It's been well established that most Jews trace their lineage back to Palestine. Yes a lot of intermixed with the population that they settled in, that's why you have Russian Jews, Ethiopian Jews, German Jews, etc., but they are still Jewish genetically and culturally. There are Palestinian Jews who never left Palestine after the diaspora from the Romans with the destruction of Herod's Temple in 75 A.D. The talk of Jews not being Jewish is as old as time. You are going to have to get used to it anyway, the Jews are not leaving Palestine.
