Genocide fail: Life Expectancy in Gaza and the West bank

The overall  life expectancy at birth for the world is  66.57 years (64.52 years for males and 68.76 years for females) according to CIA World Factbook . Both Gaza and the West bank far exceed this average.  (Hows that genocide going for you, btw?)

In 2011,  a person born in Gaza can expect to live significantly longer  (73.42) than their peers in Egypt (72.12), Turkey( 71.96), Syria (71.19)or Iran  (71.14).  In fact, the life expectancy in Gaza is about on par with that "workers paradise"  of China

Remember this when JVP tells you about the "slow motion genocide" in the disputed territories.
