Arabs' slaves have worsened in Palestine with Jewish population growth - REALLY?
If you’re thinking that Arabs’ lives have worsened in Palestine with Jewish population growth, this Blog is for you.
Let’s first look at the population growth in Palestine for both the Jews and the Arabs. Between WW1 and WW2, the non-Jewish population increased by 588,000 while the Jewish population rose by 470,000. The Arab population growth resulted primarily from their immigration into the area (app. 37%) to take advantage of the higher standard of living the Jews had made possible. For example, the Muslim infant mortality rate fell from 201 per thousand in 1925 to 94 per thousand in 1945 and life expectancy rose from 37 years in 1926 to 49 in 1943. Arab population increased the most in cities where large Jewish populations had created new economic opportunities. Examples of this was noted in Haifa (+290%), Jaffa (+158%), and Jerusalem (+131%). The growth in Arab towns was more modest. Examples include Jenin (+78%), Nablus (+42%), and Bethlehem (+37%).
So, if Arabs life has worsened in Palestine with the Jewish population growth, why have so many Arabs emigrated to and are still living in the same area with the Jewish people?
