    Spouting Israeli propaganda and apologetics just does not cut it. The number of casualties on the Palestinian side id disproportionately large because the population density in Gaza is one of the highest in the world, Israel has used accurate and highly powerful weapons and ,as Dan Halutz once famously said, bombing the Gazans means nothing to him. If Israel had only bombed the supply tunnels and in the process it also killed civilian bystanders it would have been a totally diferent story. But Israel has bombed Gaza city, refugee camps etc. and the Godstone report cites specific such instances which were also corroborated by Israeli soldiers themselves. Numbers tell the story. When the kill ratio is in the order of 1:100 you know something is profoundly wrong. That you choose to ignore it or even condone it is telling as well.
