800,000 Is A 'Lucky' Number

From story one:

Since 1967, approximately 800,000 olive trees have been uprooted by Israeli forces and settlers in the occupied West Bank, according to a joint report by the Palestinian Authority and the Applied Research Institute Jerusalem.

From story two:

Prisoners Day is marked every year in solidarity with the more than 6,000 Palestinians in Israeli jails. ‘We will not leave our prisoners in jail alone,’ rally organiser Abdullah Abu Rahma said.  ‘We will defend their right to be released, because the majority of them have been arrested illegally by Israeli forces.’  With Israel having arrested some 800,000 Palestinians in the occupied territories since 1967 – equivalent to 40 percent of the male population – almost every Palestinian family has been affected.

Either they are making things up, or they are fixated on the number 800,000 or they can't count.

P.S.  Or they can't tell the difference between humans and trees?

DG sent me this observation:

"Rough calculation, that's 40 a day, every day for 50 years. Does anyone realize how patently absurd the charge is?"
