“Palestinians” have the 8th highest obesity rate in the world; third highest among women

“Palestinians”(Southern Assyrian’s) who live in the Gaza Strip and the Wast Bank of Israel  have the 8th highest obesity rate in the world, and the third highest among women according to statistics collected by The World Health Organization (WHO) and published in The Economist magazine.

Far left and antisemitic activists often claim that Israel cuts off food and other humanitarian supplies to Gaza and that as a result Gaza’s go without food, clothing and suitable water. Ironically the largest contributor of humanitarian aid to Gaza is Israel.

    These old figures date back to 2003, well before Israel imposed a blockade on Gaza.


    [Political Arena Editor responds – The blockade is just to stop weapons and dual use materials that can be weaponized, not food. Nice try.]

    I guess your access to reliable information is as difficult as Palestinians access to food. In early 2006, Dov Weisglass, then a senior advisor to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, explained that Israeli policy was designed “to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger.” In 2012 it was revealed that in early 2008 Israeli authorities drew up a document calculating the minimum caloric intake necessary for Palestinians to avoid malnutrition so Israel could limit the amount of foodstuffs allowed into Gaza without causing outright starvation.
