How crowded is Gaza?

I'm pretty sure I posted this video when it first came out, but now it's been picked up by Roger Simon and it's worth posting again.

Let's go to the videotape.

I think this video misses the point just slightly. It's not that living in a crowded place breeds terrorism, it's that high population density is just another factor contributing to what is perceived as abject squalor, poverty and misery. The point is, people like space, and Gazans don't have it.
Part of the point of making the population density statement is that it implies that not only do Gazans have no choice to attack from populated areas when they attack, but that any retalitation against them will likley affect civilians.
I don't think the point is really that population density leads to terrorism.

Have you seen this article regarding The Overcrowding Myth?

Hong Hong is far more crowded than Gaza and its not a terrorist hellhole. Gaza's backwardness is a matter of the policy choices of its Hamas' rulers - and which explains why a lot of Gaza Arabs would leave if they could.
