    Unfortunately, there are facts that the doomsayers forget. It's the women that have babies, not the politicitians. The better educated, women and men in Palestinian Arab society, as well as many other parts of the world in Asia and Africa, among other nations, the data on live births show there are statistcally fewer children, Not by any wicked plot of the West, but, the feeling that an income that is spread around in a smaller family is "bligger", even if it isn't all that big. There is more money to send the child to a better school, perhaps to a college, to a better life. As such, the statistics reveal how there are fewer childen among Palestinian Arab families than there were fifty years ago, and the trend is for fewer children. in the future. Heck, in China, the law that forces them to have "only one child" is accepted as the norm--how else can you afford to send the kid to university? Why shouldn't a Palestinian Arab family think any differently.? So . . . sorry guys, the populations bomb is defusing little by litte, but somehow, there are other problems that are a little harder that aren't solved by "attidtude.
