Israelis can be forgiven for not paying much notice, given other issues like absorbing the consequences of the elections. But the Palestinians have dispensed with the usual bromide you would expect of talking about prosperity through peace, and have begun to let it slip in an official way that demographics is the inconvenient truth Israelis should be grappling with.
