Median Jewish Aliyah is Necessary to Save Israeli Democracy From Theocracy

We already see that the anti-democratic Orthodox pro-theocratic political parties control more than a quarter of the Knesset. The demographic trends are clear although Western mass Aliyah prompted by a continued high annual economic growth rate in Israel could somewhat delay the Haredi takeover. Median Jewish mass Aliyah is definitely the demographic redemption of Israel. It resolves the Palestinian issue by permitting Israel to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria. It saves Israeli democracy until the Haredi fertility rate presumably has fallen yet further. In the past 20 years has the Haredi fertility rate fallen from 8 children per woman to 6 children per woman and it may still fall to the national religious level of 4 children per woman.
