Lets use this yahoo AP swill as the raw data so far.
315 dead (at least 51 civilians)
Q. How many non-civilians were killed?
A. More than zero and less than 264. Interesting that they did not cite the number of confirmed non-civilians….maybe because that number is closer to zero….maybe they have no clue who they are killing.
Q. Given every person who was wounded or killed in the attack has 10 close friends or family, how many people now have sworn to oppose Israel for the rest of their lives?
A. 17,150 people. Looks like this conflict won’t have a “bitter end” anytime soon….could there be an Israeli military-financial-media-complex at work? Perhaps they make money from death and fear too, familiar story, eh? Keep this money maker going, eh?!?
Q: Most importantly, when the Israelis first attacked, how many people had Hamas rockets killed?
A: So far it seems like zero. Therefore, the ratio of those to kill in retaliation is infinity. Maybe there were some killed or at least injured, because that is the ratio I want to find. UILA UPDATE: There was 1 Israeli killed by Hamas rockets. So we are looking at a 315 to 1 ratio. By this math, a genocidal kill number of 50,000 Palestinians would only require 159 Israeli deaths.
Of course, war hawk pundits would say I have crossed the line and start accusing me of antisemitism. Far from it. I am simply trying to apply reason to the cycle of violence. I say the same about US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
War hawk pundits also like to repeat the he said she said lines about recognizing Israel, the right to exist, the whole thing about wiping off the map. Funny how they don’t really vary from those same cherry-picked quotes to get into the meat of the matter….which is stacking up the bodies and seeing who made the highest pile.
Extra credit: I want to see how many the Israelis have killed in the last 10-20 years and stack that up against all the terrorist groups combined have done against Israel. …it must be out there somewhere…
