A Telling Poster

Now then, what does the title imply?

For the "Biology of Genomes" scientific meeting (mainstream science, not the "movement"), we see the following poster:

Carmi, S.

The time and place of European gene flow into Ashkenazi Jews


"European gene flow."  One may see a similar poster about, say, Roma, but not about [fill in the name of any indigenous European ethny].  Thus, the obvious implied and accepted consensus is that (Ashkenazi) Jews are not indigenous Europeans, and, regardless of whether you want to classify them as "White," their ethnogenesis was that of an intrusive Diaspora people who migrated into Europe in historic times and then accumulated a degree of European genetics (likely a large amount at the beginning, followed by very little once ethnogenesis had taken place).
