Reason:

To prove the contention - pro has to provide evidence that there is no distinct racial grouping for Jews. The only real arguments provided for this, is that a particular ethnic group of Jews in Europe only has 3% genetics related to the Middle East.

On provides a link to a particular type of Iraqi Jew which appear to have the specific link that pro claims doesn’t exist.

The important aspect here is that if pro can use one subset of Jewish individuals to prove there is no race, I see no reason why con can’t do the same - especially when qualifying criteria of the resolution are not made clear for either side.

Given that neither side really makes clear what they define a race as; I have to detemine this on my own: and in my view cons final argument - that inherent genetic markers and ties to a particular region would necessarily be sufficient to determine race. As pro offers no such alternative - I have to side with con - though I would encourage con to raise this earlier in the debate.

As a result - arguments to con:

All other points tied.
