That's a rather puerile response. Sarcasm is generally the first resort of the desperate mind.

The lack of specific information that you are able to provide contradicting the figures that I quoted and your assertion that you have expert knowledge that you are somehow unwilling to share with us hardly inspires confidence. Sarcasm alone doesn't really cut it with most of us no matter how successful you might normally find it as a tactic when confronted by a smart 10 year old.

There are plenty of other sources of information that I can cite that somewhat undermine your assertions but presumably any evidence that conflicts with your personal prejudices is, by definition, a falsehood. Why not try providing some stats of your own? Presuming, of course, that you are actually capable of doing so. If you are not alone in your views then presumably you could ask someone to help you? If you have no friends I am sure that somebody might help for a small sum of money! Maybe Harrak could assist you?

All the census information that I have encountered indicates that the rate of Jewish immigration in percentage terms did not accelerate, but actually fractionally decelerated, after the British withdrawal from Palestine. The numbers obviously increased in unit terms but the actual rate of population growth in percentage terms stayed on pretty much the same curve as it had been prior to 1948. It also indicates that the demographic balance between the Jewish and Arab populations in Israel stayed, more or less, the same. These are facts from far more credible sources than your imagination.

If you have links to authoritative, contradictory, articles on the Internet that you can refer to that have greater credibility then I would love to hear more about them. But I would respectfully suggest that if you are unable to stick to a given subject, can only refute a point by asserting that you are right because you 'know more' about the subject (despite a singular inability to demonstrate this fact), and can only use sarcasm as a rebuttal, then you are unlikely to get anywhere. The regularity with which this happens to you is probably a source of great frustration to you. I feel for you.

I repeat, if you can provide some specific information that supports your view and discredits my observations in ways that that I find impossible to repudiate then I would welcome it.

If you don't like the original link there are plenty more where that came from.
