Doubling Israel’s Jewish Population

What increase in Israel’s Jewish population is required for Israel to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria? From the Israeli government’s perspective what is probably required is the preservation of the demographic balance between the Jewish majority and the Arab minority. This requires doubling the country’s Jewish population. This could have been achieved much later by the Haredi demographic revolution but can in contrast be attained much earlier through Median Jewish mass immigration. There are currently 7 million Jews in Israel and Israeli annexation of Median Jewish regions of Syria and Lebanon would add 4 million Median Jews. There are one million Median Jews in Iraq and 2-3 million Median Jews in Iran and together if they immigrate to Israel would add 3-4 million Median Jews, in total 7-8 million Median Jews and the doubling of the Jewish population would be attained. The number of Median Jews in Turkey is unknown but it is even higher. To add to that are there millions of Median Jews outside of the Middle East.
