    "The demographic population is wrong. The palestinians will NEVER be a majority!" (A. Zekaria) You are putting me in a most difficult position, having now to decide between taking you at your word, or to believe what two eminent Israelis that I happen to hold in high esteem, have told us: Prof. Yehoshafat Harkabi (1921-1994) and Prof. DellaPergola, (may he live long). "Battle of the numbers: Jewish minority [in all Eretz-Israel] by 2020", Jerusalem Post, Oct 25, 2007. by Professor Sergio Dellapergola, of the Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, the Hebrew U in Jerusalem. Senior Fellow at the Jewish People Policy Planning Institute. http://www.jpppi.org.il/ (News & Events -- From the press) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergio_DellaPergola "We must either have a Palestinian state in our neighborhood, or we will become a Palestinian state." Yehoshafat Harkabi (1921-1994), head of Military Intelligence (1955-1959), then professor and director of the Institute of International Relations and Middle East Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. "Harkabi was the only commander of military intelligence to have had a good command of Arabic, in addition to genuinely professional knowledge of Arab civilization and history, and of Islam." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yehoshafat_Harkabi No offence intended, but given your unknown credentials, I think I will stick with them. Surprised? Don't be. After all, we both know since long that you believe in the Almighty eventually intervening in the state of Israel's affairs, and that I don't.
