Develop a test

Dr Pipes

Another clear and no doubt on the nose article.

May I suggest that you propose in advance of Aug 15th a number of measurable factors that are representative of the scale of the palestinian aggression. Counting the bombs or number of interceptions at checkpoints etc. is of course obvious but those more in the know than I could surely present other factors.

This would allow a before and after picture to emerge - either comparing the result to the time directly before Aug 15 or to the corresponding periods in the years previous - according to statistics which you can't fiddle as they were put forward before the act. It is very easy to perform standard statistical tests on such figures.

Kind Regards

John M
