Are religion and nationality interchangeable?

Check out this lead story from The New York Times' web site.

The blurb reads "Clashes broke out between Palestinian youths and Israeli forces on Tuesday as an activist group drew attention to plans for more Jewish housing units."

For discussion: In a story like this, when is it appropriate to use national identity and when is it appropriate to use religious identity?
