    jackson: Yes. Even prior to comprehending the principal idea of interbreeding with local Mizrahi Jewish counterparts over generations.

    Egyptian Jews are literally by definiton Mizrahi Jewish = Sephardi Jews who lived in a Middle Eastern(&North African) Muslim country for several generations.

    That Wikipedia article confirms my arguement.
