"Israel today is about 70 to 80 % Jewish as it was back in 1948. The demographic myth is just a myth." There's a reason for that. But first, demography is hard. You can reliably predict populations that are already born. After that it's iffy. Demographers are often wrong. Palestinian birthrates have been much higher than Israeli birthrates. Israel temporarily solved that by bringing in a lot of Russians who said they were Jews. That kept Israeli numbers high. But they have low birthrates too. Israel lacks the water to keep increasing the population. There is not enough water for the Jews in Israel, much less nonjewish citizens or Palestinians. You can't keep bringing in more Jews to match the Palestinian growth rate. Unless you take more water from Syria and Jordan, or get cheap desalinization. Give up farming? Turn Israel brown? You can't handle the Arab and Haredi population increase. I don't know what will happen. You don't either. But it's unsustainable. It will change.
