I was just wondering if everyone from Israel is a Jew.

    Israel Population is around 8.5 millions persons:

    - 4 millions Jews.

    - 1 million Christians from other countries.

    - 2 millions Arabs Muslims and Christians

    - 1 million and 600k Palestinians Muslims and Christians

    the percentages I read in others answers are not really accurate.

    Most but not all. There are Israeli Arabs, and Arabs can be Muslim or Christian.

    No. Not all

    Only ~80% of Israel's population can be described as Jewish in any way. The term "Jew" can have a few different connotations, notably religious, ethnic and cultural ones, and most Israelis at least fill one of those quantifiers.  

    So while it'll be a safe assumption to assume any given Israeli is Jewish....it's not an absolute guarantee, and one out of every five will be something else. Of that remaining 20%, you have Arabs, Druze, Circassians, and various other peoples living in that area. Mostly Arabs in that group, and for clarity most Jews that could fall under the "Arab Jew" label (Jews who communities thrived in Arab lands) are not included in this group.

    No.

    The number of Israelis who are Jewish by percentage is 79%.

    No. Hardly anyone from Israel is a Jew.

    We all need to become Jews. Inwardly, that's the point. Jews are God's chosen people, do you really think God would care what piece of land you were born on? 😂

    I'm trying to decide if you're a troll or just thick.  Of course not everyone from Israel is a Jew, neither the place nor the person.
