 The Suicide Bombers - The New York Review of Books
Eighteen Palestinians were killed by Israelis in the clashes that day (in comparison, four were killed in the skirmishes that started the current intifada).
It is true that the Palestinian community is in a state of despair, but this does not mean that each and every person, in his or her personal life, is in despair—any more than the fact that the US is relatively rich makes each American rich.
The suicide bombers convey to the Israelis the message that the resentment of the Palestinians, or at least of a good many of them, cannot be alleviated by Jews and that their demands cannot be met.

 The “al-Aqsa Intifada” — An Engineered Tragedy
Palestinian fatalities, in contrast, have been consistently and overwhelmingly (over 95 percent) male; even when combatants (almost all of whom have been male) are removed from consideration, just 8 percent of Palestinians killed by Israel have been female.
Israeli combatant fatalities are concentrated in a narrow age range, as we would expect for soldiers in a uniformed army.
This pattern of Palestinian deaths completely contradicts accusations that Israel has “indiscriminately targeted women and children.” It is clear that the vast majority of the Palestinians killed did not die as the result of random Israeli attacks on inhabited areas, or on mixed-sex crowds at roadblocks and the like.

Israeli forces have also killed 13 unarmed Israeli Arabs who demonstrated in protest at the killing of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip after the start in late September of an Intifada (uprising) against Israeli occupation.

Israeli officials initially disputed the claim that bystanders were injured in the second strike and released a videotape as evidence; upon closer examination, however, the tape confirmed the Palestinian version of the events.

These numbers include civilians and combattants killed by members of the opposing nationality (and therefore, do not include Palestinians killed by an explosive device that they set or was on their person, Israelis killed in 'friendly fire' incidents, etc.).
The figure for Palestinian deaths is extremely conservative, since it is difficult for B'Tselem to report on deaths in the Palestinian territories.
In the past we used the statistics provided by Israel’s military for the number of Israelis killed, but they have not updated their statistics page since early in 2006.

In the coverage of Israeli deaths, readers were given extensive details about the victims' lives, making their deaths more personal to readers and more horrendous, even though all of the deaths, Israeli and Palestinian, are equally tragic.
The numerous and constant heartrending scenes of Israeli families mourning their dead at gravesides were also missing from coverage of Palestinian deaths.
