1. Civilian vs. Military Casualties
Doug ,   Rochester, USA   (11.22.12)
Ao about 55% of the Pals killed by Israel were civilians. About 67% of the Israelis killed by the Pals were civlians. These percentages are more or less the same. And the Pals only aim at civilians. And the Israelis only aim at militants. And the Isrealis have the best precision weaponry that U.S. tax dollar can buy. Something is not adding up here. Sounds like Israeli is trying to speak hasbara, instead of truth.
2. To Doug
Michael ,   Montreal   (11.22.12)
Wow Doug what impeccable logic. I mean that ratio of combatants vs civilians killed has nothing to do with the fact that Hammas launches is it's rockets from densely populated residential areas, right? Should Israel not go after the rockets and just let them rain down? Furthermore do you honestly think that if Israel, an army with nuclear capability was trying to kill civilians the death toll would just be 50? Israel can wipe Gaza and its entire population of the map in a matter of seconds. You have made one good point though, America should keep some of those tax dollars, from the looks of its educational system the money is sorely needed.
3. #1 Conspiratoric idiot

According to palestinian numbers about 50 civilians were killed and 80 militants in Pillar of Defence. Hamas uses civilians as "protection", while Israel puts their civilians in protective shelters. Nowadays, when you lack any arguments you only scream 'Hasbara' at everything.

5. Doug - use a calculator next time
Miche Norman ,   Hod Hasharon   (11.22.12)
173 people died in the war on the Palestinina side and 6 on the Palestinian side - allowing for the fact that 6 of the Palestinians were murdered in cold blood by Hammas - that means Hammas killed 2 soldiers and 10 civilians - meaning civilians were 83.3% of the casulaties caused by Hammas. On the Palestinian side, 167 were killed by Israeli military action of which 110 were military and 57 civilians (if of course you discount the Syrian girl who was wounded in Damascus and the Israeli girl who was wounded in Kiryat Malachi who they claim as Palestinians. Meaning 34.1% of Palestinian casualties were civilians. This was even though Israel did its utmost to prevent civilian casualties on both sides by investing heavily in accurate munitions, anti-missile defenses and buiilding codes and Hammas thought that placing rocket stores in residential buildings would have the desired effect.
