    Carlo Strengeroverlooks the fact that Israel, in recent years, has killed farmore civilians than any other nation or group on earth. This includes Americas excesses in Afghanistan anf Iraq over the past three years. Israel killed over 1000 Lebaese civilians in the 2006 war and over 500 civilians in the Gaza op. This is the mostimportant fact of mideastern current events. To ignore this fact, as Strenger, Israel, and America are doing means that they will never get it right. They will not be able to formulate an accurate analysis because their view is biased. Ahmadinejads "holocaust denial" is trivial and unimportant compared to Israels continuing justification of their slaughter of civilians.
