Now that's just not true. In some places, Jews assimilated so well you have a hard time telling they're Jews anymore, and the thing has to be settled with genetic testing and the like, such as the Ethiopian Beta Israel, Indian Cochin & Chinese Kaifeng or the completely assimilated-to-the-point-of-absorption Lemba of Southern Africa.
