What portion of the population in Israel and the Palestinian territories is Jewish Arab?

As concerns "Jewish Arabs":It is important to note, before answering the question, that the people you are referring to are not considered to be "Jewish Arabs" by either Arabs or Jews or themselves. They are typically referred to as "Jews from Arab countries", "Mizrahi Jews", "Mizrahim", or "Sephardi Jews". Many Jews consider the term Jewish Arab offensive because the Jews were in much of the Middle East and North Africa long before the Arabs arrived and did not intermarry with them to a large degree, making them Un-Arabized (as opposed to the remaining indigenous population which did experience this). Therefore, they are not Arabs of Jewish faith, but Jews who happened to grow up in Arab countries.As concerns Israel:Racial Jewish demographics are always hard to do in Israel because there is a huge push in Israel for Jews from all different walks of life to intermarry and create a United Sabra Culture. (Sabra is the term for Israeli Cultural Judaism). Mizrahim first came to Israel in the "Exodus Wave" which occurred from 1950-1952. During that period, between 450,000 and 550,000 Mizrahim left the Arab World and came to Israel, with the largest communities leaving from Iraq and Morocco. Israel had, prior to that point, a population of around 600,000. This made the Mizrahim a very large percentage of Israelis.During the 1960s, the Israeli Religious Population was relatively small and Mizrahim reproduced at a slightly higher rate than Ashkenazim which led to Mizrahim being the largest Jewish community from that period until the 1990s when a mass of Russian Jews shifted the balance back to Ashkenazim being the Jewish majority. However, it is also important to note that the children of the Mizrahim born in Israel in the 1960s and 1970s began to intermarry with the Ashkenazim, leading to many in Israel having mixed heritage. (For example, one-quarter of Israelis claim Moroccan heritage, but only one-fifth claim it from both sides, representing a difference of 250,000 people)The best estimate today of the Mizrahi Jewish population in Israel would be around 2 million individuals.As concerns the Palestinian Territories:There used to be a relatively sizable Mizrahi Jewish population in what would become the Palestinian Territories in the early 1900s (prior to the increase brought on by the Mandatory Period). There were roughly 20,000 Jews in Jerusalem and its environs, as compared with an Arab population of around 300,000 (which is nearly 7%). This grew during the the Mandatory Period to roughly 100,000 Jews, most of whom were not Mizrahi Jews, but the descendants of Europeans.The Jewish-Arab Engagement of 1947-1949 saw the expulsion of all Jews in the Palestinian Territories as they were seen to be on the side of the Jewish State. The period from 1949-1967 (the Jordanian West Bank) was the only time in the last two millenia when no Jews lived in or were permitted to visit the Old City of Jerusalem. Any endemic Palestinian Jewry crossed into Israel after this forcible expulsion. In 1967, a minority of Israeli Mizrahi Jews (of which some were historically Palestinian, but had shed that title) joined in the settlement building in the West Bank and Gaza, primarily in the environs of Jerusalem and in the Old City itself. However, this was a minority of settlers both because a stronger pull to attract settlers existed in the Ashkenazic Communities (Nationalist fervor) and because those communities contained more individuals. With the Israeli unilateral withdrawal from Gaza, there are no more Mizrahi Jews in that area.A decent estimate of the Mizrahim remaining in East Jerusalem and the Israeli Settlements scattered throughout the West Bank would be 60,000 (of a total of between 200,000 and 300,000 settlers).

How many Holocaust survivors moved to Israel after the Holocaust?

My Grandmother and Grandfather moved there after the Holocaust. They were Holocaust survivors.Prior to the Establishment of the State of Israel, the US pressured Britain to allow 100,000 Jews held up in Cyprus to Palestine. The overwhelming majority were Holocaust Survivors. Additionally, according to Israeli Statistics, between 1948-1952, Israel absorbed 373,852 Holocaust Survivors.

What happened to the Jews in 1948 CE?

It depends on the Jews in question. If you are referring to the Jews that were already in post-Mandatory Palestine, they were able to secure a state against the force of seven Arab armies. With strong will and persistence, they were able to compel each of the Arab leaders to sign an armistice with Israel. During the war, Israeli politicians got to putting the Basic Laws and the Right of Return into effect, establishing a state that reflected their values and had a specific role for both secular and religious authority. If you are referring to the Jews of Europe, the overwhelming majority of the survivors of the Holocaust soon discovered that no country, even the ones in which they had formerly lived, wanted to take the Jews in. From 1945-1949, many Jews were stranded in Internment Camps across Europe, some only a few minutes away from the Concentration Camps (like Bergen-Belsen). These Jews petitioned for the right to migrate to Mandatory Palestine. Upon Israel's Declaration of Independence, they began to immigrate and many of them joined with the Jewish Militias in the war against the Arabs. If you are referring to the Jews of the Arab World, the Arab-Israeli War of 1948 was a watershed moment which made life in the Arab World change from mildly intolerant to completely unsafe. Jews were accused by nearly every Arab government of conspiring with Israel (even though the majority of Jews from Arab Countries were Anti-Zionist or Non-Zionist prior to this point). In Iraq, there were show-trials and executions. In Jordan, all Jews were expelled from the country. From 1950-1952, Israel was required to absorb 500,000 Jews from Arab Countries (of the total 800-850,000 who fled). The Arab-Israeli War of 1948-9 completely uprooted their lives, although given the rough decade that the 1940s had been in the Arab World for Jews, it was not entirely unexpected. If you are referring to the Jews of America, the realization that the American Jewish community was the dominant Diaspora Jewish Community in the wake of the Holocaust finally came to a head in this conflict. American Jews began to embrace and support the State of Israel, but also see themselves as the preservers of Jewish interests and Jewish sects which were exterminated to near or complete extinction in Europe. This was a fundamental shift for American Jewry as the community prior to the Holocaust had been seen as "the Jewish Frontier". The real Jews and traditional Jews were considered to be those of Europe, prior to their annihilation. Being the new center of the Diaspora changed American Jewish discourse and the way that American Jews embraced their religion, leading to an uptick in religiosity among American Jewry.

Where are the Jews from that live in Israel today?

Answer 1The majority of the Jewish population in Israel today were born in Israel. The minority who are not native born immigrated from every nation on earth.Answer 2The Land of Israel was carved out of then Palestine which has now become an occupied territory. Over time forced settlements were established to allow for the mass exodus of Jewish migration into the region under the eyes of the international community. Some would say that these were illegal settlements and a process of ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in the region. Israel now includes many other religions as a result of migratory workforce from the borders. Jews came from all areas of the world and out of exile to live in Israel.Answer 3The Jews of Israel have many different nationalities, but the vast majority of Israelis are Israeli-born, not foreign-born. As a result, most of the nationalities refer to where people's grandparents or great-grandparents came from.Israelis are from a variety of different places around the world, similar to Americans. There is also a lot intermarriage between Jews from different areas, which makes the demographics difficult to hash out. However, the most common nationalities of Jews Israel are listed below:1) Russian: After the Russian mass immigration to Israel in the early 1990s, Russians make up the largest Jewish nationality (at approximately 1.4 million Israelis).2) Moroccan: Due to the large Moroccan Jewish immigration in the early 1950s and continuing trickle into the 1970s, the Moroccan Jewish community in Israel is still very large (at approximately 1.2 million Israelis).3) Iraq: There was a quick burst of Iraqi Jewish immigration to Israel from 1950-1952 where nearly 150,000 Iraqi Jews came to Israel. (They and their descendants now constitute about 300,000 Israelis.)4) Polish: The primary thrust of Polish immigration to Israel was both prior to the independence of the State of Israel and immediately after independence. The first Polish immigrants were a minority among the Halutzim or Jewish Pioneers. The later Polish immigrants were survivors of the Holocaust. (Their descendants now constitute about 300,000 Israelis.)The remainder of Israelis hail mostly from Europe, North America, the Arab World, and small minorities from Africa, South America, and East Asia.

Did Baghdad have a Jewish community?

Yes; and it's mentioned in the Talmud (Ketubot 10b). In 1940, the Jewish population of Baghdad was 150,000 people, roughly one-third of the entire city. Between the pogroms (the Farhud of 1941 being the most explosively violent), the humiliations (when the Iraqi government claimed that Jews were committing fraud against Muslims to ruin Jewish businesses), and the executions (49 Jews were executed for "having connections to the Zionist conspiracy"), Jews thought it best to leave Iraq as a soon as possible. Between 1950-1952, over 80% of Iraq's Jews (a total community of 170,000-180,000 fled to Israel, France, UK, Iran (which was an ally of Israel and the USA at the time), and the United States.
