    In case ya missed it..............

    Someone posted:"The infant mortality rate in British Mandate Palestine in 1943-44, the last year for which such data are available, was almost 10 percent for Muslims, 3.5 percent for Jews, and 7 percent for Christians. There were three times as many infant deaths among Muslims, and twice as many among Christians, as there were among Jews.

    In Israel 2001 all the mortality rates were dramatically lower of course, but no less important, gaps between Jews and Arabs have also shrunk. The infant mortality rate among Jews was 0.14 percent, among Muslims 0.82 percent, and among Christians 0.2 percent. The gap between Jews and Muslims had dropped by a third and the gap between Jews and Christians was reversed. "

    To which you relied:"The facts are very clear from this guy's figures. Infant mortality in 1944 among Arab children in Israel was 3 times worse than jews - now it's 6 times worse. Maybe his audience is arithmetically incompetent or just devotedly suggestable."

    So, I asked you:

    Fallguy, fallguy, fallguy.

    Here's a simple question for you.

    You are an Arab. You're married. She's pregnant. Now.....in which ME country would you have her give birth - simply on the likelihood of your child surviving???

    To help you work it out, here's a table

    (Geez....those f#$#ing Jews are sneaky arent they???)

    Gaza Strip 24.7
    Iraq 57.6
    Kuwait 10.8
    Lebanon 27.4
    Libya 27.9

    Your statistical arguement has so many holes in it I dont know where to start.

    Suffice to say, if the ragheads had been left to their own devices in the Palestinian region, rest assured their present IMR would be similar to the Libya, Lebanon
    Iran etc.....figures.

    And not between 7-8 as they are now if they're lucky enough to live in Israel.

    Sneaky F#$%ing Jews again.....
