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.
* 54% of the Palestinian fatalities were combattants, mostly armed men.
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".
