With a shortage of Jews to defeat the Palestinians demographically, the Netanyahu government is considering a revision to the traditional rabbinical injunction that a Jew must be born to a Jewish mother -- opening the doors to a new category of 'Jewish' non-Jews.
Excerpt: Now, in killing hopes of Palestinian statehood, Netanyahu has made public his intention to realise the one settler-state solution. Naftali Bennett, Netanyahu's chief rival in the government, is itching to ignore international sentiment and begin annexing large parts of the West Bank.
There is a problem, however. At least half the population in Netanyahu's Greater Israel are Palestinian. And with current birth rates, Jews will soon be an indisputable minority – one ruling over a Palestinian majority.
