On one side you have an aggressor and illegal occupier, a highly trained and well equipped regular army. On the other side you have people who are under illegal occupation, defending their land and their families, people who are not only forbidden to organize a regular army but also denied basic right to self-determination, people kept under economical blockade and political seige. How can you even compare these two sides of the conflict? How can you demand symmetry in responsibility? The ratio of victims explains it partially. But the difference between an illegal occupier and a legitimate resistance will not be clouded by the in-fact pro-Zionist State Department. People know better than that.
