The Jewish birthrate in Jerusalem is higher than the Arab birthrate, putting an end to reports of an Arab demographic threat in the united capital.
The birthrate in the expected life of mothers is 4.2 children for Jewish mothers compared with 3.9 children for Arab mothers, according to the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies (JIIS).
Reflecting the trend in the rest of Israel, the birthrate for Jews represents a dramatic reversal and is on the increase while the Arab birthrate is declining.
Yasser Arafat put his hope in the Arab "kuss" (vagina) (not personally, because he was gay).
We put our hope in God. We say the Shehiyanu prayer (thanking God that we have lived to see this day).
