"You are actually using the deaths of children as a propaganda exercise."
Yes, you are.
408 killed- If that is valid (ONLY source is Hamas) then HOW MANY were killed by anti-personnel warheads on Hamas rockets?
I gave you numbers before-
650- 1000 rockets HIT GAZA after being launched by Hamas.
EACH ONE will kill between 0 and 25 or so. GAZA HAS NO SHELTERS because of HAMAS using that material to make attack tunnels to threaten Israeli civilians. So it would be reasonable to use the higher end.
So IF 408 children were killed, and children are what percentage of the population- over the 31% killed, certainly- that means if ALL the HAMAS rockets are considered, EACH ONE would only have to kill 1.3 to 2 Gazans to give that number of dead kids .
1320 total dead civilians from Hamas rockets- Gee, that is about what civilians YOU claim Israel has killed TOTAL.
I am sure the actual number killed is less than that- SOME civilians ARE being used as human shields by Hamas, and at least 600 of the rockets were launched from schools, apartments, mosques and hospitals - so Israeli COUNTER-FIRE may have killed SOME civilians.
But to state that Israel has killed those 408 children, when the numbers indicate that Israel is FAR less efficient at killing Palestinian civilians than Hamas is, is plain bigotry.
