1.  Palestine info
Palestine is a name which has been widely used since Roman times to refer to the region that includes contemporary Israel and the Palestinian territories, parts of Jordan, and parts of Lebanon and Syria. In its narrow meaning, it refers to the area within the boundaries of the former British Mandate of Palestine (1920-1948) west of the Jordan River.


2.Demography in Israel/Palestine: Trends, Prospects, Policy Implication   [By Sergio Dellapergola]
Population variables and processes are intimately and crucially related to the past, present and future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This paper reviews some of the main demographic trends among Jews and Arabs in Israel and Palestine, presents some new
population projections covering the period 2000-2050, and discusses some possible policy implications of the emerging demographic scenarios.


3. Palestinian Christian
The Palestinian Christians are Palestinians who follow Christianity. In both the local dialect of Palestinian Arabic and in classical or modern standard Arabic, Christians are called Nasrani (a derivative of the Arabic word for Nazareth, al-Nasira) or Masihi (from the same root as the Hebrew word for Messiah). Aggregate figures on the number of Palestinian Christians today are estimates, due to the difficulty in collecting comprehensive information on the different Diaspora populations.
