The next time some doofus tries to claim that "Gaza is just like Auschwitz" please refer them to this link.

And schmucks like bin Laden (supposedly) and all the usual cheerleaders have the nerve to compare what happened to the attackers in Gaza to the Holocaust.
Even if the folks in Gaza were pure as the driven snow, how does this "holocaust" compare to what happened here on September 11, 2001?
Good work Aloutte.

Casualties and losses
17,066 SLA soldiers killed as of 2001;
3,800+ SLA soldiers killed after 2001;
1,500 IPKF soldiers killed;
1,000 Sri Lankan police killed
19,877 Tigers killed as of 2007;
2,200 (LTTE claim) - 9,000 (SLA claim) Tigers killed in 2008
The casualties in Gaza have been halved. Several groups, including the UN, have said that their initial figures were all wrong, and the Palestinians lied.
Nothing new here except that for the first time, a major UN propaganda disinformation program has been corrected, by some of their own members.
I don't doubt that. And I also don't doubt that most of them died with weapons in their hands either. MY point was that the recent "bin Laden" tape referred to Gaza as a "holocaust" and I thought this particularly absurd since bin Laden seems to want to take credit for the deaths of about 3000 Americans which occurred over only a few hours on Septemeber 11, 2001.
Instead of collection $900M to help Gaza rebuild how ‘bout we send them $900M worth of U-Hauls. Seriously. Let one of the Arab or Arab-supporting countries take them in.
If you'd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Too bad you didn’t say “The number of casualties quadrupled when it was revealed how may Gauzheads had been shot by their own people”
