"Instead, Oslo brought the Palestinians poverty, corruption, a cult of death, suicide factories and militant Islamic radicalization. The Israelis have mainly suffered from terrorism's toll of 854 murders and 5,051 injuries, plus assorted economic and diplomatic losses."

I believe that the number of Israeli casualties since Oslo has in fact been considerably higher. The number referred to in the article is the number of casualties since the so called 'second intifida', launched three years ago. These numbers can be seen at the following site: http://www.idf.il/daily_statistics/english/1.doc
