Density on Gaza Population, Again


If you keep repeating a lie enough, it becomes the accepted wisdom, or so the saying goes. Unfortunately, though, the same can't be said about the truth. CAMERA has spread the word that Gaza is NOT the most densely populated area in the world here, here, here, here, and here, to name just a few. We have also managed to get the falsehood corrected at the San Diego Union-Tribune and Reuters.

But that hasn't stopped Alex Fishman from writing in that the Gaza Strip is "the most densely populated area in the world."
