There are "Arab" Christians. The indigenous Christians of Israel arent really Arabs. They descend from ancient Nabateans (beduin-like Arameans who mass converted to Christianity in the 4th century), and to some degree from ancient Jews who founded the indigenous Christian communities (some even claim ancestry from Jesus's Jewish family members). These Christians (because of their Vatican-Orthodox ties) have been rabidly Antijewish. Miraculously, there seems to be a reevaluation among Israeli Christians. Many now decidedly identify as Israeli citizens, and join the Israeli army in record numbers. I thank God for this recent goodwill from Israeli indigenous Christians.
