Be Fruitful, Multiply, and Protect Israel’s Borders

Being such a tiny country, we in Israel often forget that we have a lot to teach the world, but teach doesn’t mean preach. It’s usually just a matter of setting a good example.

Contrary to the mainstream of Western Civilization, Israel continues to buck the problematic trends on the international demographic front. And that’s good news.

The average non-Muslim American family has approximately two children per family, if that many, and of course a dog and a cat (Note the increase in the number of “pet department stores” in American cities as opposed to baby stores). More troubling than that negative statistic is the fact that the average Muslim family has far more, usually in the range of five or six children per family.

On the European continent, the rates are even more shocking, with the average non-Muslim family having far less than two children per family, while Muslim families are having several times more. All one has to do is some simple arithmetic to see where it’s going.

As Western Civilization moves further and further away from traditional child-centered families, it is gradually self-destructing before our very eyes. Even more disturbing is that most Europeans and Americans seem either unaware or helpless in combating this ominous trend, despite the fact that there are many solutions, most of which I describe in my book, “The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age of Obama”.


The glimmer of brightness in the darkness is that Israel is becoming a demographic light unto the nations. According to the latest demographic research reported by the Central Bureau of Statistics, the birth rate of Israeli Muslims is continuing to fall, as the Jewish birthrate rises.

In 2013, the average Muslim family in Israel had 3.4 children, a significant fall from the 4.7 children recorded in 2000. While the Muslim birthrate is still higher than the rising Jewish rate, which now stands at 3.1, the gap is rapidly closing, and all indications are, that the Jewish rate will surpass that of the Muslims in the next few years.

Let’s be encouraged by these positive trends, which significantly, are being seen across the Jewish political/religious spectrum, although the largest families and the fastest growth rates are still being felt in the biblical heartland of Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem.

Coupled with all of this good birth news are the ongoing reports of sharply reduced illegal immigration into Israel, the result of strong action taken by the Israeli government to protect Israel’s borders from illegal infiltration. Could it be that our friends in North America have what to learn from us?
