You know I'm a numbers guy too. You're using numbers to spin an agenda. The numbers you quote don't tell a story, they're just numbers.
The facts are 1) the land has belonged to enough people over the last five thousand years that it's simply not possible to say who it "should" belong to 2) Palestinians have been screwed by every side, including Britain, but especially by other Arab nations and 3) Israel has tanks and a first-rate air force now, but it didn't always--it wasn't too long ago that the IDF was using leftover WWII equipment to fight off six nations at once. No one complained about "disproportionate" response then.
