Israel's Muslim population growth slows down

A recent survey indicates a sharp drop in Muslim birthrates in Israel:
Latest Israeli figures show a sharp drop in the Muslim fertility rate from 4.7 children in 2000 to 3.4 in 2013, according to the Central Bureau of Statistics.

In addition, the survey, published for the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday indicates that the growth rate of the Muslim population is slowing: from 3.8 percent in 2000 to 2.4 percent in 2013, according to Israel’s NRG News.

In comparison, the Jewish growth rate was 1.7 percent, the Druze: 1.5 percent, and the Christian: 1.6 percent.
And it figures this would eventually happen, since the lifestyle as Muslims practice it is even more unsustainable than the Haredi lifestyle.
