    That should make the other 53% feel better.

    In the article there is a claim by a group in Gaza that 89% of those killed were civilians.

    Okay, since I have both posted the rules at the top of the forum and gave you a message yesterday in one of your posts about putting quoted material in quote tags, or the whole thing within quotes, next time I am going to lock the thread or either delete it.

    Don't know what else to do to get your attention.

    Perhaps 77% of them, were either human shields, urged to go or stay in an area where Israel was targeting, or were urged to go to a UN school, a hospital, or a mosque, where rockets, weapons, and ammunition were stored.

    There are always going to be collateral deaths of civilians when military actions occur in urban areas. With Hamas involved, they design the civilian deaths and casualties that way, for propaganda purposes.

    Besides, their claimed religion loves death, according to them.

    Jolly fine bunch of guys and gals, those Hamas types.

    Maybe Hamas should stop sacrificing their own.

    That appears to be a group of what you'll find in the United States, actually.

    Yes ...... and a pretty good representation of what will be found in Gaza ....... animals. Actually, Gaza is probably worse.

    I'm surprised this demonstration took place and there were no DC cops around.

    If they did not want to risk the lives of their civilians they should not hide weapons in and around schools. The US state department is appalled that Israel is shooting at places they suspect have weapons stored

    If they didn't hide in amongst the fine ciitzens of Gaza, it would then be akin to shooting fish in a barrel.

    Well, it might have gone something like this clip from "Full Metal Jacket".

    I think I saw someone say it before, but 1.81 million people in 139 square miles and, in a month-long military campaign, 1,831 people, apparently half of which are combatants, have died.

    Either the Israeli military is extremely careful to avoid collateral damage deaths or is horribly bad at engaging in massacres.

    I'm going with the former.

    I'm not sure how you would use a death-per-capita as the metric here, but I guess whatever fits the narrative.

    If Hamas loved their kids and women more than they hated Jews, then maybe so many would not die.

    To Israel, 53% is Nobel Peace Prize worthy.
