Former Ambassador Yoram Ettinger recently published the results of a detailed population analysis. "An audit of births, deaths, school and voter registration and migration documentation from Israel and the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics...exposes a 66 percent distortion in the current number of West Bank (or, Judea and Samaria) Arabs: 1.55 million and not 2.5 million, as claimed by the Palestinian Authority...Inflated numbers have provided the Palestinians with inflated international foreign aid and inflated water supply by Israel." An accurate assessment of current demographic trends left Ettinger optimistic.
