  1. A sensible thought

  2. Let’s see the intensity of the Israeli offensive. 1000 deaths / 20 days / 1.5 million people ~33 deaths/people*million. Compare to Syria, 1200 days*22million people *33 = 871 thousand people vs. ~200.000. And the Patriotic War: ~105 million (~mean) * ~1400days * ~33 =~5 million vs. >~20 million.

  3. I made a mistake. I just computed the Russian losses, not the Soviet losses. The soviet population was ~ 200 million. So, it should be ~10million vs. ~20 million

  4. de Franca: Oh well then, it’s okay to kill civilians as long as you do it at a civilized rate.

  5. Huh?

  6. To make it clear. What I meant it is that the violence of Israel is just slightly less savage than of the nazists in the eastern front.

  7. Well yeah, anyone who says Israel must not be targeting civilians because it hasn’t killed as many people as in x conflict is a retard. Even Bashar and Hitler didn’t kill all their victims in a single day.

  8. “To make it clear. What I meant it is that the violence of Israel is just slightly less savage than of the nazists in the eastern front.”

    According to Ted Rall, if someone was targeting civilians in the US the way that Israel has done in Gaza through last Friday, there would be 105,000 dead, 26,400 of them children, all of them in about a period of 3 weeks. This is why you frequently hear that everyone in Gaza knows of someone who has been killed by the IDF. If Israel kept up attacks for 3 years, there would be about 5,200,000 dead, approximately 1,300,000 of them children. And given the additional dead discovered in the rubble and the killings over the weekend, the numbers would be even greater if calculated today.
