>>319403>they literally aren't
well, in the sense of their recent history no, the Ashkenazi Jews of Europe are not a population primarily based in south Europe (which you complain is an "edge/fucking EDGE" case >>319381
). In fact, they are based from central and eastern Europe. Since you consider southern Europeans (Sicilians, Maltese, South Italians) as "edge"-case Europeans, I'm guessing your metric for "European-ness" is either: "the more north of Europe, the more European" or "the more center of Europe, the more European", since according to you south Europeans are "edge" case (i.e. barely) Europeans. Well, in that case, according to your own geographic standards then, Ashkenazi Jews of Europe are arguably even "more European" than southern Europeans (Sicilians, Maltese, south Italians) because they have a historic population base that is centered more to the center of Europe (therefore "peak European" if central Europe is your standard for "peak European-ness" and "closer to peak European" than the Sicilians/Maltese/south Italians if northern Europe is your standard for "peak European")

So when you post this graph here >>319356
of genomes/genetic relatedness of different ethnic groups, that's supposed to be your >"scientific proof" "haha btfo by race 'realist' science, you dumb commie :^)"
that the European Ashkenazi Jews are a separate Semitic "race" from European non-Jews, even though the exact chart you posted in fact shows that the ethnic groups genetically most closely related to Ashkenazi Jews are, wait for it, the southern European
ethnic groups of Sicilians, Maltese and south Italians, and not
Semitic (Arab) Jews.
