Demographic Optimism; Not Fatalism

Detroit Jewish News, April 16, 2009

On the eve of Israel's 1948 Declaration of Independence, Prof. Roberto Bachi, the founder of Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics, projected that in 2001 there will be 2.3mn Jews in Israel, constituting a 33% minority.  In 2001, there was a solid 60% Jewish majority, of five million.

Israel's 60 Years of Breakthrough Economy - Wall Street Overpowers Gaza Strip

The Jewish World, Albany, NY, May 08, 2008

The 1948-2008 series of Arab-Israeli wars, coupled with Palestinian terrorism, have been bumps on the path of unprecedented Israeli economic growth: From a $1.2 billion GDP in 1948 to a $170 billion GDP in 2007! From a labor and land-intensive import-based economy, which is vulnerable to security and political uncertainty, to an increasingly know-how intensive export-driven economy, which is less vulnerable to wars and terrorism.

 

IT'S AMERICAN INTERESTS, STUPID!

Recent congressional hearings about the destruction, by Israel's air force, of a Syrian-North Korean nuclear facility, has shed light on the mutually-beneficial nature of US-Israel relations. The September 2007 Israeli military operation in Syria has dealt a setback to the Syria-North Korea-Iran-Hizballah axis, while advancing US and Israeli interests. It has bolstered US posture of deterrence, has extended US' strategic arm and has provided the US with vital information to penetrate Russian air defense systems, which are also employed by Iran. It has refuted the claim that US-Israel relations have been shaped by political expediency.

Gaza Disengagement - Undermining U.S. Interests

The New York Sun, August 03, 2005

The impact of Israel's "disengagement" (retreat) from terrorist strongholds in Gaza and Samaria would not be limited to Israel. "Disengagement" would undermine vital American interests in the Middle East and beyond.

Abu Mazen - A New Palestinian Regime?

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2004/nov/29/20041129-095026-7116r/?page=1, November 30, 2004

The US would not negotiate with any member of the Taliban or Ba'th regimes. A prerequisite for the emergence of a moderate Palestinian regime is the elimination of the current rogue Palestinian regime. A precondition for the holding of free Palestinian election, and for the attainment of a durable Israeli-Palestinian accord, is the uprooting of the regime, which has ruthlessly dominated the Palestinian scene since 1964. The old Palestinian regime has been the role model of international terrorism, inter-Arab treachery, serial non-compliance with agreements, hate education, corruption and suppression of Palestinian human rights.
