Demographic trends worry Israel

Population growth figures suggest Palestinians in Israel and occupied territories will outnumber Israelis by 2020.

    Some Israeli officials are worried that a growing Palestinian population could undermine the country's identity as a Jewish state.

    According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, demographic figures project that Palestinians, who live mainly in the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza, will outnumber Israelis within a decade.
