More statistics


Padraig,

Here are some more statistics for you. Please note that the Palestinian numbers include suicide bombers and collaborators. It seems that if you are a young Palestinian male you are in a very dangerous category even if you are a non-combatant. Otherwise the risk is low. Israelis of any age or sex are almost equally likely to be hit. Do all these numbers mean anything? I don't know - obviously dead is dead no matter how it happened. The Allies killed much more Germans than they lost - that's how wars are often won. You could hardly claim from any numbers that the Israeli's are winning. Both sides seem locked in an endless downward spiral.
