I recently attended a talk by a very prominent South African Jew. He is quite elderly now and seems to have had quite the career. I think he's the world wide international head of Hillel. He went on at length that, in his opinion, Judiasm is not a religion, Jews are not an ethnicity, and that Judiasm and being Jewish is a cultural thing.
I want to say the same thing about being Scottish or English. For example, some of the most proper English gentlemen I've met in my life are of Indian descent, and that concept of the tall, brawny red haired Scot means there's a lot of Viking in his family tree.
