Anyone who bothers to check the facts can see that the Arab population of the West Bank and Gaza has increased from some 1 million in 1967 to about 3.5 million today. The notion that Israel is planning "mass deportations" from the West Bank is ludicrous, if that was the plan why let the Arab population first more then triple? Why take all the steps the Netanyahu government has taken in the last year to ease up on West Bank restrictions and promote economic development in the WB? Its not clear at all how this order will be used, if at all, and whether it will stand up to any court challenge. So Haaretz, please stop the hysteria.
