It’s official; Jewish minority now rules over Arab majority

Akiva Eldar in Haaretz:

Amid a dry economic report published yesterday in TheMarker lies an official announcement/acknowledgment of unparalleled importance: The government of Israel confirms that between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River there is no longer a Jewish majority. In other words, in the territory under Israel’s jurisdiction a situation of apartheid exists. A Jewish minority rules over an Arab majority. 

According to the Central Bureau of Statistics (which is subordinate to the Prime Minister’s Office ), of the 12 million residents living under Israeli rule, the number of Jews is just under 5.9 million (as of April 25 ). Twelve million minus 5.9 million Jews equals 6.1 million non-Jews. In other words, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, there is a pretty Jewish state as far as its laws and customs, but the reality is not so democratic. Foreign sources report that Jews had already become a minority in the area of the greater Land of Israel several years ago. From now on, it is an official statistic.

There will certainly be those who argue that the 12 million includes the resident of the Gaza Strip, which Israel evacuated, and that I should have deducted 1.5 million people from the number of non-Jewish residents. But the 12 million, which does happen to include the residents of the Gaza Strip, is an official figure appearing on Ministry of Finance stationery. If this population “is not considered” for purposes of the demographic balance, the Finance Ministry should be so kind as to deduct it from the limit for receiving the tax breaks and from the balance of its income.

    A preview of the 'One State' perhaps?
    The US knows no bounds to its 'born to rule mentality'.

    It's supposedly the same in the United States. Look at the make-up of the current and past three administrations. One would nevenr find the same dispossesed majority in Israel. American citizens would never be allowed to have so much input and control over or in Israel. There are way too many Israeli citizens who have dual citizenship in America. America needs to do what Israel curretly requires, that dual citizens declare one citizenship; Israel or nothing else.
    You are either loyal to America or not. That's what's wrong with America; there are way too many sayanim type foreign, un registered agents of all nations in American government.

      Yes and no …you are leaving out the Christian far right who are also entrenched supporters of Israel as the 'holy land' not to be in the hands of Muslims.
      The truth is most American Jews like being Americans but they want a $ each way so to speak. I wonder if at the bottom of the Diasporic Jew's financial dedication to Israel is more of a religious thing ….doing the right thing for the land promised them by God…(showing respect for God's gift even if they don't partake of it. maybe to avoid being labelled not a true Jew )
