As for the total numbers being low.I have put at the top of the post the date when those figures were calculated. 2003. Take another look.That accounts for the disparity. "Yet I have never found anything loose about what BT`selem has had to say or report." I have posted to you several examples of so called civilian palestinian casualties.They are not civilian, as can be seen by the events described. Also when you quote the TOTAL number of civilian or overall casualties for the Palestinians they do include palestinians killed in inter faction fighting. And works accidents like the Jabalaya hamas debacle when they blew up 20 or so palestinians in their parade.Israel is blamed directly for their own massacres! The problem with B'tselem is they rely too heavily on palestinian spokespersons.Remember they are the ones who said Israel killed over 500 in Jenin before eventually admitting the number was 56!!! Be sceptical Dutch.
