European colonists and their offspring.
Then what does that make the other 70% of people in Israel, Mongols or Brazilians. Or don't you like the truth about Israel being 60% Sephardic Jews with very few Ashkenazi Jews left. So this one small fact destroys your every post about the Jews being INVADERS and COLONISTS when in fact they are indigenous to the area. Unlike the arab muslims that are just bums from the surrounding lands.
The State of Israel is a complex and diverse multi-ethnic, multi-racial, and multi-religious society. The simplified thumbnail perspective might be broken down like this:
NOTE: Some Jewish Ethnic Differences may be seen:
Ashkenazim (Jewish ethnic lines from mostly Germany and Eastern Europe)
Sephardim Jews (Jewish ethnic lines from mostly to Spain, Portugal, and Arab countries).
NOTE: In addition there are religious differences among Jews,
Modern Orthodox ("dati-leumi"),
Israel is, very much, a 21st Century country --- having the highest ratio of university degrees to its population in the world. Israel produces huge number of scientific papers ---- more than a 100 papers per 1000 researchers; which shows in the number of Nobel laureates (12: more than all the other Middle Eastern and North African Muslim countries combined) in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology, Medicine, and Literature. (By comparison: Egypt: 4 --- Lebanon: 0 --- Syria: 0 --- Jordan: 0 --- Saudi Arabia: 0 --- Turkey: 1) Israel is at the tip of the spear in terms of high technology developments and medial research advancements; particularly in the areas of microprocessor design and manufacturing; and as diverse as stem cell research --- and --- the treatment of neuro-degenerative diseases. Israel was the first to develop and install a large-scale, fully functional solar electricity generating plant. Of the 16 women in history that have been named Noble Laureates, among them is Ada Yonath, a protein crystallographer (Chemistry), for her studies of the structure and function of the ribosome.
Israel was founded by European colonists and its founding and current leadership is still predominately made up of people of European origin. Much like other European colonial projects e.g. the U.S., Australia, many Latin American countries, Canada the former Rhodesia and the former White-ruled Republic of South Africa. N.B. In Latin America, where the indigenous people were not subject to successful genocide such as Bolivia and Ecuador, for example, the indigenous people have begun to regain rule.

WRONG Israel was founded by the British who decided to gather them all together and out of everyones hair. The Jewish nation of Israel was also founded by the LoN who granted the Jews of the world a homeland in the part of the world they originally came from. The majority of the Jews in 1948 came from the surrounding areas and not from Europe and it was them that declared independence. It was them that fought of the arab muslim invasion in 1948 - 1949 and died for their beliefs. The Jews did not invade or colonise as you claim falsely, they were invited by the lands legal owners to migrate and settle with a view to claiming the land under INTERNATIONAL LAW. Just as the arab muslims were offered their 78% of Palestine to make their homeland in, but being greedy and arrogant wanted everything, so decided to start a war and tell lies about the reality that is Israel.
