Does this survey include the Arabs living in the West Bank and Gaza? If so that is hardly a fair comparison. You can't compare apples to oranges and call it a "fair survey". Of course there is extreme poverty in the Gaza strip and W. Bank because sadly the PA/Hamas can't get their act together and really do what is best for their people like a normal government should. What they need to do is stop shooting at each other and everyone around them and start putting their energy into building their own infrastructure. Fire Hamas and get a government that will make conditions better for their people not worse.
