Jerusalem Post on Israel’s Christians

From the Jerusalem Post, an interesting article on Israel’s small Christian minority. Christians, the Post says, who comprise about 2% of the population, are both “thriving” and “beleaguered”: their level of unemployment is lower, and their test scores on national matriculation exams higher, than the general population, but they are also subject to acts of “petty discrimination.” The majority of Israel’s Christians are Palestinian Arabs, but there are also Armenians, Copts, Ethiopians, Greeks, and Syriacs. A new and growing “Hebrew Catholic” community exists are well  — Catholics who have grown up in Israel and attend Mass in Hebrew.
