Argument: Israel killed many times more civilians than Hamas
Rashid Khalidi. "What You Don’t Know About Gaza". New York Times. January 7, 2009: "The targeting of civilians, whether by Hamas or by Israel, is potentially a war crime. Every human life is precious. But the numbers speak for themselves: Nearly 700 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed since the conflict broke out at the end of last year. In contrast, there have been around a dozen Israelis killed, many of them soldiers."
