Subject: The media lie about Gaza.
We keep hearing about Gaza being the most densely populated area on earth.
This is a media lie.
It is part of a media attempt to portray and to dramatise the conflict between Israel and the Hamas terror regime as a humanitarian crisis on an unprecedented scale.
This also is untrue.
I will be sending facts about the convoys that have delivered food, fuel, medicines, medical equipment, etc., as well as the huge amounts of funding received by Hamas into the Gaza Strip, in another email.
Basically, these are media lies with an underlying motive to portray Israel is an unfavourable ( to put it mildly) light and to portray the Palestinians to be suffering for no better reason than an aggressive and brutal Israel.
All media lies compounded by their repeated use.
For now, please receive key facts relating to the population density of Gaza in relation to other areas of the world.
Compare Gaza (8666 people per square mile) with Monaco (41,608 people per square mile).
Compare Gaza (8666 people per square mile) with Cairo (82,893 people per square mile) !!
Population Density (persons/sq. mile)
District of Columbia
(Sources – Statistical Abstract of the United States, 2004-2005, Tables 18 and 1321; Demographia -- Population Density: Selected International Urban Areas and Components )
In kilometre terms Tel Aviv at 7,221 people per square kilometre is more densely populated than the Gaza Strip at only 3,900 people per s.k.
Even London, where the lie of Gaza being the most densely populated area on earth emanates, has far more people with 5,100 per square kilometre.
Clearly Gaza is not close to being the most densely populated area. These figures prove the media lie.
Please send these statistics to your local and national media and demand that they observe fair and truthful reporting.
