    "It is up to the Palestinian Arabs. Don't fret about the demographic problem: Israel will never make, nor is it obliged to make, a foreign people who have been a historic enemy - into citizens." (Tim R) Don't be so naively optimistic, such a day-dreamer putting the fate of the Jewish state into the hands of the stateless Palestinians. Not that we haven't been warned. "The Israeli settlements are leading the Israelis to their worst nightmare. If they get rid of the settlements, there is the likelihood that a civil war with Jewish settlers will start. If they don't get rid of the settlements, bi-nationalism becomes a reality and the Jewish character of Israel dissipates." In "Israel Can Look Away No Longer", by Sherri Muzher, Jurist Doctor in International and Comparative Law, July 10, 2004. http://usa.mediamonitors.net/Headlines/Israel-Can-Look- Away-No-Longer There is still today a Jewish majority between the sea and the river. When the day comes in a future not so distant, and Israel has failed to separate in time from the Palestinians, and the two-state solution has collapsed, Israel would find itself in an untenable apartheid-like situation. Given the higher Arab birth rates in the geographic area between the sea and the Jordanian border, we shall then inevitably face a South African-style struggle by an Arab majority for equal voting rights in all the Land. As soon as that happens, the state of Israel is finished. "A phenomenon noticeable throughout history, regardless of place or period, is the pursuit by governments of policies contrary to their own interests.' " Barbara Tuchman, historian, twice winner of the Pulitzer Price for General Non-Fiction, in her "March of Folly - From Troy to Vietnam", 1984.
