The Central Bureau of Statistics, in its traditional Yom Ha’atzmaut statistical report about the citizens of Israel, stated that Israel now has 8,018,000 residents, almost ten times more the 806,000 citizens it had back ion 1948, when it was established.

The Jewish population stands at 6,042,000, or roughly 75.3% of the entire population. Israel’s Arab citizens constitute 20.7% of its total population, or 1,658,000. About 4% are listed as “others.”

Since the last Independence day, Israel’s population has grown by 137,000, including 163,000 newborn babies and 19,500 new immigrants.

41,000 have passed away.

These numbers constitute a 1.8% growth in Israel’s population.

At the conclusion of 2011, 70% of the population were “Tsabarim,” Israeli born, as opposed to only 35% in 1948.

In 1948, only one city had more than 100,000 residents – Tel Aviv-Yaffo. Today, 14 cities have more than 100,000 residents; six of them with more than 200,000: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv-Yaffo, Haifa, Rishon Letzion, Ashdod and Petach Tikvah.

    So after all the scare tactics, the percentage of Arabs remain the same as in previous years. This, while the Jewish birth rate keeps increasing and the Arab birthrate keeps decreasing. Keep in mind that most of the remaining 5% are Russians who will now have the chance of being converted, since the Haredi are out and the religious Zionists are in. Absorbing Judea and Samaria will increase the Arab population to at most one third of the country. With an increasing advantage to the Jewish birthrate and the potential for tremendous immigration from the US, Israel can settle down to a free country with a majority Jewish nation and a loyal Arab minority that will enjoy and contribute to the future of G-D's land.
