Here's a riddle.
According to the CIA World Factbook (2009), life expectancy in Lebanon is 73.66. Egypt's is 71.12. Turkey's is 71.96. Iran's is 71.14. Pakistan's is 64.49.
What is life expectancy in the West Bank and Gaza?

A truly excellent piece by Jonathan Hoffman more or less on this very topic:
Goldsmiths, Gaza and the Warsaw Ghetto
Regarding the exact point at issue, Jonathan Hoffman informs us that life expectancy for a woman in the Warsaw Ghetto was "3 years at most" compared to 75 for a Palestinian woman today in Gaza (Source: UN).
