I need some feedback on this. Tell me if I am a complete fool or just half of one.
We only hear lately by everyone from Beilin to Amos Oz to even Ehud Olmert last few days....WE ARE FACING THE DEMOGRAPHIC BOMB that will defeat us.
So far we had the RUSSIAN immigration that saved us...but last 2 years on 65,000 Jews immigrated to Israel and our birth rate is 2.9 vs 5.6 (or whatever) and in 2025 they will outvote us if we want to maintain a democracy (which we must!)
There is something very wrong in this doomsayers omen and I can't put my finger on it. I think I have an inkling. Tell me if it has merit.
The error is in the BASIC TENET.
This is NOT THE ISSUE.
ISRAEL IS A REFUGE PLACE.
It is the ONLY HOME ON THE PLANET JEWS CAN RUN TO in case of another holocaust (Shiekh Yassin DID declare this weekend to 'DER SPIEGEL' that JEWS DO NOT DESERVE SUCH A HOME IN THE MIDDLE EAST and they should all return to Europe!).
There are 12.3 MILLION JEWS in the world.
ISRAEL MUST BE ABLE TO ACCOMDATE ALL OF THEM if such a DOOMSDAY HAPPENS IN THE FUTURE.
I doubt the ARABS will multiply to 12 million in such a tiny area (Natural selection--Darwinism, Clitorectomy, Sexual Rage, Blood revenge and simple stench will stop procreation at a ceratin point)
So the ISSUE is NOT whether Palestinians will be a majority in Israel in the coming years...but that ISRAEL MUST HAVE ENOUGH TERRA to ACCOMODATE ALL OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
THEY MAY CHOOSE NOT TO COME... but the ONLY raison Detre of ISrael is to BE A HOME FOR THE JEWISH DIASPORA....
So I think that all the naysayers can take their numbers threat and shove them where the sun does not shine...
ISRAEL IS HERE TO STAY if it is to be such a home.
IF IT IS NOT--IT SHOULD SELF DESTRUCT.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
