That is the only deep concern of Israel: its demographic disadvantage. That's what this is all about, the bottom line. Israel is loosing population in comparison to the Arab sector in Israel itself and in its occupied territories. It is dead set on its policy of expansionism and discrimination against Arabs in building,preventing the connecting oftheir villages in a contiguous formation, against allowing Palestinians to return to their families, even if for a visit. Israel realises that the goal of zionism remains unfulfilled and it is trying to create demogrpahic realities that will give them an advantage. Israel has set out on a policy of curtailing any growth or advancement of the Arab population in Israel and those living under occupation. Statistics, in the long run,are not in favour of Israel.
