Levy Inflates Civilian Casualties By Almost 300 Percent

Israeli Gideon Levy, an extremist writer at Ha'aretz, who has in recent days gained mainstream status at the Los Angeles Times, today inflates Gaza's civilian casualties by almost three-fold. In his Op-Ed today he writes:

In four days they killed 375 people. They did not, and could not, distinguish between a Hamas official and his children, between a traffic cop and a Qassam launch operator, between a weapons cache and a health clinic, between the first and second floors of a densely populated apartment building with dozens of children inside. According to reports, about half of the people killed were innocent civilians.

Meanwhile, as reported by the Associated Press and Levy's own newspaper, the United Nations, hardly friendly to Israel, stated that at least 64 of the 374 Gaza fatalities -- or 17 percent -- are civilians. That's a margin of error of nearly 300 percent for Levy, far worse than the IDF's record.
