Elkin Says Religious Israelis Will Soon Become The Majority

Arutz Sheva reports:  Minister of Immigrant Absorption and Jerusalem Affairs Ze’ev Elkin (Likud) called on Tuesday to promote Jewish construction projects in Jerusalem so as not to lose the Jewish majority in Israel’s capital. 

“We’re not taking into account that what is happening in Jerusalem, which has a mix of more haredim and religious people, is also taking place in the rest of the country,” he declared at the 13th annual Jerusalem conference. “It’s just quieter (in the rest of the country).”

“The majority of the State of Israel today is the minority of the future,” Elkin emphasized.

“There are several thing we can do to deal with this,” Elkin continued. “We must prevent culture wars. You can’t act through legal force, rather through dialogue. Whoever acts now with force will soon become a minority and force will be exerted against him.”
