    This is great information, and a lot of work must have gone into collecting it. I definitely be including it is some of my articles, such as highlighting the effectiveness of the preaching work, and why saying only JW's will be saved is ludicrous.

    Maybe that's why the 1914 generation prophesy failed, so they could be given more time to give a witness in those countries.

    They left out the Land of OZ- where WT dreams become the troof!

    Thanks to all for the comments. It was hard work researching it all, but I think it was worth it. I can see now why the Society gloss over the "30 Other Lands" statistic almost as a footnote, not to mention why they don't bother citing the combined population for these 30 lands - it would be way too depressing for them.

    jwfacts - I would be delighted if you could use this material on your website. Let me know if you need anything else from me. I quoted from one of your articles and provided a link encouraging people to read for themselves. Just a small token of my appreciation for you posting our survey link so prominently on your website! Thank you!

    Indonesia must be included as should Thailand and Malaysia, great illustration and research BTW Ceders

    No all those countries are listed jookbeard.

    It's interesting that all the banned countries are clustered just north of the equator, I guess just mainly a function of their being Muslim + China. It always amazes me that Pakistan is listed despite being one of the most radical Muslim countries around.

    Hey Moshe !

    What have you got against the land of OZ ?

    Some say it`s the lucky country !

    We`ve got Ju..liar Gillard as our PM

  • smiddy


    I`ve only had a breif look at this so I may be off the mark,but could pakistan and russia be included in your list ?


  • cedars

    Smiddy - Pakistan and Russia are both listed in the worldwide report, as strange as that may seem!
