One of the absolute realities proven time and again in the 20th and now the 21st centuries is the economic relationship between wealth and small families. Large families sap the ability to raise the children above their status in life. In the modern world the rich and middle classes ensure the success of their children by ensuring that few in number they have better preparation and position to succeed. The lower classes remain producing many, and less advantaged children. Israel has chosen (though not willing to admit it was a choice) to ensure the systematic impoverishment of it's Arabs, and those ever more disadvantaged Arabs have large families ensuring that their children become poorer. The number of relatively impoverished Haredi who also have large families are not sufficient to adjust the demographic bomb. Israel favors Jews, which favors smaller Jewish families, which has created a situation where Israel is only a generation or two away from becoming an Arab nation.
