Al Jazeera on Sunday published a list of Gazans who died since Israels Operation Protective Edge Began two weeks ago, based on data provided by Ashraf al-Qedra, a spokesman for the Gaza Health Ministry.
A breakdown by age and gender published on the Israellycool blog on Sunday confirmed the trend reported in a similar analysis last week by CAMERA, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America, that showed most of the dead were combatant age males, not women or children.
The analysis showed that 82% of the dead were men, and 50 per cent of them were between 18 and 28 years old, and 66 per cent between 18 and 38.
Israellycool linked to an article published by Bret Stephens in The Wall Street Journal in 2008 about that conflict between Hamas and Israel, referring to another report about the conflict in 2002, showing that it has always been impossible for Hamas to back up the claim of indiscriminate killing by the IDF, let alone the crazy charge of deliberately targeting civilians.

I tell you one thing I saw dead body on Al Jazeera English news today
Israel's got some nerve.
Israel targets rockets in buildings next to hospitals,mosques where Hamas has put Them,along with civilians,then when it gets bombed by Israel they show all the civilian casualties,then the suckers eat it up
Don’t muddy propaganda with facts, man!
Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. If they hid behind armed citizens, they’d be combatants, and then how will they get the IDF to shoot non-combatants?
These are people killed for supporting shooting rockets into Israel. Good list, hope it keeps growing. We don’t need people with this attitude walking around free.
