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

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Oct 9, 2007 at 10:34

Although I usually don't trust statistics, in this case I must agree with Prof. Heinsohn. Mao Tse-Tung truly is the most infamous murderer of the 20th Century but the world continues to focus on Israel.

Having been to China twice (1984, 1985) as a visitor, I can only relate what I saw in a few short weeks: big cities vying for a place in the modern world but a countryside stalled in the 19th Century, the people suppressed in the most horrible ways. This was the legacy of Mao Tse-Tung and continues today.

There seems to be an imbalance of focus in recent years, the world condemning Israel for maintaining and defending its place and conveniently forgetting the atrocities that the Chinese government wreaked on its people and continues to this day. The fact of Israel's very existence seems to throw its enemies into various frenzies of criticisms that only prove that it is not going to recede, that it will always be an important, if extremely volatile, place in the world.
