12 Nobel prizes the highest per capita in the world

8.132.000/12 = 677.667 or one Nobel Prize winner pr 677.667 persons.
Iceland has a population of 320.000 and one Nobel prize winner. Not that this matters............

Number of gods: 1

Unlike the trinitarian West, when Israel says it's monotheistic it means it.

Not Only Mosques

Israel also has many churches, including many different denominations, and the Bahai Temple. They should also have been included in the count.

Also, for comparison, how many synagogues are there in, for example, Egypt?

Me Dor ve Dor

Remember the rabbinic tradition that only a fifth of the Jews in Egypt followed Moses to the Promised Land...?
Israel proves Zionism was right. Though it was not allowed to save the Jews of Europe and the US refused to; since Israeli independence we have not lost a community to the violent nationalism of others but saved the communities of the Arab World and the former Soviet Block, starting with the Arab Jews and Bulgarians about 1950, the Czechs at the end of the 50's the Romanians under Ceaucescu, the Ethiopians and the bulk of the Russian Jews when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.
