ISRAELI/ISRAELITE



In modern English the term “Israelite” is usually confined to the people of ancient Israel, either of the kingdom of that name or—more broadly—any Jew of the Biblical era. Only modern citizens of the state of Israel are called “Israelis.” Although the term most often refers to Jewish citizens of that state, it can also refer to Arab, Muslim, or Christian citizens of Israel.
