Subject: Yes, indeed. Disproportionate Losses in This War


A six-minute tribute to each of the boys who has fallen in this war.  It includes each one’s name, face, where he lived.

I came away from this video thinking that the anti-Semites partially are correct when they say that this war has seen disproportionate casualties, as between the two sides.  After each hostage release, it has been they — not we — who have insisted that one Israeli soldier is equivalent to a thousand of them.

Yes, indeed.  Disproportionate losses in this war.  We have lost too many dear and precious boys.
