469. Do I Hear a Higher Bid?

I have learned that

A Palestinian expert [Dr. Hanna Issa] in international law has revealed that the number of Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank is now 469, of which 29 are in Jerusalem. The settlements outside the Holy City house more than 500,000 Jewish settlers...

Issa seems to be the

General Secretary of the Islamic-Christian Committee for Protecting Jerusalem and the Holy Sites

And has made other pronouncements of an inciteable character.  He also paid a shiva call on the Hirsch family.

But 469?!

The Yesha Council claims 153.

Peace Now claims "117 official settlements, as well as over 100 settlements outposts."

Where'd he learn arithmetic?
