A principal argument of those who support the division of Israel's capital is the need to improve the city's demographic balance between Jews and Arabs in favor of Jews. However, a higher Arab birthrate is not the primary cause for the decrease in the Jewish majority in Jerusalem. Rather, the main reason is that large numbers of Jews are leaving the city due to housing and employment difficulties. To reverse Jewish emigration from Jerusalem, the city must be declared an area of national priority of the highest order. This study includes sections on: An Alternative Solution to the Demographic Problem, The Security Implications of Dividing Jerusalem, Potential Danger to Jewish and Christian Holy Sites in the Event of Division, The Municipal Aspect of Division, and The Legal Aspect of Division.
