    "Children" - ie minors - make up nearly two-thirds of the Palestinians. Children casualties are 20%. If the IDF was aiming at random the ratio should be 66%," says Danny, with blinding logic and a razor-sharp calculator. Hahahahaha! And, of course, provided the Palestinian parents weren't trying to keep their kiddies out of the way of IDF soldiers.... It's simple, Danny - that they make up 66% of the population does not mean that they provide 66% of the available targets for the IDF to shoot at. They don't, Danny, because they would be the first people led away to safety at the sight of an IDF patrol. Except, of course, YOU probably think every Palestinian militant walks around holding a Pal kiddie in front of him, just hoping the IDF puts a bullet thru the kid and he can claim a cheap propaganda point. Go on, admit it - that's how you think, isn't it?
