    Palestinian medical sources: 507 now killed in Gaza - CNN.com

    It's a sad fact how many civilians are paying the ultimate price for this war.

    So how much longer is this going to go on for? Israeli Defense says for not a short period of time.

    actually, israel has been pretty careful to avoid civilian casualties. as of this a.m., it was under 20%.

    They're exagerating the numbers just like Arafat taught them to do in order to gain media attention and sympathy from idiots.

    Looks like it worked with the OP. :eusa_whistle:

    And don't get me started with CNN. They've barely reported on any of the rockets landing in Sderdot and any of the other cities in Israel - even when Israeli deaths occured as a result. Christian Amanpour is so biased to her Muslim brothers and sisters and against Israel, it's astounding they even let her on the air. MSNBC has been almost as bad, with getting Hamas spokespeople on the phone to talk about how horrible a situation it is.

    When was the last time a network interviewed a leader of Al Queda to get his loss figures on the air and to garner sympathy? It's so completely stupid - it's amazing. There is NO difference between Hamas and Al Queda. They are both Islamic terrorists that are hell bent on destroying anyone who doesn't believe in their way of life. Muslims included.

    They voted for Hamas, and war was part of that party's platform.

    So..Do you two need to see all the dead bodies for yourselves to make sure they aren't lying?

    The number of civilians dead that I've seen from all sources so far is over 20%.

    At one point, I believe I saw one that was for every 1 in 4.

    WebCite query result

    The UN's Protection of Civilians Weekly Report - 291

    24-31 December 2008

    To quote from the article:

    It's been 4 days since this report came out, so the numbers seem to be right on target.

    again, if Hamas has weapons stores and rocket launchers in and around children, who's fault is it if they get hurt?


    before you answer, read the Geneva Conventions
