What is going to happen to Israel when Palestinians make up the majority of the Israeli population? Differing birth rates means that this will happen in the foreseeable future. Could Israel be acting the way it is, i.e., brutally, while hiding its worst brutality from its own people, in order to make conditions worse and worse for the Palestinians? This would provoke more and more violent Palestinian response, and eventually lead to the Israelis claiming that Palestinians in Israel proper have to be expelled for 'security reasons'.
