Macabre mathematics

I'm always a little sceptical towards bodycounts, since they tend to reduce human lives and suffering to numbers and statistics. That said, in 22 days more than 1,200 people have been killed by the Israeli aggression. 1,200 deaths out of a population of 1.5 million would have corresponded to 5,825 deaths in Israel, 7,387 deaths in Sweden or 244,800 deaths in the United States. That's 9-11 times 82.
