I saw the press conference with the United Nations officials from Gaza on C-SPAN last night. The actual numbers they mentioned were 67 WOMEN AND CHILDREN. NOT 60 as you claim. That DOES NOT mean that the rest of the dead (who are males) are all non-civilians.

The UN explained that they are not implying that the men who were killed were ALL 'Hamas militants', they're just saying that they haven't had time to divide the ADULT MALE deaths to civilian and non-civilian categories.


I sure hope you made that error by mistake, not deliberately in an attempt to make light of the death toll.

This is horrific. I picture a man, in public, beating one of his neighbor's children.

The cameras come, other neighbors watch, yet no one does anything about it. Not even the man's benefactor who pays so many of the man's bills. It is assumed that the man has the right to beat the child. "What right," other people ask? You have no right to ask the question, 'what right.'"

I am a supporter of Israel who is disgusted by the Israelis' actions. Tzipi Livni scares the living shit out of me.

FROM TEH NUTROOTS:

I don't understand you Alex. I am certainly not "making light" of the civilian deaths. I am shocked and angry. I got the figure of 60 from The New York Times.

I agree with you, Serge.
