Side-by-side in Gaza redux

Published by marco on

In 2009, Side-by-side in Gaza noted the disparity in the damage caused by Palestinian ordnance versus that caused by Israeli. As revealed in pictures from Israel—Gaza conflict (Big Picture Blog), the stark difference remains in 2012. Is it clear that, while the Gazans are capable of producing some weaponry despite the strict blockades (and allegedly with Iran and Arab countries in its corner), its firepower pales in comparison to that of the Israelis (with the U.S. in its corner). Having the right friends makes all the difference.


#1 − Numbers


Some numbers I heard yesterday by Swiss national radio station about the current conflict: 3 dead Israelis vs. 170 dead Palestine.
