More Arabs than Jews in ‘Israel’

A REPORT claims there are now more Arabs than Jews in Israel and the occupied territories.

Comparing the annual Rosh Hashanah population report from Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics, released September 2, with the midyear (July 1) population figures for the West Bank and Gaza in the CIA World Factbook, it turns out that Jews are now (as of Rosh Hashanah) outnumbered by Arabs under Israeli sovereignty by a grand total of 50,827.

But it all depends on whether you include the Gaza Strip, which is no longer under Israeli control.
