Demographics Do Matter…When It Comes to Israel

The ADL, which goes out of its way to condemn Pat Buchanan when he voices his concern about demographic changes in the United States, has a blind eye to its own criticism when it comes to the demographics of a One State solution for Israel and the Palestinians.

“…if Israel were to hold on to all the territory, the demographic challenge would emerge in full force. Even if one takes seriously those who argue that the number of Palestinians living in the West Bank has been exaggerated (and most Israeli demographers disagree with that assessment), the ratio of Jews to Arabs in one-state would be near the 50 percent mark and would make the concept of a Jewish and democratic state, the hallmark of Israel through its history, a practical impossibility. A truly Jewish state can exist, as it does now, only with an overwhelming Jewish majority.”
