Palestinian Bodycounts

The main 'global' Indymedia page is featuring a front page 'report' entitled Report: 4032 killed, 44,666 injured in Palestine since September 2000.

The article cites Yasser Arafat's "Palestinian National Information Service", a site which calls itself: the "sate (sic) information service".

In a land where words matter, the article doesn't specify how many of those killed were armed or shooting at Israelis (civilians included) at the time, or simply blew themselves up.

It wouldn't be biased or anything and I'm sure that's precisely why Indymedia has used it. The facts are too many people have died in this conflict and completely one-sided reporting isn't helping.
