ABSTRACT
The article discusses the political aspects of demographic data describing the populations of Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. A demographic panic taking place in Israel in the 2000s following the publication of population census data by the Palestinian Authority is described, noting that the data shows a significant increase in the Arab populations of Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. The uncertain nature of demographic population forecasting and intentional inaccuracy of the Palestinian Authority data are discussed.
