He looks Jewish. Probably too ashamed to admit it, though.

IH, hardly surprising, as "Jewish" and "Muslim" aren't in any way races or anything to do with genetics, they are two religions which developed in the same part of the world by people who look the same.

Mark, I think you'll find that there is a largish racial/genetic element in Jewishness, although somewhat diluted by Jews marrying Gentile men and their children being still considered Jews. You can be Jewish and an atheist, but you can't be a Muslim or Christian atheist. You don't stop being a Jew by changing your religion, either, as many Germans found out to their cost last century (Godwin alert!)
