Population Growth Rate: Israel, Gaza, the West Bank and Refugee Camps

Source: The Economist
There are as many Arabs in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank as there are Jews in Israel and the West Bank. There are an additional 2.9 million Palestinian refugees outside of the region. The Arab birth rate is higher than that of the Jews. 

This article suggests that the majority of the Knesset and a majority of Netanyahu's new cabinet believe in a one state solution with all of what are now Israel, Gaza and the West Bank part of an enlarged state of Israel.

There seems to be a disconnect.
