Interesting Stats

Here are some interesting statistics.

There are approximately 14 million Jews in the world. That's just 0.2% of the world population. Moreover the average age of Jews (36) is 8 years higher than the world average age, so Jews are less likely to experience as much natural population growth as the general world population. (Message to young Jews - adopt non-Jewish children !)

Only 41% of Jews live in Israel.  (Not "just over half" as has been generally reported for a while now.)

27% of the world Muslims live in a country where they are a minority: this as opposed to 13% of Christians and 3% of Hindus. (So how is it that the common trope is that Muslims don't know how to live as a minority, and insists on ruling everywhere they live?)
