Old 2006 Post... Israel, as a solely Jewish Majority Nation is a mathematical impossibility for the future. Israeli demographers figure in less than fifty years the 20% present Israeli/Palestinian citizens will constitute a Majority. Knowing this, I sometimes wonder if todays present leaders are asleep? Trying to turn back the clock 2,000 years is not an easy task when the Middle East has evolved into a total Muslim area. Israel was re-created smack in the middle of Arab Culture! Sooner or later the Jews and the Muslims must live together. An accommodation now might save a Jewish presence in the Holy Land Demographics are a peaceful transfer of power. For example recently Texas became a Majority Hispanic State. All of that Remember the Alamo stuff? They got it back without firing a shot! In fifty years America will be a Hispanic majority Nation. These are facts for America and Israel. This is why birth rates plus legal and illegal immigration into more prosperous areas is as old as mankind! Knowing that Israel is completely surrounded by something like 1.7 Billion Muslims, how can they ever expect to survive that kind of Human Ocean? There never will be enough Jews in the world that could possibly live in that tiny country to compete with these kinds of birth rates. In the end the Arabs will absorb that tiny enclave without firing a shot! Their babies will win the war for them.
