Who Lives in Israel?

Nadene Goldfoot
Right now, Israel's population is made up of 5, 978,600 Jews.  Probably they will have 6 million by the end of 2012.  They just need 21,400 more to make it.  Between immigration and births, it could happen.  Being it is September 19th, we have 103 days to go to reach the end of December.

Israel also has 1,636,600 Arab citizens and 318,000 Christians and others as citizens as well.
The total is 7,933,200 population in this very tiny state.

When Israel was again recognized as a state on May 15, 1948, the population was 806,000.  82% were Jewish and the rest were Arabs.  That means that there were 660,920 Jews then.  As the Torah tells us, 600,000 slaves left Egypt with Moses in the Exodus to return to Canaan.  Now we're looking at the 6 million mark by the end of 2012.  We lost 6 million Jews in the Holocaust, so our population is just now recuperating our lost numbers.  We will never get back the 6 million people who were slaughtered who could have contributed much to the world.
