Gaza: Genocide fail

The CIA’s 2014 population data is out. For those of you generating so much noise about the "genocide" in Gaza, here’s some quantitative data to ruminate over.

The 2104 life expectancy for Gaza is 74.64 years. Thats higher than Malaysia 74.52. Its higher than the left’s current darling, Venezuela. (74.39) . Its higher than Gaza’s neighbors in Jordan (74.10 years) and Egypt ( 73.45 years). Its even higher than Turkey (73.29 years).

Gaza’s low rates of Infant mortality also belie any accusation of "genocide".

Infant mortality rate compares the number of deaths of infants under one year old in a given year per 1,000 live births in the same year, and is often used as an indicator of the level of health in a country

Gaza has a lower rate of infant mortality (15.46) than its neighbors in Egypt. (22.41 deaths per thousand births), Syria (15.79), Jordan (15.73). Turkey (21.43 )

In spite of these objective quantatative measurements, the Palestinians are still the highest per capita recipients of aid in the world. And in spite of all evidence to the contrary, the enemies of Israel and the enemies of truth continue to bandy about spurilous accusations of "genocide".
