    How could that be? According to just about everyone (except the Israelis, of course), there was "massive" and "wanton" destruction throughout the strip. The propaganda says Gaza is the "most densely populated" area in the world (btw, it ain't) and one would think that with the "massive" destruction that thousands and thousands of people were rendered homeless. But 971? Crikey, that's about one homeless Palestinian for every 15 rockets fired by Palestinians at Israeli civilians. Surely HRW got their numbers wrong. Maybe the left a couple of zeros off by clerical error? It's simply hard to stomach reports from HRW now that we know their anti-Israel obsession, and after their own founder abandoned them due to their vicious anti-human rights stances.
