they have gone. Hittites, Edomites, Moabites, Egyptians, Assyrians, Persians,........ EVERYWHERE they have wandered their women have bred with others and the combined DNA strains have made the Jews who they are today, a mixture of people from all over the globe. They are the world's first truly international people. It would appear that they women chose good breeding partners to pass along their Mitochondria DNA (It can only be passed from the mother to her children.) If a Jewish woman has children with a person of a different race, those children will have her Mitochondria DNA which can only be passed from mother to child. The Jews thousands of years ago seemed to know this, because they acknowledged that only children born to a Jewish mother could be Jewish. Most Jews have that Mitochondrial DNA which is traced back to four women from the time of Isaac in the Bible (Approximately 4000 years ago.) When the Jews of northern Africa returned to Israel, DNA studies showed that they were essentially northern Africans. They looked like their neighbors but they had matriarchal mitochondria DNA that proved that they were Jews. When the Jews of southern Africa returned to Israel, they looked just like typical Blacks of the land, but they had matriarchal mitochondria DNA that proved that they were Jews. When the Jews of Europe returned to Israel, they looked just like Europeans (well in most cases, they had different noses), but they had matriarchal mitochondria DNA that proved that they were Jews. When the Jews of Eastern Asia returned to Israel, they looked like the Jews of the eastern Asian countries that they came from, but they had matriarchal mitochondria DNA that proved that they were Jews.
