中東的人口計時炸彈

原刊於National Catholic Reporter,2015年1月5日

While the news headlines last week focused on Palestinian accession to the Rome Statue of the International Criminal Court, a less reported but equally critical development took place.

The Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) released its annual population survey for 2014, in which it predicted that starting in 2016, the number of Palestinians and Jews living in Israel and the Palestinian territories of East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza “will total about 6.42 million each by the end of 2016 provided that current growth rates remain constant.” The bureau also states: “The number of Palestinians in historical Palestine [Israel and the Palestinian territories] will total 7.14 million compared to 6.87 million Jews by the end of 2020.”
