    Despite a million immigrants over the past two decades, the percentage of Jews in the Israeli population is declining.

    What is so encouraging about the figures for 2010? I found that within Israel, Jews constitute 75.5 percent of the population, but that the proportion in 1998 was 79.2 percent, and 81.7 percent in 1988. In other words, the percentage of Jews in the Israeli population is constantly declining, in spite of the influx of about 1 million immigrants over the past two decades.

    I'm assuming the reason for this decline is the world's Jews are waking up to the fact that Israel has become something other than the ideal it was intended to be. There is a sect of orthodox Hassidim, the Karta Naturei, who have for some time been vigorously and publicly critical of Israel and it's likely they are developing a greater following among secular Jews.

    Israel was supposed to be a safe haven for Jews but it did not turn out that way. Jews living in Iran or Palestine are safer than Jews living in Israel.

    Many Israelis have dual citizenship. A lot of them are living in the other country never to return. Sooner or later Israel will have to drop them from the rolls.

    Israel just hasn't been doing to good lately.
