The Mideast Body Count
27 Mar 2002
Modified: 28 Mar 2002
Since Sharon instigated the latest round of violence 1625 human beings have been killed.
Since Ariel Sharon instigated the latest round of violence between Palestinians and Israelis 18 months ago, 1625 human being have been killed-- 1265 Palestinians and 360 Israelis. About 22,000 more have been injured and 20% of those will never walk again.

As in all modern wars, most of the victims who are targeted and killed on both sides are civilians. That is something war-lovers and war profiteers do not care about.

Last December, the U.S. was the only country on the UN Security Council to vote against the resolution that condemned both Israeli and Palestinian terrorism. That unfortunate vote has only encouraged Sharon and other warmongers to do more killings.

If Arafat, who has had most of his infrastructure destroyed by the brutal Israeli military and who is now a virtual prisoner is to be held responsible for all Palestinian terrorism, we should equally also hold Sharon responsible for all the Israeli terrorism. Certainly, Sharon is in a much stronger position to control the people on his side of the fence.

For the past 40 years, all American presidents have criticized the Israeli right-wing, illegal settlement policy. Despite this fact and despite the fact that Americans politicians has given over $100 billions of our tax dollars to the Israelis, they have continued to thumb their noses at us.

A more balanced and rational foreign aid policy in the Mideast would be welcomed by most of the world, and this would lead to a reduction in hate and terrorism against Americans.

tell the truth you cunt

how did Sharon 'instigate the violence'? Not by killing Palestinians. By visiting a certain place. Well I got news for you. It's all Israeli territory. If the Palestinians want their own State they will have to stop all the suicide bombings. Israel is already a State, so THEY ARE NOT negotiating on equal terms. If you want to play the game, you have to play by the rules.

This situation is not unique. The British made the Israeli State as well as India and Pakistan. Do you support the Pakistani-terror groups operating in Kashmir as well? It is virtually the same situation with the Arab States and the Palestinians.

If good Palestinians truly want peace and they were the majority THAN THEY WOULD BRING A HALT TO THE SUICIDE ATTACKS FROM THEIR SIDE AND NEGOTIATE HONESTLY. The Israeli people have been more than ready to GIVE YOU A STATE FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS, BUT YOU HAVE FORCED THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE WITH HARSH MEANS. The Israeli's captured territory in 1967 after being attacked on all sides. And now the losers of that war are trying to re-write history with lots of help from their American, Marxist college students. I have news for you, there are no occupied territories. When Syria, Jordan and Egypt crossed the borders in 1967 they gave up the right to claim occupied territories and that goes for the Palestinians that live in those places. You cannot erase the fact that the British through the UN mandate created Israel and the others mentioned above. If you want to go through the UN with your Palestinian propaganda then you must play by the rules as I said before. Hence, THERE ARE NO OCCUPIED TERRITORIES. SUCH A THING DOES NOT EXIST IN WHAT IS NOW CALLED ISRAEL.

I'll be checking back to see if I get any responses that don't have Zio-Nazi written in them.
Truth teller satire?

Should this character be taken seriously. “And now the losers of that war are trying to rewrite history with lots of help from their American, Marxist college students.” Sadly, calling distortion and lies truth does not make them truth.

Who gets a lot of help? How about the $3,00,000,000 a year of our taxes to feed the Israeli war machine. History? The 1967 war was started by an attack on Israel. That is a joke. The entire Egyptian air force would not have been destroyed on the ground had they initiated the war--that is common sense.

Also sadly, Zio-Nazi charges are a cheap attempt to kill free speech.
