Gaza officials have said that 14,194 babies were born in the sector in the first three months of the year.
1,153 people died in the same timeframe, according to these officials, which - if true - would make the ratio of births to deaths of 12.3-1 the second highest in the world, barely behind the UAE with 13.1-1 and way ahead of everyone else.
Back in the 1930s the reason give against Jews immigrating to British Mandate Palestine was that the land did not have enough "absorptive capacity" to handle Jewish immigration - at a time that the population of the entire Mandate was barely one million.
Yet when there are 1.8 million people in Gaza alone, less than two percent of the area of the Mandate, no one is saying that perhaps Gazans should be a little more careful about population control.
Instead, the UN blames the Jews for people committing suicide in Gaza, with no blame for their leaders, their demographic policies or their decisions to divert increasingly scarce resources to terrorist infrastructure.
Can you even imagine NGOs to promote birth control in Gaza?
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
