BBC on Our Demographics


More than 500,000 Jewish settlers live in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, among a Palestinian population of about 2.5 million.

More, actually.

At least 330,000 in Judea and Samaria and over 250,000 in the new neighborhoods in Jerusalem's north, east and south.

Here's Bibi Netanyahu's Joinst Session of Congress speech:

...the dramatic demographic changes that have occurred since 1967. The vast majority of the 650,000 Israelis who live beyond the 1967 lines reside in neighborhoods and suburbs of Jerusalem and Greater Tel Aviv. These areas are densely populated but geographically quite small. Under any realistic peace agreement, these areas, as well as other places of critical strategic and national importance, will be incorporated into the final borders of Israel.

You were really stupid.
you thought the Palestinians would all have left by now.
And you thought that all the Diaspora would come to Israel.
and that the Holocaust would excuse whatever depths of cruelty you sunk to.

And you were wrong on all 3 counts.

And on the other hand, the Arab population is very probably exaggerated. With a "Pal state" in Areas A & B, do you think that will open the door to new community building in Area C?
