Moreover, withdrawal from Yesha does not deal with the "demographic threat" from Israeli Arab and Bedouin populations in the Galilee and Negev.
The "demographic" argument is but a thinly veiled support for unilateral retreat, forced "transfer" of Jews (only) from their homes and the creation of a terror-based Palestinian state.
