Israel's Phony Population Crisis

Demography is a complicated societal issue. It cannot be resolved or understood by recourse to the simplistic notions, manipulated statistics, and hyped-up scare tactics on display in the Mideast.

Just as there is no true crisis, there is no urgency to abandon Judea and Shomron in order to save the state of Israel. It's a political bluff. In fact, the threat of a second Arab Palestinian state poses a far greater and immediate threat to Israel.

Those who hear a "ticking demographic time bomb" should consult a good psychiatrist.
