Serious genetically linked diseases such as Tay-Sachs are found in very high numbers in the Jewish population, especially in those descended from the smaller Eastern European ethnic enclaves. Most of them I have known have significant problems with depression and mania.
Observation: If Jew is a race, they could arguably be viewed as the most gifted. Previous theory: "God's chosen" Present theory: (not discarding the first, just adding a possible one) the result of man made natural selection.
Jews in Roman Empire: 25% of Roman population in Eastern Mediterranean 10% of entire Roman Empire 48 C.E. Roman census: 7 million Jews (mostly in Judea, Egypt, Syria, Asia Minor, Babylon, Iran, Yemen and Ethiopia) for an estimated total of 8 million world wide.
The worldwide Jewish population is 13.3 million Jews. Jewish population growth worldwide is close to zero percent. From 2000 to 2001 it rose 0.3%, compared to worldwide population growth of 1.4%.
The process in nature by which, according to Darwin's theory of evolution, only the organisms best adapted to their environment tend to survive and transmit their genetic characteristics in increasing numbers to succeeding generations while those less adapted tend to be eliminated.

Oh, that's crap.
The arguments you have given are just your conclusions. No science involved in this particular conclusions of yours. The same about people who comment here, they comment your comments!

Look! First of all who are ashkenazi jews?))
In an ethnic sense, an Ashkenazi Jew is one whose ancestry can be traced to the Jews of Central and Eastern Europe. For roughly a thousand years, the Ashkenazim were a reproductively isolated population in Europe, despite living in many countries, with little inflow or outflow from migration, conversion, or intermarriage with other groups, including other Jews. Human geneticists have identified genetic variations that have high frequencies among Ashkenazi Jews, but not in the general European population. This is true for patrilineal markers (Y-chromosome haplotypes) as well as for matrilineal markers (mitochondrial haplotypes).
Ashkenazi Jews, Wikipedia
hard science doesnt have the answer and the genetic results oppose each other... as the history of their appearance on our territory (i mean the slavic coutries) suggests they are of asian origin, we called them khazars and they had their kingdom on the territory and were converted to judaism by their king... Svyatoslav defeated them and they spread around...
the same is about this paper - if you gogle you will find plenty of representatives of hard science who critisize this research...Here's a
