Israelis 1013, Palestinians 13
As of yesterday the score (if that's not too trite a word to use) was that the Israelis had killed 1,013 people and the Palestinians 13.
And it gets worse: one third of those killed on the Palestinian side are reported to be children. Of the Israelis three civilians and one soldier have been killed by from rockets fired from Gaza and nine soldiers killed in the fighting in Gaza.
Disproportionate? I think so. It makes me very angry actually.
Meanwhile my government and others all sound concerned but as completely ineffective are stopping it. All we can do is boycott Israeli goods when doing our shopping, but I don't imagine the capsicum farmers of Israel will notice somehow.
