"How long do you believe it will be before Arab-Israelis have enough votes to implement shariah (Islamic) law in Israel?" The percentage of Arabs in Israel today (excluding the West Bank stands at over 20% and growing. This is approximately the percentage of Arabs in Israel adter the 1948 War of Independence, in spite of the millions of Jews that have immigrated to Israel. What is responsible for this situation is, of course, the high Muslim Arab birth rate. However, the Muslim Arab birth rate has been in a state of decline for many years now, with the average falling from about 8 to 3.9. This is due to better education, better standard of living and Westernization (against this arose the Islamic Movement, knowing to what it wold lead). So there is hope for the future, provided that the Israeli government puts more effort into raising the level of education and the standard of living of Israeli Arabs, and integrates them into Israeli society.
