Jewish is an ambiguous term that sprawls over several meanings. While it could refer to someone of the Jewish religion, it can also refer to a Semite (the ethnic race of the Jewish people), someone of the Jewish culture, or even as a term that refers to Hebrew/Yiddish language.

TL, DR; Words can have more than one meaning. Jew is one of those words.

This is about religions.
Atheism isn't a race, too.
This really is about religions.

Jewish is a race, and Judaism is a religion.

I think the word you're looking for is Hebrew.

No, "Jew" and "Jewish" refer both to an adherent of Judaism AND to someone of Hebrew descent. There are plenty of secular Jews, and there are also religious Jews who are not ethnic Jews.

The dual usage of the terms is confusing, which is why it's helpful that the categories usually overlap.

According to the definition, the word 'Jewish' refers to anyone of Israeli descent OR anybody belonging to Judaism.
Because of how unspecific the term 'Jewish' is, in proper English, the term Jewish is usually used to refer to the race, and Judaist is used to refer to the religion.

tl;dr
Jewish = Race
Judaist = Religion

Jews and Arabs are part of the Semitic people.

As the term "race" itself is just wrong used on humans, as we all belong to the same species and subspecies, this doesn't matter. The people who first started to use the term "race" to group humans had not the slightest biological understanding or they wouldn't have done that. And we are still plagued by it, over 300 years later.

To be honest, they need to differentiate between the race and the religion, because both exist. Why not Israelite? Let's get biblical in this mofo

No, they don't exist both. Biological, there are no different races in the species human.
