Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics – Part II

In an article titled “Occupation and resistance: The blood price“, Al-Crapeeza distorts statistics of palestinians and Israelis killed in the current intifada.

Of those killed, 2612 were Palestinians and 822 Israelis, with the remainder made up of foreign nationals.

The Palestinians who died were mainly civilians or demonstrators, but the total includes about 130 bomberswho died carrying out anti-Israeli operations.

Three-quarters of the Israelis killed were officially civilians (though this figure includes an unknown number of soldiers off duty, often termed civilains by the Israelis). Half of them died in the 127 attacks by human bombers carried out inside Israel.

Note how Al-Crapeeza inflates the palestinian number by only mentioning 130 suicide bombers who killed themselves, and not mentioning the other terrorists and combatants killed (numbering over a thousand), nor the hundreds of palestinians killed as a result of their own side’s actions. Furthermore, they downplay the Israeli casualties by mentioning that 25% were not officially civilians, and that many of them were soldiers.

As I have previously posted, this cynical use of the statistics is not new. It is hardly surprising that Al-Crapeeza would employ these tactics to spread its hate against Israel.
