Both Romanians and Jews experienced for nearly all of their history constant harassment.
In our case: Romans, Goths, Huns, Bulgars, Mongols, Turks, Hungarians and Russians.(at least)
We both sat at the crossroads of great military powers of various cultures and jelly-beans all throughout history feared our master race potential.
In our past you can find the exotic far east-asian blood, plenty of the diverse honorary Slavic genes, a fair share of Hellenic ancestry, feno-ugric driblets, aryan germanic genes, a shit load of noble Roman blood and in recent times, even the Indo-Aryan blood of the legendary Punjab.
But most importantly we have our proto-european descent, that ancient and eternal bloodline from the "Cradle of European civilization" centuries before the Indo-Europeans nomads began their invasion.
I will rephrase, are Jews the Middle-Eastern Romanians?
