The unfortunate thing for some of the commenters on this list is the concept of race, Semitic, Nordic, Indian or otherwise, that has been around since the 1800s has come to an abrupt end with the advent of Y-chromosome dna genetics and haplogroup tracing.
You'll be sad to know, I imagine, that there are "Semitic" genes in the Nordics, in the Celts, on the British Isles over 2000 years old.
And, yes, the Ashkenaz, generally speaking, are closest to the Sephardim, than to Asians (Khazars were Asian) or anyone else. Of course, you can not extrapolate from the whole to the individual, but generally speaking. And yes, those genes are Abramic.
I'm really sorry to relay that current scientific method, public knowledge, though perhaps not yet common knowledge, has buried the traditional concept of "race" once and for all.
Now, it's all about haplogroups. Haplogroups have completely replaced the concept of "race". And, fortunately or unfortunately, for many commenters here, they will find themselves likely closer to the "race" (i.e. haplogroups) of Jews than probably anyone else, were they to get their Y-chromosome genetically tested.
Anyone can do it for very inexpensively at familytreedna.com
So, there you have it! All the time spent b*tching about Jews, down the drain.
