and in the UN ????

By a fluke Israel and Switzerland are the MEDIAN (1/2 way along the order/range) average population of the UN 193 (?) members ! At one end there are India and China with a sixth of the World population each and at the small end there are about two dozen "states" mostly ocean islands or beach enclaves with less than a million people and half of them have under 100 000 people. The MEAN average UN member (the usual meaning of average - add the lot and divide by the number concerned) is in the upper 30millions population. Try similarly with the GDP as on IMF or World Bank figures for an even more interesting turnout - then you understand the jealousies.

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?
