    Israelis have been able to intercept many of the missiles and there is enough time for most Israelis to move to bomb shelters before the missiles hit. If that hadn't happened, the number of innocent people killed in Israel would be as high if not higher than Gaza.

    20 were killed in Gaza this morning and a bomb blew up in Israel injuring 22. Israel was lucky that the bomb didn't kill those people. It's not that the Palestinians are just sitting by innocently, while Israel attacks them. The Palestinians have been doing their best to slaughter Israelis. They just suck at it.

    •  No, that is simply not true (0+ / 0-)

      The reason it's disproportionate is because the Israelis have a far, far more powerful military.  Palestine doesn't even really have a military, just various partisan armed groups that manage to fire off some homemade rockets.

      The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

        Oh and I wouldn't call Fajr-5's and Grads, "Homemade Rockets" unless of course every home has a little factory in it.

        •  Iron Shield is not the reason (0+ / 0-)

          the casualties have always been far larger on the palestinian side than the israeli side. Iron Shield is new. Do you have some other made up nonsense to spout?
