A citizen of the state of Israel. Israelis seem themselves as sabras, tough and gruff on the outside but sweet and warm on the inside. Are known to be very stubborn, proud, and determined as well as hard working and industrious.
The Israeli was fierce and unrelenting in his desire to succeed in life.

Israelis are a multi-racial people that are either so by religion, or ethnic background, that live in the modern nation of Israel. Ancient Israel was a nation the Romans destroyed in 70 AD. There never has been a nation called Palestine. There have always been Asiatic Jews living in the Middle East. Not all Israelis are descended from European Jews, although Israel was recreated after the Holocaust of WW2, for Jewish people that lived around the world, in many nations. The turmoil between Arabs and Israelis goes all the way back to Isaac and Ishmael, half brothers that the Arabs and Jews descended from. Sibbling rivalry at it's worst.
Israelis and Arabs are both Semitic.
