Anyone got a similar stat for the Palestinians? ;)
2002-06-24 02:36:21 PM  
And how many palestinians have been killed by the Israeli army in the past six months?

I just think there is no "good guy" in this scenario.
2002-06-24 02:37:12 PM  
Since Palestinians aren't really people they don't take statistics on them.

That is scary. You'd think the Israeli leadership would do something like, I don't know...let Palestinians have their own damn state?

They have virtually no weapons and their teenagers are blowing themselves (and you) up. Isreal, you are in the wrong here and without America backing you up, you're done for.

Farkeater, that outta get things rolling.
2002-06-24 02:38:18 PM  
The ratio of Palestinians killed by Israeli terrorists must be even higher!
2002-06-24 02:39:30 PM  
I think the american government should make both sides equal and let the government destroy each other, and if 1 side begins to gain power, power up the other side.

1 in every 98,000 Americans was killed by one of the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001

If you went to a NFL football game last fall and looked around, and say, the game was sold out, you would see about 100,000 other fans. If you were living in America, it is likely that one of you would be killed in a terrorist attack the next month.
2002-06-24 02:39:36 PM  
That's not good enough! It needs to be much higher, maybe 1 in 6, on both sides. Then it'll be much easier to achieve peace when there's none left.

The only solution: nuke the entire middle east.
2002-06-24 02:40:34 PM  
eh? *pulls out popcorn*
2002-06-24 02:40:44 PM  
1 in every 5 Palestinians have been repressed or at least looked at in a rather mean way.
2002-06-24 02:40:56 PM  
Yeah, but what about the robots?

"The same ratio applied to the population of the United States would equate to 10,888 American citizens. That's more than three times the number of people killed in the September 11 attacks against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and aboard United Airlines Flight 93."

I fear that before this "war" is declared "over", at least that many Americans will be killed.
2002-06-24 02:41:23 PM  
Oh thank God. I was afraid we weren't going to make the flame bait quota today.
2002-06-24 02:41:31 PM  
Lots of Nazis on the board today.
2002-06-24 02:41:34 PM  
Leave both sides to their own devices. Eff 'em.

I like Tabian's idea. The entertainment potential is excellent.
2002-06-24 02:41:41 PM  
Sure, but how many Palestinians have died when their Islam-mandated explosive belts have accidentally detonated? Coincidentally, this always seems to happen in Isreal... Isreal must have some horrible device which makes them explode, thereby killing innocent Palestinians!
2002-06-24 02:42:14 PM  
Guns don't kill people. People wearing bombs kill people.

It's true.

Over there anyways.

I thought CNN was the "liberal" media.

Well, Israel threatened to kick CNN and the BBC out of Israel for their anti-Israel stance (read: their choice not to pay lip-service to Israel propaganda). They threatened to remove their accreditation that would allow them to go through the satellite broadcasting on Israel. They also wanted to put the Fox Network on it, because they felt that their deep pro-Israel stance would counterbalance.
So, they arrived at a compromise: Israel would not kick CNN out, but they have to do 5 (five) programs on Israeli victims.

And yes, I'd like to know what proportion that would make for Palestinian victims.

Better than the hits to runs ratio for the Devil Rays, though..

". . .and said she believes there is no God, because God would not have taken her most precious things."

Ain't that the truth.

Guns don't kill people. I do.

How many tanks of gas in a bulldozer to clear land for illegal Israeli settlements subsidized by the American taxpayer?
2002-06-24 02:44:30 PM  
"The only solution: nuke the entire middle east."

Oh please please please please please....

Supposedly the major hurdle to the Clinton peace plan was "right of return"- the Palestinians insisted on it, Israelis said it was off the table. Negotiations break down, cue the Intifada and increased # of suicide bombings. And yet they STILL insist on right of return, even though their own actions have eliminated it as a realistic action.

<obligatory troll> Not nearly enough. </obligatory troll>

nobody wants stats on the palestinians because if they don't care about their lives, and the lives of their children...why should we???
2002-06-24 02:48:16 PM  
Larry miller wrote a nice piece about this problem for the Weekly Standard not to long ago.
2002-06-24 02:48:16 PM  
". . .and said she believes there is no God, because God would not have taken her most precious things."

The terrorists have already won.

This week on Survivor: Middle East...

Who's getting voted out next? Palestine? Israel? Or little old Bahrain, sitting all smug in the Persian Gulf like!

Tune into CBS Thursdays.

Ironbar CNN - Run by Mr. Ted "I drew swastikas all over my school" Turner.

He's a freak... a rich freak...

But it's good to know that CNN is losing it's ratings. One of these days they may actually have to tell a story completely unbiased.
