Palestine is not on the map. Palestinians now make only about 1.4million of the population in what is now called Israel (www.ynet.co.il...). Their numbers along with their land are getting smaller. Yet propaganda has led many to believe otherwise.
The population of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip has passed 1.4 million people, an increase of nearly 40 percent over the past 10 years, an official Palestinian census published Sunday said.
The census found that as of 2007 the population of the territory had reached 1,416,543 compared to 1,022,207 in 1997, with an estimated annual growth rate of 3.3 percent.
Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) said that Population in the Palestinian Territory increased by 39% during the period 1997-2006.
PCBS said that the Palestinian population reached 3.9 million in mid year 2006, of which 46% are less than 15 years.Source, 2006

It's propaganda either by them so they seem to have more people, or propaganda by groups who use the information to portray them in a negative light. But either way it is based on lies.
The population of the Palestinian Territory is estimated to be 4.02 million at the mid 2007, with 2.52 million in the West Bank and 1.50 million in Gaza Strip. The estimated population of the Palestinian Territory by mid 2010 is 4.4 million, with 2.7 million in the West Bank and 1.7 million in Gaza Strip.
Refugees make up about half of the Palestinians in the Diaspora and are also represented in the Palestinian Territory. Based on UNRWA records for the end of 2006, the number of Palestinian refugees in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, West Bank and Gaza total 4.5 million, many of whom live in 59 camps, distributed as follows: 10 camps in Jordan, 10 camps in Syria, 12 camps in Lebanon, 19 camps in the West Bank and 8 camps in the Gaza Strip.
The data base shows that 44.6% of the
population in the Palestinian Territory are refugees. They are estimated to be 1.8 million.......780,000 31.0% are in the West Bank and more than one
million 67.6% are in Gaza Strip.

The 2004 Palestinian-Arab population was closer to 2.4 million than to the 3.8 million reported by Palestinian Authority (PA) officials.....
...the PA numbers are based on Palestine Bureau of Statistics (PBS) 1997 projections, not on actual population counts....
.....There were dramatically fewer births and lower fertility rates, and instead of immigration, the West Bank and Gaza experienced a steady net emigration.....
in 1948, approximately 750,000 Palestinians (almost half of the Palestinian population) were forced to leave their homes....
...in 1967, another 325,000 Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza Strip were forced to flee their homes, many for the second time. A systematic policy of deportation and forced migration continued for several years after the war with an annual average of 21,000 Palestinians leaving the occupied Palestinian territories, prevented from returning.
