Jewish-Christian Fundamentalists in Israel

An Israeli TV report features the growing communities of Messianic Jews in Israel.
They are self-identified Jews who worship Jesus, and follow the Bible’s
teachings, including the practice of male genital mutilation. They do
not consider themselves Christians because they celebrate Jewish
holidays.

Despite Jesus’ famously pacifist leanings, they are
proud kill Arabs as members of the Israeli military. They are very
patriotic, despite experiencing some discrimination (like one-millionth
of what Palestinians experience).

This news report claims there are 15K such religious hybrids.

I wonder how many are from the Russian immigrants who passed off as Jews officially but were of Christian background.
