The demographic solution

The following extract is from an article by Meron Benvenisti in Ha'aretz. He was deputy mayor of Jerusalem and also an advocate of a binational state.

No one mentions the fact that the "demographic balance" is fundamentally fictitious. It was created through a manipulation of Jerusalem's borders in 1967, based on the principle of preserving a minimum of Arabs and a maximum of land for Jews. In the name of this principle, more and more exposed or dispensable hilltops have been annexed to the city since 1967 and anointed with the holy oil of the Eternal City.
