#1 How to lie with numbers?

#2 I have no idea of the accuracy of the numbers but it is reported in many places that the birthrate is crashing throughout the muzz world. Of course, it is a sad truth that people living in self made hellholes, barely getting by, somehow always seem to have enough energy to reproduce in an indiscriminate manner.

#4 Birthrates do not always mean increased population. Some populations die young because they convince their own to blow themselves up.

Also that map is confusing, it is simply palestinian increases? if so I see at least one area with negative population growth.

#5 I’m out and about at the moment, and so away from my saved links but there was a study about a decade ago showing that the Palestinians at that time — through double counting Jerusalem, inflating births, and ignoring deaths and emigration, had over-counted their population growth by 1 million souls since Israel gave them self-rule... and therefor stopped doing their census. It’s probably considerably worse now. I am shocked that Stratfor fell for it— that does not bode well for their other predictions.

When you're in the business of making bylines from a jumble of everything from C1 to E6 as 'credible' to paying subscribers, there's bound to come a time when you let slip a few untruths. The armchair strategists who cite you without actually setting foot in Israel certainly won't notice.

#7 Here is one link on the subject. Lots of numbers, but woven around them an explanation for how the Palestinian figures ended up so far from reality.
