Israeli population

Globes :

...Israel's population stands at 6.955 million, including 5.3 million Jews, 1.4 million Arabs, and 299,000 classified as "other." Jews comprise 80% of the population, while Arabs constitute 20%. During last year, the population rose by 124,000 (1.7%), and there were 19,000 new immigrants, primarily from the former Soviet Union and Ethiopia. There were 120,000 babies born during the past year, 7,000 more than the previous year.

They should import Chassidim to keep pace with the high Arab birth rate.
