People, Israel needs you!!

"Title: facts about Palestinians
Name: Khalid

According to the latest figures, there are up to 10 million Palestinians in Palestine/Israel and the Diaspora.In Israel/Palestine, the Palestinian population is nearly 5 million and fifty thousand.It is expected that within 20 years, there will be more than 8 million in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.It is highly probable that there are today as many Palestinians in Israel and Palestine as there are Jews.Moreover, there are 30 Palestinians and colleges in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with as many as 50,000 College students.The number of Palestinian school children for the year 2006 has topped the 1.2 million figure.so the "there is no Paletine or Paletinians" canard is nothing short of a morbid denial of reality."

I don't usually make political statements on this blog, or anywhere else for that matter, but I was astounded by these stats in response to a Haaretz Op-Ed on the web. If these statistics are accurate, we are in bigger trouble than I thought. There is power in numbers. As of right now, there are 6,000,000 Jews in Israel. I know, a meaningful number.

But only people who still haven't made Aliyah can increase our numbers significantly. If you all come and bring your families, we'll out-number them.

Seriously, I'm waiting for you.

Ahem...There is also a way those who have already made Aliyah (or were born in Israel, for that matter) can help with the demographic problem; it is actually known as "Aliyat P'nim!" (internal Aliyah!)

Actually, most demographic numbers are wrong. This is the same argument that has been used since 1948 and, so far, Palestinians have NOT neared any-where near the so called demographic reality that these statistics claim. In fact, most statistics show that Israel is growing at a FASTER rate than previously believed. We have the only + birth rate differential of any developed country, and we have a higher per child capita than Arabs living in Israel. Demographics aren't the problem, but if you want to use that to get people to make Aliyah, Kol Ha'Kavod. Whatever works.

TO: OC - That's what I was referring to - the "plus" birthrate - which I think would be even greater, if more Olim would just focus more on the demographic problem and see that one solution is, indeed, Aliyah P'nimit!
