Skip to comments.48% of Israeli Jews Back ‘Expulsion’ or ‘Transfer’ of Arabs (aka race-based mass deportation)

Almost half of all Israeli Jews are in favor of transferring or expelling the states Arab population, a major U.S. survey of Israeli public opinion has found.
That staggering statistic comes from the Pew Research Centers report on Israels religiously divided society, released on March 8.
The Israelis polled were not responding to an Israeli government policy proposal, but rather the broad concept of transfer and expulsion. Forty-eight percent of Israeli Jews strongly agree or agree with the idea while 46% strongly disagree or disagree.
[Jewish] Israelis are feeling, at the time we took this survey at least, quite divided about the long-term prospects for living together with the non-Jewish population, said Alan Cooperman, director of religion research at Pew. According to the report, Jews constitute about 81% of the countrys population; non-Jews, the vast majority Arabs, constitute 19%. There are 8.4 million people living in Israel total.

How many Jews live on the West Bank or in Gaza?
That would be ZERO.
Expulsion of the “Arabs” is not “race based”, it is based on their allegiance to a foreign government, the “Umma” and a desire to wipe Israel and the Jewish people off the map.
“Expulsion of the Arabs is not race based,
Of course it isn’t but the accusation of racism is the overused insult of this century.
It has become meaningless.
There are half a million Jews living in the West Bank.
Wow. I’d never heard that.
How do they survive?
In a few years that will change as Jews become the minority in Israel.
It might come to that situation, where the least bad solution would be to segregate Jews from Arabs.
Shut up, goy. You some kind of bigot?
In all fairness, such a policy isn’t inherently draconian.
(all information from CIA Factbook)
Israel has a population of about 8 million. Of that 17.5% are Muslim. About 1.4m. The population of Gaza is about 1.9m. The population of the West Bank is about 2.8m. So the total Muslim population in all three is about 6.1m.
If Israel paid every man, woman and child, a typical Egyptian wage of $4,000/yr to leave, it would cost about $25 billion. For perhaps double that, they could purchase all their land for a fair value for perhaps another $25 billion.
Israel has a GDP of about $290 billion per year. Israel currently spends 5.58% of its GDP on defense. About $16 billion a year.
No, the deportation in question would be race-based. The respondents were simply asked about “Arabs” living in Israel. (disclaimer: I’m not a fan of Arabs either).
Israel’s immigration policy also features a near-absolute requirement that potential immigrants be Jewish.
Naomi says that like it's a bad thing. Isn't that precious.
Some people cannot live together, is that too hard to understand? Those arabs want you, and everybody with a Jewish-sounding name name like yours, dead. All those stabbings lately? "Israeli" muslims.
Naomi, sympathizing with a mortal enemy doesn't make you more enlightened than Israeli civilians afraid to go to the market for fear of being killed. They want safety, not compassion for the enemy.
And exactly what do the resident muslim citizens say about their Israeli co-citizens?
If the deportees in question don’t want to be deported, regardless of payment, then it would indeed be draconian by western standards. Not that draconian is bad, however.
“(aka race-based mass deportation)”
When did “Arabs” become a “race”?
Hey, I’m not sticking up here for anyone except my own people, who are neither Arab nor Jewish.
A very lawyerly response. However, this same publication reports that Jews are a race.
According to Wikipedia, Israeli govt spending on those in settlements is double what it on those Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. Most of this funding is for security since the actual cost of housing in the settlements is much cheaper than in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv
Plus, the settlements are massively funded by US NGOs.
I have a soft spot for my own people, like Jews have in spades for themselves.
The Arabs living in Israel are allowed more freedom than any other Arab country. Yet, the Israeli Arabs want to see the destruction of Israel. Israel needs to deport the Palestinians from Gaza and the West Bank into an new home for them in the Sinai and keep it walled off from all other cultures. The Palestinians are psychotic killers.
