Statistics Indicate Israel Kills 25 Palestinians for Every One of Their Own

It is a manic game of over-retaliation that can't last forever.

Gaza's dead babies

(SALEM) - Much has been written about the disparity between the killings of Palestinian and Israeli people.

Salah Abu Latif

Media accounts published in the U.S. often concentrate on the Israeli side of the story, causing the public to believe in many cases, that Palestinians represent a serious threat to the Israeli populace.

The Hamas rockets that are consistently reported in the United States have killed roughly 30 Israeli people - not a small number, but tiny in comparison to the number of Palestinians killed in the same time frame, since the early 1990's when the first rockets were fired.

The Gaza rockets are unguided glorified fireworks.

Israeli weapons on the other hands, feature the most sophisticated targeting systems in use on this planet.

According to Ha'aretz:

    The Palestinian group Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) took responsibility for the morning shooting at Kibbutz Nahal Oz that killed Defense Ministry employee Salah Abu Latif, 22. He was the first Israeli to be killed from Gaza fire since Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012.

The PRC is not the government of Gaza, Hamas is. Yet the killing led to widespread retaliation from Israel. This is the norm in this region of occupation. One Israeli death is worth 30 Arab deaths, that is how the game is played.

According to the al Qassam Brigades (Hamas)

    Israeli occupation forces have killed 25 Palestinians in the West Bank since the beginning of 2013, at least 20 of whom were civilians unaffiliated with any armed group according to the United Nations.

    Of these 25, four were children. Thus far, 2013 has registered the highest number of child fatalities by Israeli forces in the West Bank since 2006.

    The most recent child fatality was 14 year old Wajih al-Ramhi, who was killed on December 7 by Israeli troops in the Jelazoun refugee camp near Ramallah.

    The number of the injured Palestinians was up to 3653 compared to 3031 in the last year which indicates a clear escalation of Israeli attacks.

- UN report :Israeli occupation kills 25 Palestinians this year

It was further reported that the number of Palestinian fatalities in the Gaza Strip during the first 11 months of 2013 decreased by 96 percent compared to 2012 (267 vs 10). The number of Palestinian injuries also decreased from 1,484 in 2012 to 55 so far in 2013.

At Least 3608 Palestinians Injured in 2013

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), reports that at least 3,608 Palestinians were injured by Israeli soldiers, this year.

Furthermore, the report states that at least 145 Palestinians were injured in 91 reported attacks by Jewish settlers, World Bulletin writes.

    The depressing numbers continue and describe how there have also been 300 attacks by settlers, which targeted Palestinian-owned property and land.

    10,510 Palestinian olive trees were damaged by the settlers, which means a 25% increase in this type of attack.

    It is explained, in the report, that violence by settlers in the West Bank includes physical assault on individuals, harassment, takeover of and damage to private property, obstruction of access to agricultural land and water resources, along with attacks on livestock, agricultural land and places of worship.

Fairness and humanity have no place in this occupation as long as Israel is allowed to maintain an apartheid government. Palestinians and those who support them can only hope that international law is eventually observed and not made into a chronic mockery by the Zionist state of Israel.

The relation you see between Israel and Palestine is the gauge to understand the picture beyond the conflict and goes long way to tell about the changes happening everywhere. Israel was a concept before became a State and today is a State like no other. In fact it is the only Country in the World that does not define its borders in its Constitution and now, armed to the teeth, is ready to use any mean to expand its territory. We may soon see the rise of the New World Order. Responsible for this are not the Jewish people but the Jewish culture as school of Greed and master of Lies. Unquestionably this culture is Equality's ultimate enemy. Originated from slavery, the culture of Moses was personified two thousand years ago by "money changers", in this century instead by "international bankers". Today, one small group of individuals, like one parallel government hidden in the UK, USA and Israel works relentlessly to build a huge Human Cage while also the citizens of those same Countries are unaware victims manipulated by this Plan based upon the Biblical concept of one "chosen people". Without the need of a crystal ball and without a doubt, there is one Plan for the largest robbery of all times attempted by these criminals masked as bankers or politicians.

There is one single Solution for this old saga.

So in the last two generations what is the cross-murder rate of the different races/ethnic groups in North America, Europe and Australia? Now that is what impacts us in more immediate terms. Oh did you notice how Atty. Gen. Holder has indicted a white Texan for hitting a black male, but not one word of the hundreds of whites being assaulted and killed in the recent past? I'm sure you have interest in the Israeli/Palestinian scenario, but we have a race war, like it or not, happening right now, and it's been dialing up since the 60's. In time, no martial law will stop the payback coming.

At the end of the day we are all human and that's it.  From one earthling to another.
