On Islamization in Europe

What is the essence of Islamization? Islamization is essentially a political phenomenon.

The Palestinian Apartheid Strategy

Since the collapse of the Oslo process in the year 2000 has the Palestinian Authority (PA) practiced a strategy of biding for time while rejecting all proposals for ending the conflict, which Palestinians describe as “the conspiracy to liquidate the Palestinian issue”. The calculus is that time is on the side of the Palestinians. TheContinue reading “The Palestinian Apartheid Strategy”

Islamization vs. Freedom of Religion

Islamization is the creation of a religiously coercive environment where there is no freedom of religion. This is similar to how religion is informally coerced on all Jews living in Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) cities and neighborhoods in Israel. While religious enclaves must be tolerated under freedom of religion, Islamization certainly is not legitimate when it isContinue reading “Islamization vs. Freedom of Religion”

Absorption of Median Jewry in Israel

How will absorption of Median Jews fare in Israel? Israel is a world-leader in successful absorption of immigrants. Since the top poskim (leading rabbinical authorities) of every generation have always been aware of core Median Jewry and recognized them as fully Jewish is there no issue whatsoever with their religious recognition as Jews. Furthermore, accumulatedContinue reading “Absorption of Median Jewry in Israel”

How Quickly Will Median Jews Emigrate to Israel?

Populating the Negev

Israel will face an influx of tens of millions of Median Jewish immigrants in the coming decade or two. Israel’s population will triple or quadruple and the question is where will the immigrants live? It would of course be possible to triple or quadruple the size of current cities but another option is to buildContinue reading “Populating the Negev”

Demographic Implications of Median Jewish Fertility Rates

Median Jewish mass Aliyah (immigration) to Israel in the tens of millions will enable Israel to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria. The question then is at what volume of Median Jewish Aliyah will Israel realistically be able to apply sovereignty to the entire Judea and Samaria? It needs to be emphasized thatContinue reading “Demographic Implications of Median Jewish Fertility Rates”

The Challenge of Absorbing Tens of Millions of Median Jews

There are tens of millions of Median Jews in the Middle East and beyond with the largest demographic concentration being in Turkey. Nearly all Median Jews live in countries that are significantly less economically developed than Israel and hence moving to Israel – one of the 20 most developed economies – will prove very attractiveContinue reading “The Challenge of Absorbing Tens of Millions of Median Jews”

Jordan and Gaza

The elected Jordanian government officially claims that there is no alternative to establishing a Palestinian state despite this being entirely unfeasible. However, the real decision-making in Jordan lies with the monarchy and there is no doubt that the Jordanian monarchy would be extremely happy to annex Gaza which would give Jordan a coastline along theContinue reading “Jordan and Gaza”

The Haredi Demographic Revolution

Nearly all Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) Jews were annihilated during the Holocaust and have since through high fertility rates and proselytization among non-Haredi Jews grown to 1,8 million people, the majority living in Israel and the second largest community being in the United States. When Israel’s first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion (1886-1973) granted exemption for military serviceContinue reading “The Haredi Demographic Revolution”
