Jewish people today cannot be classified as a race and therefore racism does not apply to them. Arabs for that matter are not technically a race either since the majority of Arabs today are arabized Arabs with Yemeni's being the oldest arabs. A sudanese arab is not the same as a lebanese arab, and a morrocan arab is not the same as a Gulf Arab. They share a common language and for the most part a common religion.
and if your going to argue that the Falasha Jews are not jewish because they're not semitic than you need to know that the many people do not consider the Ashkenazi Jews as semitic either. But for the sake of argument are the Mizrahi Jews (which are the ones who reside primarily in the arab nations) the same race as Ashkenazi Jews?
The point I'm trying to make is that Jewish people today are far too diverse a group to be considered one race, and if you acknowledge that there exists a group that are ethnically Jewish and therefore a race. Than racism applies to only this group not to all people who claim to be Jewish today because they are... ethnically diverse.
