Since 1949, the number of Christians in Israel has risen from 34,000 to more than 180,000; during the same time, the number of Muslims rose from 111,000 to 1.6 million, and the number of Jews rose from 1.17 million to 6.9 million.

Nearly 77% of Israel’s Christians are Palestinian Arabs, and Israel’s Christians are “the component with the highest average level of education, especially among the female part of the population.”
