ISRAEL - GOOD AND BAD NEWS

Arab citizens of Israel are growing fast in number.

On 21 January 2012, The Economist reports that the promised land needs people:

After the Soviet Union collapsed, one million Russian Jews emigrated to Israel, bringing their money with them.

In 2020, there were only 17,000 emigrants to Israel.

What would you give me for it?

In 1960, 15% of Israeli schoolkids attended Arab or ultra-orthodox schools.

Now it's about 50%.

By 2040, it will be 78%, according to the Taub Centre, an Israeli think-tank.

The Economist also reports on Israel and Azerbaijan: Odd but useful allies

Azerbaijan is a Moslem country.

Israel gets about 33% of its oil from Azerbaijan.

This comes via a pipeline through Moslem Turkey.

Azeri-Israeli trade has grown fast.

One of Azerbaijan's biggest mobile-phone providers is a joint venture with an Israeli company.

In 2011, Israelis and Azeris, in a joint venture, began to produce drones.

25% of the population of Iran are Azeris.

There are reports that Israel is helping train Azerbaijan's forces.
