This blog has published a number of pieces over the years which included documentation, links, etc. testifying to the total falsehood of the regime’s promotion of phoney, erroneous demographics data. The regimes’ bogus data has been based totally on grossly exaggerated “PA (sic) demographic and birth statistics, which they continuously promote as cover for their more sinister scheme; the separation of Israelis from their Jewish land and from All Jewish roots.
The Israel National News piece below adds to the growing body of evidence that the demographics data and momentum, rather than tilting in favor of the Arabs, is in fact tilting toward an increasing Jewish majority in all categories. MB
Arab Births Down – Jewish Births Up: No Demographic Threat, by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz (Israel National News)
Recent statistics presented by the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics (ICBS) and the World Bank confirm the assessment of the American-Israel Demographic Research Group (AIDRG) that the demographic balance in the Land of Israel is not a threat to the Jewish majority at all; in fact, predictions of Arab population growth in the Palestinian Authority have been grossly overstated, with Jewish birthrates in pre-1967 Israel consistently increasing and Arab birthrates consistently dropping.

In an article by AIDRG lead researcher Yoram Ettinger, in conjunction with Bennett Zimmerman, Michael Wise and Roberta Seid, the team present what they consider to be the “bottom line” of their statistical study:

“The claim that Jews are doomed to become a minority, between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean, is in direct contradiction of demographic reality. Such a claim has yielded demographic fatalism, which has dominated Israel’s academic, media, political and security sectors. It has become a basis for critical national security decisions. However, demographic fatalism is a suicidal prescription – especially in the Middle East – and it has been nurtured by grossly erroneous assumptions. Grossly erroneous assumptions produce grossly erroneous policies.
