    Hi, I am curious as to where these "over 4,000" figures come from. I quote from Btselem, which I assume we can agree is not some Zionist-facist-pro-settler-racist mouthpiece. Since the beginning of the current Intifada, nearly five years not four, the number of Palestinians killed by the IDF is 3179 inside the occupied territories and 56 inside Israel, number of Palestinians killed by Israeli civilians is 35 all in the territories. For comparison, 218 Israeli civilians were killed by Palestinians in the territories and 439 in Israel, 220 IDF killed in the territories and 83 inside presumably due to suicide bombings. Foreign citizens killed by Palestinians 42, by the IDF 10. 263 Palestinians killed by Palestinians, 112 of those for "suspected collaboration". Number of Palestinian minors killed 644 in the territories, number in Israel 1. Number of Israeli minors killed 113, with 79 inside Israel. As Mr Frantzen so kindly told me if you can't get your facts right, you deserve to get ridiculed. More on the topic, I believe Israel should formally talk to Hamas as they represent a large part of the Palestinian population and delegitimising them was part of the failure of Oslo. I have no problem talking to PAST terrorists as long as they aren't current ones.
