If we add the 2. The Jewish population is roughly 5. These overall statistics also distort the debate over the disengagement from Gaza where the demographic picture is crystal clear.

Human genetic clustering is the degree to which human genetic variation can be partitioned into a small number of groups or clusters. A leading method of analysis uses mathematical cluster analysis of the degree of similarity of genetic data between individuals and groups in order to infer population structures and assign individuals to hypothesized ancestral groups.
