The Jerusalem District (Hebrew: ? ?‎; Arabic: ? ()‎) is one of six administrative districts of Israel. The district capital is Jerusalem. The Jerusalem District has a land area of 652 km². The population of 1,083,300 is 65.6% Jewish and 32.8% Arab.[1] A fifth (21%) of the Arabs in Israel live in the Jerusalem District, which includes both East and West Jerusalem.[2]Israel's annexation of East Jerusalem has not been recognized by the international community.[3]

The majority of Arabs in the Jerusalem District are Palestinians, eligible for citizenship under Israeli law, but non-citizens by collective choice. The minority are Israeli Arabs living in Abu Ghosh, Beit Safafa and East Jerusalem, where Israeli Arab professionals have settled since the late 1970s, mainly for the provision of legal and other services to the local population.[4] The non-Jewish population is 28.3% Muslims, 1.8% Christians and 1.4% unclassified by religion.[5]

Administrative sub-regions

The Jerusalem Municipality, including East Jerusalem and other annexed parts of the West Bank, constituted with 125 km² about 19% of the Jerusalem District in 2008.[6]
