Question on facts
Reader comment on: Israel's Demographic Miracle

I have read this story before and frankly I think it needs more study. If the items cited in the article are factual it would drastically change the status quo in the region. Unfortunately, there seem to be the same couple of studies that support this viewpoint and a myriad of others that suggest the opposite. Natanyahu and the right in Israel, have every reason to trumpet these studies in policy discussions. The fact that they do not suggests that they do not believe them.
How can you explain the discrepancy between these reports and others by say Sergio DellaPergola, who is a well respected demographer who believes the exact opposite. Without incontrovertible proof either way, all policy discussions are foolish.
