When islam conquered most of the Levant, they forcibly Arabized the Aramean and Syrian Christians who were living there. That means they forced both the Arabic language and Arab national identity on them. The main goal was to make them convert to islam, which unfortunately many did.
It is good that Orthodox Christians and Maronite Catholic Christians in Israel are reclaiming their Aramean nationality, and are also taking on the full rights and duties of Israeli citizenship. The Greek Orthodox hierarchy in the Holy Land, many of whom falsely identify as “Palestinian”, will eventually come around to see how good this movement really is.
There are also some 100,000 Russian Orthodox Christians in Israel, most of whom have already taken on the full rights and duties of Israeli citizenship.
Israel is the safest place in the greeter Levant to be a Christian, and to openly practice one’s faith.
