Credible research into the demographic situation between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea is starting to gain some attention.
The bottom line is that there is no more of a demographic threat to the Jewish state today than there was 20, 30 or 50 years ago. But that is not stopping Israel’s leaders from using “Palestinian”-supplied population figures to determine Israeli policy.
Stripping away all of of the politics, what is basically happening is this:
- The Arabs say, “Hey, we have a lot of people and we are going to have more than the Jews in about 20 years.”
- Israel accepts this unsubstantiated sack of lies without question.
- Israel reacts by scrambling to surrender as much territory as possible in order to “keep Israel Jewish.”
Does this make sense to anyone?
(Also important to note is that all of these surveys fail to take into account the fact that about 12 million Jews still live outside of Israel. World events could at any time result in millions of them seeking refuge in the Jewish state, just as the fall of the Soviet Union did.)
