How Hamas Wields Gaza’s Casualties as Propaganda

Very interesting, especially for where it appears. The article not only looks at the demographics of the dead (80% male, 20% under 17) which are completely different from the general population (my money is on 65±15% combatants among the dead). But the article points out that on a previous occasion Hamass itself flip-flopped on the “civilian” nature of casualties: for world consumption, it claimed 80% civilian dead. Then, one year later, faced with severe internal criticism over the total lack of any attempt to protect civilians, the HamAss regime suddenly came up with revised figures that were fundamentally what the IDF had been claiming all along. But this was a year after the conflict, and of course in Arabic for local consumption. The gullible ninnies, useful idiots, and fellow travelers in the Western media never retracted their earlier wild accusations.
