The Survival of Israel

July 28, 1985

Kahane's imperative that "Jews Must Stay Israel's Majority" requires that Israel recognize and act on the fact of Palestinian nationalism. So as to assure Israel's "Jewishness" Israel must divest itself of the "territories" conquered in the Six-Day War of 1967--the West Bank and the Gaza Strip with an estimated Palestinian Arab population of close to 1 1/2 million, and a birthrate double, and more, that of Israelis.

Indeed, Jews should stay Israel's majority, but this can be realized only by recognizing the national demands of the Palestinians for independence in their own state.
