Arabe Israeli fatalitites rank 49th - So what !!!

Reader comment on item: Arab-Israeli Fatalities Rank 49th

It is interesting these world-wide rankings of death. The deaths that are attributable to conflict.

Conflict can provide a form of premature death. Otherwise people become deceased in their own time.

The statistics quoted show Israel with 51,000 dead between 1950 and the present. The comparisons with other nations make it self evident that Israel is in no ways any sort of leader in this area.

The Democratic liberals however will no doubt pick up on this piece of outrageous propaganda.

These Liberal minded people need to be given something to distract them. Say… impaired driving. Isn't it nearly 50,000 people a year that are killed in the United States due to impaired driving? Shouldn't the Democrats look to their own nest instead of distracting themselves with conflict in Israel? It should be strongly emphasized that the liberals and their ilk focus on their internal conflict with Impaired drivers. Annually a horrendous number of people are killed and even more maimed for life by impaired driver's terrorizing society. Maybe the fact that the U.S. annual death toll in one year by impaired drivers is approximately equal to the total number of people killed in conflict in Israel over 57 years might mean something? Then again since indiscriminate death by impaired driver is socially acceptable to Liberals in the United States perhaps they need to occupy themselves with the perceived problems of others?
