Is the Iraqi Jewish perhaps Kurdish Jewish? Most of the Jews in Iraq are of Kurdish origin. He has very Kurdish features. Also what is the English Jewish listing supposed to refer to?
Indian Jewish also doesn’t really make sense. Most of the Jews in India are Jews that migrated from Iraq. Nothing Indian about them genetically
