My intensions for this thread are only to dispel the popular belief (misconception)that the Palestinians are the only terrorists in this conflict.
This has nothing to do with Judaism or the Jewish people, but rather a group of people who are intent on carrying out their agenda of genocide, under
the guise of helping an oppressed ethnic group. It is my belief that Judaism is used as the vehicle for this agenda because it is easy to manipulate
the western world into supporting their efforts, due to religion and the history of oppression against the Jews.
No matter which side of the fence you are on, you can't really deny or ignore these numbers. Statistics are good because it's a little harder to put
"spin" on the numbers in a effective manner. When the truth is clouded by propaganda, the best thing you can do is look at the numbers and go from
there. It's called denying ignorance.
We begin below:
“The majority of these [Palestinian] children were killed and injured while going about normal daily activities, such as going to school, playing,
shopping, or simply being in their homes. Sixty-four percent of children killed during the first six months of 2003 died as a result of Israeli air
and ground attacks, or from indiscriminate fire from Israeli soldiers.” --Catherine Cook
From September 29, 2000, when the current Palestinian intifada erupted, through January 18, 2008, at least 1446 Palestinian and 124 Israeli
youths under the age of 18 were killed in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. Thousands more have been injured, many permanently.
Remember These Children
lists each of these 1570 deaths. Arranged chronologically by date of death, each entry includes the child’s
name, hometown, how the child was killed and, where available, the nature of the fatal injury. The
, though painful, conveys the personal reality of these terrible
statistics. The waste of human life—of hope and future promise—is almost too great to contemplate.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Children Deaths by Year:
Israelis and Palestinians Killed in the Current Violence:
American news reports repeatedly describe Israeli military attacks against the Palestinian population as “retaliation.” However, when one looks
into the chronology of death in this conflict, the reality turns out to be quite different.
1,072 Israelis and at least 6,348 Palestinians have been killed since September 29, 2000.
The number of Palestinian deaths is almost certainly an underestimate as it does not include the most recent deaths in the West Bank.
B'Tselem, The Israeli Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories
reports that 4,908 Palestinians were
killed by Israelis and 1,062 Israelis were killed by Palestinians between September 29, 2000 and December 26, 2008. (Visit their
.) The UN Office for
the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
reports that at least 1,440 Palestinians were killed during the Israel’s assault on the Gaza strip,
between December 27, 2008 and February 5, 2009. The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports that
were killed by Palestinians between December 27, 2008 and January 18, 2009, and
was killed on January 27,
According to B'Tselem, deaths between September 29, 2000 and December 26, 2008:
Palestinians Killed: 4,908
Israelis Killed: 1.062
According to UN OCHA, deaths between 27, 2008 and February 5, 2009:
Palestinians Killed: 1,440
Israelis Killed: 10
Total deaths between Sep 29, 2000 and Feb 5, 2009:
Palestinains Killed: 6,348
Israelis Killed: 1,072
The numbers cited above include civilians and combatants killed by members of the opposing nationality (and therefore, do not include Palestinians
killed by an explosive device that they set or was on their person, Israelis killed in 'friendly fire' incidents, etc.). The numbers also do not
include the sizable number of Palestinians who died as a result of
inability to reach medical care
due to Israeli road closures, curfews, the Israeli closure of border crossing from Gaza, etc.
The figure for Palestinian deaths is extremely conservative, since it is difficult for B'Tselem to report on deaths in the Palestinian territories.
The Palestine Red Crescent Society
, internationally respected for its statistical rigor, reports significantly
higher numbers of Palestinian deaths. We do not doubt the reliability of their data, and only use B'Tselem's more conservative numbers because they
collect data on both populations.
In the past we used the statistics provided by Israel’s military
for the number of Israelis killed, but they have not
updated their statistics page
since early in 2006. In addition, there is reason to
believe that their numbers may have been somewhat inflated.
