Straight From The Jerusalem Cloakroom #200,
Yoram Ettinger, December 28, 2006
1. Critical policy decisions (“Road Map”, “Two State Solution”, “Disengagement”, “Convergence”) are based on grossly erroneous demographic assumptions, which have led to demographic fatalism and demographobia (illogical fear of Palestinian demography).
2. No demographic machete hovers over Israel’s throat. Israel’s demographic problem is not lethal. It has been mitigated over the last 100 years: 8% Jewish minority between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean in 1900 (birth of modern Zionism); 33% Jewish minority in 1947; A 60% Jewish majority west of the Jordan River including Gaza, and a 67% Jewish majority excluding Gaza in 2006.
