New Study Refutes Demographic Doom of Jews in Israel

Despite periodic claims from demographers such as that pronounced in 1987, when Arnon Sofer offered his bombshell forecast: "In the year 2000, Israel will become non-Jewish," a new study, released January 2011 by Yaakov Faitelson of the Institute for Zionist Strategies, disputes these predictions. According to Faitelson, the portion of the population that is Jewish is increasing rather than decreasing as a result of the increasing Jewish birthrate and declining Arab birthrate. The decline in the Arab birthrate in Israel is consistent with the trend throughout the Middle East. According to the study

The Arab percentage of the population of Israel [including Judea, Samaria and Gaza] may reach 41% in 2010 and then gradually decline to 31.2% of the Israeli population by 2050.

According to the study,

In 1995 there were 2.34 Jewish births for every 1 Arab birth. In 2009-2010, there were 3.12 Jewish births per 1 Arab birth.

Its good to know that there is a media outlet to challenge some of the mistakes being published by the main steam media about Israel.
