80% of Israeli fatalities are unarmed civilians, most Palestinian fatalities are armed violent men

The International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism (www.ict.org.il) has published a statistical analysis of Palestinian and Israeli fatalities since Arafat and his thugs refused peace and started to murder unarmed Israeli civilians in October of 2000.

Here are some interesting facts:

* 80% of the Israeli fatalities were non-combattants, unarmed civilians.
* 30% of the Israeli fatalities were women.
* 2% of the Israeli fatalities were killed by Israeli actions, by mistake.
* 30% of the Israeli fatalities were non-combattants over the age of 39.

* 54% of the Palestinian fatalities were combattants, mostly armed men.
* 3% of the Palestinian fatalities were women.
* 14% of the Palestinian fatalities were killed by the Palestinians themselves, for "collaborating" with the enemy.
* 5% of the Palestinian fatalities victims were non-combattants over the age of 39.

Most media outlets will report something like this: "The latest clashes in the Middle East have claimed the lives of 1574 Palestinians and 599 Israelis".

This moral equivalency of mixing up armed Palestinian terrorists, whose goal is to murder unarmed civilians, with Israeli women and kids, whose crime is simply to breathe, is shocking.

I copy below the breakdown of Fatalities from 9/27/2000 through 8/6/2002. For a more detailed statistical analysis of the fatalities, see also "An Engineered Tragedy: Statistical Analysis of Fatalities".
