Comment

Ronald S. Lauder is President of the World Jewish Congress and former US Ambassador to Austria.

On July 1, Yair Lapid became Israel’s 14th prime minister. Although he will only serve as a caretaker until the general elections are held on November 1, he has a unique opportunity to make history by helping his nation face a complicated reality: enormous economic success and policy coupled with a growing demographic challenge.

The State of Israel is experiencing a golden age. For more than 15 years – since the Second Lebanon War in 2006 – it has maintained relative calm, strategic stability and prosperity. The economy is booming: over the past decade, the average annual growth rate has been above 3.5%, accelerating to an astonishing level. 8 percent in 2021. The national debt ratio (in relation to GDP) is significantly lower than that of the United States; the unemployment rate is close to zero; and the standard of living continues to rise. The high-tech revolution has propelled Israel to the forefront of global technology, its unique spirit of innovation attracting investors from around the world.

The Jewish state has signed peace agreements with six Arab League countries, and its relationship with much of the Arab world is one of deep cooperation – de facto peace. Countries other than the United States, including China, Japan, India, Europe and Brazil, view Israel as a strategic partner. With its population approaching 10 million and its GDP per capita eclipsing that of the UK, Israel is an amazing success story. In many ways, the Israel of 2022 fulfilled both the Zionist dream of its founders and the Jewish people’s desire for renewal after the terrible tragedy of the Holocaust.

And yet the nation faces a grave existential threat – not just from Iran’s nuclear capabilities, but based on its own demographics. In 2020, for the first time in many decades, the Arab population living between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan slightly exceeded the Jewish population, according to the analysis conducted by two research groups associated with Israel’s defense establishment. And despite some shifts in birth rate trends, this small Palestinian majority will become large in a decade or two. This means that if the status quo persists and Israel continues to rule the West Bank, it will in a relatively short time be faced with a cruel dilemma: if it gives the Palestinians full citizenship – and therefore all rights – it will not will be more Jewish. If it does not, it will no longer be democratic. Either way, Israel as a democratic Jewish state will cease to exist.

The profound changes that are disrupting Palestinian society further complicate the situation. According to a survey driven by Khalil Shikaki According to the well-regarded Palestinian Center for Policy and Polling think tank, around 25% of West Bank residents now favor negotiations with Israel, and only 28% still support a two-state solution. On the other hand, 55% approve of an armed struggle against Israel. Young Palestinians are turning their backs on ideas of reconciliation, compromise and partition and embracing the idea of ​​one state. The emerging demographic reality and increasingly divisive Palestinian mindset predict the Palestinian demand that Israel will likely soon face: one person, one vote.

No external threat is as dangerous to the Zionist enterprise as this internal threat. The basic premise of Zionism is that there should be a place on earth where Jews are in the majority – so that this majority can exercise its right to self-determination within a democratic framework. If the Jews do not have a solid majority in their own country, Zionism will collapse.

Unfortunately, an apathetic public and a dysfunctional political system prevent Israel from dealing with this problem. Suffering from terrorist attacks, most Israelis believe – rightly – that they should not back down under fire. But when the waves of terror subside, they feel no urgency to act, confident that they can continue to rule over millions of Palestinians without truly perilous consequences. Economic prosperity, military prowess and international prestige blind them to the fact that each passing day brings them closer to the abyss.

It is time for Israel’s friends and allies to make their voices heard. For the past 40 years, I have worked tirelessly for the Jewish state. I love Israel. I am committed to it and I am doing everything I can for it. But today it is my duty to call on the new Israeli Prime Minister to recognize his nation’s predicament and change course.

President Biden’s upcoming visit to Jerusalem and Ramallah presents a unique opportunity. The same goes for the emergence of a US-Arab-Israeli security alliance. Lapid must seek a creative way to address the Palestinian challenge, working hand in hand with the United States, the Sunni world and moderate Palestinians. Even if it seems impossible to achieve a two-state solution, the Prime Minister must do everything in his power to avert a one-state catastrophe. No other mission is as important — or as urgent. The very future of Israel is at stake.

There are plenty of examples of bitter enemies turning into unlikely allies precisely because they pose too much of a danger to each other.

Britain and Russia spent most of the 19e century competing in the “Great Game” on India. Britain built the navy with which Japan defeated Russia in the 1905 war. But Britain and Russia fought on the same side in the world wars of the 20e century.

Russia and China fought a war in 1929 and an undeclared border war in 1969, but share common interests against the United States and its allies.

Is Israel using the Ukraine crisis to tilt demographics in its favor? https://therightroadtopeace.com/is-israel-using-the-ukraine-crisis-to-tilt-demographics-in-its-favor/ Tue, 29 Mar 2022 16:36:20 +0000 https://therightroadtopeace.com/is-israel-using-the-ukraine-crisis-to-tilt-demographics-in-its-favor/ The Middle Eastern country’s concern about the European conflict may go beyond humanitarian reasons.

The Middle Eastern country’s concern about the European conflict may go beyond humanitarian reasons.

Israel has made numerous statements in recent weeks welcoming Ukrainian Jews”residenceto Israel, if they seek to emigrate. Unlike the Ukrainians with Temporary protected status (TPS) in the EU – which, as its name suggests, offers temporary protection – all Jews can claim citizenship without questions under the Law of Return, even if they have never visited .

“This is an important moment, a moment for which we were destined and for which the State of Israel was created,” Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said two weeks after the start of the conflict in Ukraine. Tel Aviv said it expects up to 100,000 Jews to arrive from Ukraine — and even Russia — in the coming months.

“The great mission is to open doors, to open hearts, to welcome our brothers and sisters fleeing a difficult war. Be sure that [they will have a reception that] will even alleviate a bit of the trauma they are going through, an inconceivable trauma – uprooting themselves in a matter of hours or days and moving to a distant and different country,” Bennett continued.

Despite talk of humanitarianism amid the trauma, Israel announced that only 5,000 new non-Jewish Ukrainians could come to Israel as refugees, while 20,000 would already be permit remain during the conflict.

This positioning exposes Israel’s discriminatory motives and alludes to a policy of opening borders to a population – not necessarily because they are in need – but rather as a means of modifying the national framework. demographic.

This is a perfect opportunity for Tel Aviv to use Ukrainian refugees as a means to gain demographic dividends, knowing that global sympathy for Ukrainians could overshadow such a politically motivated resettlement plan.

Unknowingly or not, President Zelenskyy and other members of his team have brought water to Israel by repeatedly reiterating that Ukraine is to like Israel, defending itself against “total destruction”. It is unclear what the purpose of this rhetoric is – whether to win the sympathy of the Western public or to attempt to distort all the violations of international law and human rights that Israel commits on a daily basis.

Achievement of the resettlement objective

The UN recently announced that about 3.7 million Ukrainians have fled the violence in their country since it began on February 24, adding that in the first ten days of the conflict, some two million people have been displaced.

The majority of these people have sought refuge, mainly in countries neighboring the European Union. In fact, Ukrainians and residents of Ukraine are eligible for TPS and are therefore granted a renewable residency period of one to three years and access to health care, education and housing.

The European Commission has even allocated 500 million euros — a quarter of its total humanitarian budget — to the Ukrainian crisis, so that support is both available and easily accessible.

Since the beginning of the crisis, the media like certain politicians have continued to vomit racist rhetoric against refugees from diverse backgrounds, while the rhetoric about Ukrainians has been consistent and unqualified.

This then begs the question of why Israel, a country in the Middle East, which is both currently and persistently violating international human rights, is stepping in and vouching for support for Ukrainians, especially when a large part of the international refugee “problem” is centered in the Middle East region?

To underscore both the conscious construction and dedication to this project, two key observations can be made. First, the announcement of the World Zionist Organization dedicating 1,000 new units to Ukrainian Jews, who have become Israelis. These units are located in the occupied Golan Heights as well as in the occupied Naqab region. The Golan Heights is still disputed by Syria as sovereign Syrian territory. This statement has been validated by many international organizations including the United Nations.

Second, Israel has established, through the Jewish Agency for Israel, an organization that supports and funds Jewish immigration and settlement in Israel and occupied Palestine, several Ukrainian border stations for Ukrainian Jews, and provided direct flights to Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. In a single week, the agency raised $15 million.

To elaborate, Ukrainian Jews were essentially called to return “home”. This assertion in itself is contradictory because Ukrainians have faced violence in their country of origin and are waiting for this to be resolved before they can return. Israel, unlike the EU, however, does not see it that way. This injustice is not only observed by comparing the treatment of said refugees with that of native Palestinians, but also by considering migration and the mistreatment of Ethiopian Jews.

This plan, while ostensibly created to support those facing a humanitarian crisis, appears to be just another method to “increase” the number of Jews in Israel. Israelis would do well to remember that these are people fleeing a conflict zone and may not be as eager to erase their nationality and culture to claim demographic dominance in a country as they probably have never visited before.

The undercount could affect federal funding, political representation of blacks, Latinos and other minority communities in the country.

Blacks, Latinos and Native Americans were undercounted in the 2020 U.S. National Census, according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau, potentially affecting political representation and federal funding for communities with large minority populations.

The once-a-decade nationwide population count is used to draw U.S. legislative maps in each of the 50 U.S. states, as well as helping distribute billions in federal funds for everything from public housing to health care. and the construction of highways.

For decades, the census overcounted white people while undercounting people of color, but those trends accelerated in the 2020 census, according to Census Bureau statistical analyzes designed to test the accuracy of census results.

The Latino population count was likely 5% too low, more than three times the estimated undercount for the 2010 census, the bureau said Thursday.

More than 3% of blacks were not included, while Native Americans and Alaska Natives on reservations were undercounted by more than 5%, both worse than in 2010. Non-Hispanic whites and Asians were overrated, the bureau said.

The results likely indicate that the US population has become even more ethnically and urbanly diverse than the official 2020 results showed, and that the white majority has shrunk. Census results released last year showed an increasingly diverse nation, with the non-Hispanic white population shrinking for the first time in history.

The US Census Bureau released two reports that measured whether certain populations were undercounted or overrepresented in the count [File: Matthew Brown/AP Photo]

The 2020 census faced several challenges, including the coronavirus pandemic, which forced the office to temporarily suspend door-to-door operations and may have made some households more reluctant to speak to enumerators.

Despite a well-funded campaign, Native Americans expected the people living on approximately 300 reservations across the United States to be underappreciated again.

“At the end of the day, when you have your whole religious calendar that’s been interrupted, when you’re watching ‘How can I bear this huge health risk in my community’, it really wasn’t at the forefront of the everyone’s mind,” said Ahtza Chavez, executive director of the NAVA Education Project, which led the New Mexico Native Census Coalition.

Demography experts said an ultimately unsuccessful effort by former President Donald Trump to ask census respondents if they were US citizens may have deterred Latino populations from responding.

“The 2020 census continued to undercount some racial and ethnic groups while overcounting others,” Timothy Kennel, deputy division chief for statistical methods, told reporters at a virtual news conference. “Even with the limitations, the 2020 census data is suitable for many uses and decision-making.”

Prior to the census, civil rights groups warned that marginalized communities across the United States risked losing access to services if they were not counted accurately.

They had accused the Trump administration of seeking to politicize the process and limit minority participation for political purposes.

The political balance between states in the 435-member U.S. House of Representatives shifted after the 2020 census, allowing Texas, Florida, North Carolina, Oregon and Montana gain seats thanks to population growth, while California, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan and West Virginia lost seats.

The data released Thursday included only national estimates. A more detailed state-level analysis is expected in a few months.

NORTHAMPTON:

Demography plays an important role in influencing house prices.

Seminal research on housing prices in the United States by N Gregory Mankiw and David N Weil in 1989 showed that the quantity of housing demanded exhibits a sharp increase between 20 and 30 years, with a large proportion of households becoming owner-occupiers, which stabilizes around the age of 40 and declines thereafter.

These age groups may vary from one country to another, but the central hypothesis is that older households consume less housing than middle-aged households. Therefore, a lower proportion of prime-age buyers leads to lower house prices.

There is a large body of literature that examines various factors contributing to housing prices (supply, demand, institutional development of financial and mortgage markets), however, the role of demographics in influencing housing demand and prices has received little attention.

How do demographic changes affect house prices?

Demographic changes affect house prices through a number of different channels. These include the impact of changes in life expectancy, international immigration, urbanization and fertility.

In advanced economies, sustained increases in life expectancy over time, resulting in aging populations, declining fertility and changing family structures, can be seen to have a negative impact on prices overall housing.

A recent Brookings Institution report on US housing shows that US demographics have changed significantly over the years.

Among other trends, multigenerational and mixed family households have increased as US households “double down” to reduce housing costs. However, this has not kept pace with the proportional increase in the housing stock.

This finding is also supported by a recent report by the Greater London Authority, which shows that the overall housing stock has not kept pace with population increases in various global cities such as London, New York, Sydney and Vienna.

The Pakistani case

Pakistan’s population explosion and rapid urbanization have put immense pressure on decent and affordable housing. The latest data from the 2017 census shows that Pakistan’s population grew by 57% between 1998 and 2017.

A report by the IGC “A Framework for Affordable Housing in Pakistan” states that with an urban population expected to grow by 2.3 million per year over the next 20 years, this translates into a demand of 360,000 households. , or 6.3 individuals per household.

A demographic breakdown of the population from the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics from 2007 shows that nearly 53% of the population is in the youngest age group ranging from 0 to 19 years.

Applying Mankiw and Weil’s (1989) life-cycle hypothesis, with little or no likelihood of the youngest age group becoming homeowners, it is generally expected that Housing prices remain high due to strong demand from older age groups (30s and beyond).

Policy responses

Growing pressure on urban areas of Pakistan due to migration and population expansion is leading to increased demand for housing. However, no proportionate policy response exists to deal with the provision of affordable and decent housing in the country’s growing urban cities.

Moreover, the lack of open access data from statistical agencies also reflects a general lack of attention or priority towards data-driven decision-making.

Access to quality and timely data sources can prove very beneficial for public sector authorities, not only in terms of providing adequate and affordable housing, but more importantly in regulating any potential property price bubbles. .

(CNN) – While Friday’s jobs report shows a robust job marketa record number of workers left their jobs in 2021.

A new report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that 4.3 million Americans quit in December alone.

The latest figures come as data shows Latinas are leaving the workforce at higher rates than any other demographic group, worrying economists.

But for many women who quit during the pandemic, the decision is paying off.

The University of California, Los Angeles’s Latino Policy and Politics Initiative found that between March 2020 and March 2021, the number of Latinas in the workforce fell by almost 3%.

“Some of our most discerning and critical workers are going to be pushed out of the workforce and that’s going to be detrimental to all Americans,” said Sonja Diaz, founding executive director of the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.

Researchers say the mass exodus was caused by many women losing their jobs, with others leaving to focus on family needs, citing a lack of childcare support exacerbated by COVID-19.

For women like Erika Cruz, her six-figure technical work has simply become unsatisfying. The idea of ​​quitting was sparked while making TikTok videos, and she became the founder of Purpose Driven Latina.

“My account kind of exploded,” she said. “Once I decided to leave, I had already successfully completed part of my group coaching program, Purpose Driven Latina, and my job at that time almost took me away from that passion project.”

Cruz said her decision came with sacrifices, such as moving in with her mother, who lost her job as a housekeeper during the pandemic.

“It was hard to leave work because my mom was basically dependent on me,” Cruz said. “But I really had to trust my intuition.”

She’s not the only one. Personal finance expert Jully-Alma Taveras said more and more Latin clients are coming to see her, wanting to create “job exit plans”.

“When you think about equal pay, Latinas don’t make that dollar at all,” she said. “We’re talking about 57 cents for every white man’s dollar. So I think it’s really hard for Latinas to kind of stay.

It’s a trend that has some economists worried about how it might impact workplace diversity amid a national labor shortage.

“We need workers who are in the kinds of jobs that are both available now and will be in the near future,” Diaz said.

LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) – This week, the Gregg County Commissioners Court approved a $ 380,000 federal COVID-19 health disparity grant for the Gregg County Department of Health.

“The four groups of people were the homeless, low-income, African-American and Hispanic communities, to provide education and also try to get more immunization rates if possible,” said Dr. Lewis Browne, the Gregg County Health Authority.

“Their percentages of vaccine levels are below average and we’re trying to reach those areas to get them involved in the process,” said Gregg County Judge Bill Stoudt.

The grant will provide funding for educational and community outreach programs, such as this weekend’s collaboration at the East Texas Yamboree with the Vaccine Awareness Coalition and Health on the Move in East Texas.

“What we need to do is meet our customers where they are. And a lot of times that literally means going to where they live and meeting them where they are, ”said Anita Lowe, clinical instructor at UT Tyler Longview campus. “Specifically in communities that have a greater disparity related to social determinants and care. “

“There is a lot of mistrust within some communities, so we are trying to get, to regain their trust,” said Ashley Sloan, immunization program manager for the Gregg County Health Department.

“We’re finally in the third, fourth quarter, we’ve reached the 20-yard line, and we want to win on the goal line, but there are still areas that we need to address, and this grant is going to help us. to do it, ”Stoudt said.

The next Gregg County Health Department community outreach will take place on November 12 at the Highway 80 Rescue Mission.

NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro speaks with Samantha Artiga of the Kaiser Family Foundation about racial disparities in COVID-19 deaths.



LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST:

We have repeatedly heard from officials that this is now a pandemic of unvaccinated people. Most people who die and get sick have not been vaccinated against COVID-19. So does this mean that the demographic composition of those affected by this pandemic has changed? To answer this question, we are now joined by Samantha Artiga. She is Vice President and Program Director of Racial Equity and Health Policy at the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Welcome to the program.

SAMANTHA ARTIGA: Thank you very much for inviting me.

GARCIA-NAVARRO: At the beginning of this pandemic, it was mostly black people and Latinos who were affected. They were the front line workers – weren’t they? – those who were in low-income communities with systemic problems, with access to health care. And they may have had underlying conditions. Has this changed since the vaccine?

ARTIGA: So what we see when we look at the cumulative data since the start of the pandemic is that we continue to see disparities in terms of higher rates of infection, illness and death among people from color. And above all, when age differences are taken into account, these gaps are even greater. But when we look at trends in the data over time, we find that the disparities in illness and death, especially for blacks and Hispanics, have narrowed over time. And so those gaps are not as large as they were in the early stages of the pandemic.

GARCIA-NAVARRO: So I guess the difference is that the vaccine is online. What do you think explains this narrowing of racial disparities?

ARTIGA: So I think a key factor is certainly the deployment of vaccination. Vaccinations provided increased protections across racial and ethnic groups, and we saw that while Hispanics and Blacks were less likely to have been vaccinated during the early parts of the vaccination rollout, these disparities in vaccinations are also shrinking now. I think at the same time, there are a series of other factors that may influence these trends, including an increased spread of the virus among the white population due to various factors.

GARCIA-NAVARRO: We’ve seen a lot of stories, haven’t we? — about its impact on predominantly white communities in the Midwest and South, for example, where people might not want to get vaccinated for a variety of reasons, but some of them might be political. How big is this disparity now between white people and people of color in terms of impacts?

ARTIGA: So when we look at the very latest data on case rates and death rates, there’s little difference in rates per 100,000 among whites, blacks, and Hispanics. Again, this does not control age. When we control for age, we generally see larger disparities because people of color tend to be a younger demographic. If we look at how the pandemic has evolved over time, initially much of the push happened in urban areas, which are more racially diverse. We now see since the end of 2020 that much of the virus is occurring in more rural areas. At the same time, we know that vaccination rates are lower in rural areas and that rural areas are home to a higher proportion of white residents. So, this geographic shift over time in the spread of the virus may lead to increased spread among the white population.

GARCIA-NAVARRO: How do you think these trends will change, if at all, when children under 12 start getting vaccinated?

ARTIGA: Well, we know that children under 12 are a particularly racially diverse population. I think expanding vaccine eligibility to children under 12 will also continue to narrow some of the gaps we still see in vaccination rates because they include a greater proportion of children of color. So really, this expansion only reinforces the continued focus on equity as we continue to work to increase immunization rates and recover from the pandemic.

GARCIA-NAVARRO: Last question – obviously this country has been brutalized by the delta variant – 2,000 deaths a day, although those numbers are going down. As someone looking at this data for a living, what do you think we’ll see in the future?

ARTIGA: I think it’s important to recognize that while the demographic patterns of those most affected by the pandemic right now are changing, the underlying structural inequalities that have exposed people of color and low-income populations income at increased risk at the start of the pandemic have not changed. And so, they still remain at heightened risk as the pandemic continues to evolve and potential future health threats may emerge.

GARCIA-NAVARRO: This is Samantha Artiga from the Kaiser Family Foundation. Thank you very much.

ARTIGA: Thank you very much.
