The Zionist Conspiracy
Friday, July 23, 2004
This morning, Fatah terrorists in Gaza killed a 15 year old Palestinian. Apparently the teen and his family members had asked the terrorists to stop using their home as a launching site for rockets fired at Israelis.
The New York Times has a decent piece about the matter, until the end of the article, when it states:
The latest death, according to Agence France Press, brings to 4,189 the number of people killed since the start of the intifada in September 2000. The toll includes 3,192 Palestinians and 926 Israelis.
Anyone who looks at the death toll will assume that more than three times the number of Palestinians have been killed by Israel than Israelis killed by Palestinians. Putting aside that most of the Palestinian dead are terrorists such as those who killed the Arab teen this morning, the reality is that a significant number of Palestinians have either been killed by other Palestinians, or have killed themselves (and usually innocent Israelis) in suicide bombings.
