Demographics in Proportion

There seem to be around 2,600,000 Arabs in Judea and Samaria.  That includes "East Jerusalem". *

(See here; and here)

There are also 360,000 Jews in Judea and Samaria.  But add on another 300,000 living in Jerusalem's post-67 neighborhoods.  Total sum equals 650,000 (to be conservative).

In other words, without Jerusalem, the Jews represent 13.48% of the population in those areas.

With Jerusalem, the figure is 16.9%.

The proportion of Arabs in Israel is 20%.

In other words, we have basically a mirror-image.

If Israel can maintain itself with a minority of 20%, "Palestine" can't be a state with 17% Jews?



I have received these figures from Yoram Ettinger:

The number of Arabs in Judea & Samaria, as of December 31, 2012, is 1.67MN.

The number of Arabs in Jerusalem (within the municipal lines) is about 300,000.

So that would be 2 million.

Therefore the correct proportion of Jews in Judea and Samaria, 650,000, is over 30%.
