"tally every Israeli that was killed by the Palestinians and every Palestinian that was killed by the Israelis. The numbers will tell it all. No further words will be necessary. The figures will speak for themselves." Try the same with American and Japanese casualties in WW2 and it will be easy to make the figures say that the US was the cruel genocidal agressor while Japan was the passive, innocent victim. Instead of comparing just the total figures, what would the results be, say, if one would compare the number of real non-combatants killed on both sides? Compare, for instance, the number of Palestinian and Israeli women and children (under 14, not under 18) killed in the conflict, and the figures will speak for themselves, yes, but something entirely different. And please, don't forget to compare also the number of Palestinians killed by Palestinians with that of Israelis killed by Israelis. Then one will have some idea of what's different about both societies.
