Record birth rate in Israel over past year

From Israel Hayom Newsletter, April 25, 2012, by Zeev Klein:

As Israel turns 64, it takes the command to "be fruitful and multiply" to heart • Population reaches 7.8 million, an almost tenfold increase since the state's establishment in 1948, when it was home to 806,000 people.

Baby boom: Israel's population is almost 10 times larger than on its first Independence Day in 1948.
