"Jewish" is NOT a race!

Okay, I'm a bit irritated. Israel is starting a Baseball League and "Jewish-American professional ball players would be eligible for the team". "Being Jewish is not a race because Jews do not share one common ancestry or biological distinction. People of many different races have become Jewish people over the years." ( While it's easy enough to blame this on a mis-entry in wikipedia, it's also being reported on the radio, including on sites such as 1010-WINS (although it's not on as of this posting).
