The Arabs are humans. There are non-Arab gentiles in Israel, though.

Overwhelming majority are Jews
Next biggest is Muslims (even in Israel proper, not the territories)
Smallest are Christians.

You cannot emigrate to Israel if you are not a Jew, but the Israelis import Christians from Africa and Eastern Europe to do work. Bringing in Arabs would be easier, but they're kind of surly.

(edited to add: I thought about saying there are about as many Muslims in Israel percentage-wise as there are blacks in the US, 13%, but didn't say because I dont know for sure. Checked the CIA Factbook, I was pretty close!)

Jewish 80.1%, Muslim 14.6% (mostly Sunni Muslim), Christian 2.1%, other 3.2% (1996 est.)

You mean Arabs. They are not all Muslim but they do make up about 18% of Israel's citizenry. IIRC an Arab major in the IDF double crossed them about a year ago.

They can't be human, they taste like chicken.

Thought it was a religion question, not an ethnicity one. I know there are Arab Christians.

How about U.S. citizens that are muslims? Do they count as human, or can we just gas them?

Could have been. My apologies if I got the question wrong. It has been one of those weeks.

That is a false statement. Because of the "Right of return" laws being a Jew makes it a very easy but not the only way.
