in response to reader comment: Slight underestimation

This is for 2011

As you can see the total fertility rate is 3.0 and if you look at the progression Arab births have remained pretty much constant, but Jewish births have increased by 30 thousand annually.

So Israel is indeed happy, and having children out of happiness.

i wonder what is the source of the 2.65 number
