Hundreds more people?

In a comment to my video Israel Attacks Gaza, Silence from Mainstream Media about Israeli Violations of International Law, a YouTuber called You4test posted this in a comment, "how many israelis have been dead by the so-called hamas rocket attacks? only 6 israeli died? how about palestinian "550+". Clearly proves who is the victim of war. Even the CNN and C-Span exposed Israel's crimes." Replying to You4test, aricane54 argues, "first of all, wow you couldnt be less informed. Your looking at how many have died by rockets in israel SINCE this war began. Hundreds more people have died by hamas rockets since 2006, way before this war began."

In response to aricane54's erroneous argument I wrote, "aricane54, YOU ARE SERIOUSLY MISINFORMED! "hundreds of people" have NOT died by Hamas rockets since 2006! NOT EVEN CLOSE!

Here's the facts: Up until Israel's current attack of Dec. 27th, rocket and mortar attacks since late 2005 have killed 10 Israelis. During the 6 month truce, no Israelis were killed. After the Israeli attacks were launched on Dec. 27th, 4 have been killed.

Aricane54 questioned what I wrote, "representativepress, you think that 10 israelis have been killed by rockets? have you even followed the situation in israel before this war started? what about the rockets fired at sderot, ashkelon, beer sheva, only 10? cmon, lets do a little better research than that. Second of all, it doesnt matter how many were killed, it matters that the rockets were fired. It gave israel an incentive to attack, so maybe they didnt get lucky and didnt hit anyone with a rocket..they were still fired"

I replied that, "I write that because that is the statistic which FAIR uses and they are quoting theisraelproject. Now PLEASE stop for a minute and think about how distorted a view the media has given you of the situation with Israel and Gaza. Could you at least consider reexamining what it is you assume you know? I have to tell you, the mass media has mislead you."

'During the last seven years, 14 Israelis have been killed by mostly homemade rockets fired from the Gaza Strip, while more than 5,000 Palestinians were killed by Israel with some of the most advanced US-supplied armaments in the world', Seumas Milne, The Guardian, 30 December 2008.

Wow. Such a authoritative source. Hmm... 14 israelis have been killed... :D Really?
Mostly israelis have been killed by shahids. I may mention for example the bombing in Jerusalem.

This is really lie! People! It is lie! Come on read some stuff in wikipedia.

Your with Israel or your with the terrorists period. Nothing better to prove this than showing Palestinians celebrating and dancing in the attacks of 911.

Well if there is one thing that seems to amaze me is how the Muslim world was quick to point the finger at Israel, when Iran who helped aid the terrorist organizations of Hamas and Hezbollah remained blameless. I feel that it is the president of Iran who should be charged with war crimes for aiding Hamas and Hezbollah the ones who created this whole mess in the first place. I see that people in the Muslim world are also hypocrites when in fact they are supporting and justifying terrorism of Hamas. I have also noticed that people in Palestine do not mention that Hamas kills their own people in Gaza. This is something Saddam Hussein did as well, as i saw some supporters in the pro-palestinian support groups even putting pictures as Saddam Hussein as a martyr. I think people need to look at this more realistically and i feel that just because Hamas, the president of Iran are Muslims does not make them innocent angels. I also know how Hamas operates and i know they had secretly recruited people to die alongside them to help destroy the image of Israel, other than using those who refused to participate with the criminal organization as human Shields. The IDF has also tried to reduce civilian casualties by warning the citizens to leave the area that will be attacked by throwing white pamphlets into the battle field. If the people who are collaborating alongside Hamas whether it be women and children there is nothing Israel can do if they are participating to die in suicide missions to help destroy Israels image in the media. They recruit people in Gaza the same way they would convince a Palestinian suicide bomber to join in to kill themselves to get into heaven. The president of Iran is quite mistaken if he thinks he can get away with these major crimes and manipulating the media in his favor. I also feel that the Arab league and the UN made things worse by also pointing the finger at Israel which only increased the violence and Hamas popularity and justifying the terrorism of Hamas and as well make government officials in Israel angry. I do press for international condemnation against the president of Iran for war crimes in aiding terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah. This war will not end until Hamas and Hezbollah are long and dead forever and no real peace will be achieve until they are gone for good. The president of Iran must also be stopped. I said it before and i will say it again, if you are not with Israel you support terrorism. Palestinians don't support terrorism you say? They voted for Hamas who passed the Hamas charter and where on the streets celebrating during the attacks of 911.
