Both Israel and Palestine murder innocent civilians. I personally think a lot of the one-sided anger Americans have with Palestinian terrorism comes from their sympathies with Israel. Like I said, both are irresponsible with the use of force and both kill civilians. Palestine may target civilians more, but Israel is overzealous with its use of force and has killed a lot of innocents, including children, as a result.If not, then clearly you are asking it sincerely, you actually do not know or believe the Palestinians to have any other option but to murder innocent Jewish civilians, and thus the interpretation I've made earlier is the only one that can be made. You leave no room for any other interpretations.
Of course numbers are not the end all be all, but I also think your faith in how Israel tries not to target civilians is a bit misguided. I don't think Israel wants to just kill innocent people, but I think they see a strategic value in targeting civilians along with militants. I also think that Israel could decrease civilians' sympathy with terrorist organizations (and in turn, their power) by appearing more serious about coming up with a solution to the current conflict.And here you suggest that numbers are a decisive factor in deciding on intent. No, they are not, there are thousand of other factors to be taken into mind except of numbers. At the end of the day it falls down to the fact that Palestinian terrorists actually target civilians while Israeli forces do not and have no intention to, and indeed, actually try and minimize the casualties amongst civilians.
After all one could just as well say that because there were way less civilian casualties of the war on terrorism on the Western side than there was on the Islamic side it means that the Western forces are the ones to be targeting civilians and not the Islamic terrorist organizations. That as you can see would clearly not be the case, just as the suggestion you're making with those figures is far from being the case concerning Israeli forces' intentions.
