Wikipedia says 10%, if that is close enough for you, Angie. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashkenazi Otherwise, I will have to get back to you and see if I can find it in my browsing history. [Darn, I wish I kept these things on hand] To be fair, here is an article that challenges even that number http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2010/06/03/the-dna-of-... However, in order to claim land, you need a "contract;" and even Zionist apologists such as
Dennis Prager admit the overwhelming majority of Jews "don't have one," being atheists. The State of Israel not only discriminates against ultra-orthodox Jews, it openly invites homosexual tourists to partake its pleasures, hardly a sign of affiliation of a religion highly critical of homosexuality.

Oh, and I almost forgot, this from Orthodox Jews United Against Zionism.
"Neturei Karta oppose the so-called "State of Israel" not because it operates secularly, but because the entire concept of a sovereign Jewish state is contrary to Jewish Law.
All the great rabbis who in accordance with Jewish Law opposed Zionism at its inception did not do so merely due to consideration of the secular lifestyles of the then Zionist leaders or even for their opposition to Torah heritage and rejection of its values and practices, but due to the fact that the entire concept of a Jewish state is in direct conflict with a number of Judaism's fundamentals.
Condemnation of and segregation from anything connected to or affiliated with the so-called modern day "State of Israel" is based on the Talmud, the key fundamental doctrine of the Oral Tradition handed down by G-d to Moses on Mt. Sinai. The Talmud in Tractate Kesubos (p. 111a), teaches that Jews shall not use human force to bring about the establishment of a Jewish state before the coming of the universally accepted Moshiach (Messiah from the House of David). Furthermore it states that we are forbidden to rebel against the nations and that we should remain loyal citizens and we shall not attempt to leave the exile which G-d sent us into, ahead of time.
Jews are not allowed to dominate, kill, harm or demean another people and are not allowed to have anything to do with the Zionist enterprise, their political meddling and their wars."
