The Islamic Republic of Iran has the highest percentage of Muslims in the world, according to a new Pew Research Center study.
But Iran also has the lowest percentage of Jews in the same survey.
“The countries with the highest percentages of Jews are Iran, Turkey and Israel,” said Ali Abunimah, an Iranian-born economist at the Center for American Progress.
“And they are all the same.”
The study is based on data from the 2016 U.N. World Values Survey, which included data on religion and political affiliation.
In the United States, the Jewish community is the largest in the U.S., accounting for 12.3% of the total population.
In Israel, the figure is 10.8%.
The Jewish community also has an unusually high level of political affiliation, with roughly 17% of Jewish adults being members of one of the political parties.
The Muslim population is a bit more diverse, with 11.5% of Muslims identifying as political independents.
But Muslim religious leaders say that’s mostly due to a lack of formal religious identity, rather than to a high number of practicing Muslims.
“If there is one group that can be identified, it’s the Muslim community, and they are overwhelmingly religious,” Abuniman said.
“That’s because that is where the bulk of Muslims live.”
You have to look at the political landscape and say, ‘Is this the group we want to be part of?’
“Abunimiah said the Muslim population should not be confused with other Muslims.
They’re a different breed.
They have different traditions, different religious practices and different social values.”
Abuniman, who has also worked for the State Department and the International Monetary Fund, said that Muslim immigrants have historically had lower levels of educational attainment than their Christian counterparts.
“This has always been true,” he said.
“When you look at that history, it doesn’t mean the Muslim is somehow less intelligent or less developed than the Christian.
The Christian is more educated and has more opportunities and more opportunities to develop their religious beliefs and practices.”
The Jewish population has a much higher level of educational achievement.
According to Pew, Jews have a median of four years of college education.
Muslims, on the other hand, have a higher percentage of college degrees.
Abunimsah pointed out that Jews and Muslims are not always at odds with one another.
“Muslims are very welcoming to Muslims,” he told CNNMoney.
“I think it is more than a cultural divide.
The problem is that there is a cultural division between the Jews and the Muslims that is not going to change.”
