    A lot of organisations are counting the Muslim deaths in Iraq, in Palestine, in Lebanon. In 1982, what all observers, even in conservative quarters of Israel?s establishment, admit was a war of choice initiated without any provocation from the PLO, 19,000 Lebanese and Palestinians were killed in a massive invasion of that country. They were counted, they were mostly Muslim, they were innocent, and hardly a murmur of criticism issued from North America. Indeed, it was Israeli outrage at the massacres in refugee camps which brought the campaign?s most brutal strategies to a halt. Hezbollah grew out of those ruins. You evidently no nothing of the history of the area, for no one with a minimal grasp on the history could say present-day Palestine is a cesspool of its own making. The West Bank had very good levels of education down to 1967, equivalent to what Israel boasted of. The infrastructure of growth was, and has been continually devastated by Israel?s aggressive policies of expulsion, economic strangulation and military destruction. Ask any American who has invested there.
