Livni’s Source of Desperation: Jewish Births Way Up, Arabs Way Down

A new report shows that the demographic predictions Minister Tzipi Livni has been basing her decisions on is incorrect.

Tzipi Livni's constituency is more likely to raise puppies than babies, making the demographic threat not so much the Arabs, but rather the fact that her kind is becoming vastly outnumbered by right wing Jews.

The number of Arab emigrants from Gaza has declined in recent years due to Egypt’s blocking of its border with Gaza.

Most of the Arabs leaving Judea and Samaria are looking for work in other countries.

5. The Palestinian Authority keeps changing its demographic forecasts, coming up with more and more exaggerated figures (4 so far), knowing full well that if it gave an honest accounting of its 1.5 million—and shrinking—population in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, it would no longer be able to scare the Jews and the world into new concessions.

Finally, there are some psychological facts that cannot be measured but can certainly be assessed from these figures. A high birthrate means optimism, says Dr. Bechor. We have in Israel today an optimistic public, involved in the ongoing effort to increase families and the nation. A high birthrate also means an expectation of prosperity. It also means that aliyah, although still in modest numbers – around 20 thousand a year – is nevertheless constant and offers yet another optimistic note.

The only segment of Israeli society that is not experiencing this optimistic growth is the left, which has, basically, given up the hope of leading Israeli politics in the foreseeable future. The only hope they have of getting back in the saddle has been laid out by Minister Tzipi Livni in a Kol Israe interview this week: Naftali Bennett and Jewish Home, which are the enemies of a land-for-peace solution, should leave government, and Labor should take their place. That’s the scenario.

They don’t have the numbers, of course, they were relegated by a solid, right wing public to the basement of decision making history – but they still have Benjamin Netanyahu.

For now.

    Blessed Adonai Yisrael forever

  2. Leona Bazylak Quigley says:

    Hallelujah!

  3. Dan Silagi says:

    One day Tzipi Livni will be the real prime minister of Israel, with a mandate from secular Israelis to stop the freeloading Haredim, who have 8 kids which they can't afford then stick the seculars with the bill to raise them. And Yori Yanover, along with all the religious zealots and extremists who are turning Israel into a third-rate, third-world theocracy, will be crying in their cholent.

  4. Maurice Libner says:

    she'd better get elected soon, while there are still a few secular Jews and Arabs left.

  5. The report is an update of this 2009 report ( http://www.meforum.org/2124/the-politics-of-palestinian-demography ) and the researcher's name is Yakov Faitelson.

  6. Michael Dar says:

    Keep dreaming Dan Silagi, even scores of Israeli seculars don't buy into your populistic leftist extremism…. she is irrelevant with her 2 or 3 mandates. She is a complete failure! Natanyahu put her on temporary political life support giving her her latest "mission"..which will not only fail but must fail…

  7. Gil Gilman says:

    Dan, you are so silly…or did you not mean to be?

  8. Gd how Livni hates Israel and the jews…

  9. Throw the Arabs out and there will be peace inside Israel. The Arabs have 22 Muslim states to choose from (more if you count Europe). I'm sorry, what am I saying, it's only OK to throw Jews out of their homes. My bad.

  10. G-d help Israel if Livni ever becomes prime minister. She never will be. It's bad enough with Netanyahu. With Livni it would be total diseastor.

  11. Jacob Alperin-Sheriff says:

    There are not 8.15 million people in Israel by any definition of "Israel" unless you're so racist that you don't consider Palestinians in the West Bank to be people (but are counting West Bank settlers).

  12. Jacob Alperin-Sheriff says:

    I don't have time to fact-check the rest of this before Shabbos (one hour to candle-lighting in Atlanta) … but the numbers TODAY are what's relevant for "demographic issue" (although that's a fake issue because there's not a significant difference between, say 65% of the population (Is denying civil rights to, say, 20% of the population [Palestinians in the West Bank; Jerusalem ones have a citizenship route] (with the remaining 15%? being Israeli Arabs who have civil rights) and 49% of the population denying civil rights to say 30% of the population.

  13. Kol HaKavod, Kein Yirbu and Baruch HaShem – it is a mitzve in Brei**** to have children, may the birth rate among the religious Jews continue.
