The world population exploded in the 88 years from 1922-2010, growing 3.5 times.
Europe grew at half that level, and most other countries grew 4 to 10 times.
It was in 1922 that the British took over Palestine and when the Palestinians began to accuse Israel of “ethnic cleaning” and “system-wide massacres” of the local Arab population.
Interestingly, the Palestinian population was grown 15.2x over this period — more than almost every country in the world.
The Arab population in Jerusalem has grown over 10 times.
Not exactly the statistics you would imagine for “the most persecuted people in the world” according to the United Nations.
