Israel goes for gold:
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been present during armed conflicts for nearly four decades. It is difficult to recall a comparable slaughter of civilians in so little time. Whether Mogadishu, Somalia, or Kivu, in the eastern Congo, Sri Lanka or even Darfur -- none of these wars has involved operations that produced so many deaths by direct violence in such a short period of time. We must go back to the Russian army’s December 1999 bombing of Grozny, the capital of Chechnya, to find equivalent death rates in such a short period.
Blah, blah, blah. Bettering the current record – almost 3,000 killed in a single morning (in 2001) – is going to take some effort.

Are these NGOs trying to out-Lancet each other?

One fine day in September 1970, Jordan killed more Palestinians, in a single day, than Israel has in the last 60 years.

Hamas rounded up about 40 Fatah members and shot them in the street last week. On video, of course.

A google search for "Massacre" yields plenty more. MSF didn't even bother.

"It is difficult to recall a comparable slaughter of civilians in so little time" indeed, when groups like this have such selective outrage.

Thank you Becky for a dose of commonsense. You should be accused of being a bloodthirsty Zionist overlord shortly. Expect to see those Zionist Mossad cheques turning up in the mail any day...Yes, this is what people actually believe.

So the 100,000+ dead in three days of hand to hand combat in the Taiping rebellion doesn't count, then?

Is that the Guiness or the Chris Gunness record?

Is there a 'reverb' effect inherent in this blog?

So, CJ. You don't regard 9/11 as an act of war?
