The demographic features of Israel are monitored by the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics. The State of Israel has a population of approximately 8,462,000 inhabitants as of the end of 2015.[2] 74.9% percent of them are Jewish (about 6,335,000 individuals), 20.7% are Arabs (about 1,757,000 individuals), while the remaining 4.4% (about 370,000 individuals) are defined as "others"

Yes I know this is wiki and that is a cause or alarm and double checking, but how do they compare the Jewish population (which is not a race, but a religion) to the no. of Arabs, which is not a religion,

So my question is What is an Arab??

If it's a man - it's someone who rides a camel to work...

... if it's a woman - it's someone who does belly dances.

There is no such thing as "race". An old idea which has caused nothing but harm to the world.

The Jewish people are a culture who are tied together by many things -- religion being but one.

It means you are the product of a backwards, tribal culture. This is not to suggest that the Arabs are monolithic. Obviously not. Many are modern and forward looking, and they tried to get their countries to reflect their desires in the recent Arab Spring. It failed. Incredibly sad, but are we to learn nothing from this? To achieve modernity you need the leaders and a sufficient number of the "Arab Street" to back them up. Then you need to bring along the military. Where did these various Arab Spring movements fail? That's important to analyze, but the more significant and obvious fact is that they did fail.

They're not ready for prime time. Very sad, very dangerous. They're Theocrats ruling tribes. To expect them to sit down at the negotiating table with a realistic POV is a mistake. They must answer to their religious obligations first and foremost, or they'll be killed.

Actually all Jews are Israelites but all Israelites are not Jews. Ishmael, eldest son of Abraham by his wife's handmaiden, is the father of the Arab nations.

The Torah, whether they like it or practice it or not.

Bingo, that is the one thing they have, and if they are not practicing Judaism, they are not jews.

John Hagee's Christian Church, are they Messianic Jews. Are there any Arabs at his church?

NOT Bingo! The Torah says the EXACT OPPOSITE!
God promises near the end of Deuteronomy, during Moshe's speech known as the Admonition, that any Jew who does NOT observe the Torah will be hounded throughout eternity until they come back.
WHY?
Because God does not want Abraham to complain that God did not keep his promise to preserve his children.
Once again, your supposed OT expertise is exposed as pure BS.

Well, the father of the Israelites which includes the tribes of Judah and Benjamin was Jacob. He won the name "Israel" in a tussling match. Now the 12 sons of Jacob have different Moms but they all have the same Dad, Jacob.

Well now tell me what were they doing in Ukraine , Russia and everywhere but Palestine for the last 3000 years?? When they had a chance to return, they chose not too, loving the city life of Babylon, Alexandria. Lets not play games. Can you list your genealogy back through around say 50 generations??

Well, perhaps "Tribe" would be a better word in this case.

Being A Torah Observant is not dependent on the Land of Israel.
The Jews were in the Desert for 40 years before entering the Land and if you read your Scripture, which you don't, you would know a certain level of Heart Felt Devotion to God is required to be in the Land.
God is not bound by time and thus has infinite patience.

The genealogy can be traced back to Adam and Chava.
Try reading your Prophets, Writings, Mishnah, Talmud and Rabbinical Responsa throughout the last 2,000 and you will find not ONE generation missing.
Too bad for you Jews are maniacs when it comes to writing.
Go ahead, tell me you don't believe Jew based evidence.
