Genocide of Arabs and Muslims

A great article in Maariv translated by Imshin. Go read the whole thing. In a nutshell, it compares the numbers of Arabs killed by Israel since 1948 with the numbers killed in other conflicts since then, and goes on to analyze why the world is fixated on the comparatively puny numbers Israel is responsible for.

A short summary of Arab/Muslim deaths in some countries since 1948, using the lowest estimates.

Algeria

600,000

Sudan

2,600,000

Afghanistan

2,000,000

Somalia

400,000

Bangladesh

1,400,000

Indonesia

400,000

East Timor

100,000

Iraq

1,540,000

Iran

450,000

Lebanon

130,000

Yemen

100,000

Chechnya

80,000


Most of these Arabs/Musims were killed by other Arabs/Muslims.

And in the Israel/Arab conflict? Total 60,000, of which only a few thousand are Palestinian Arabs and the vast majority died in wars that Arabs themselves started.

Compared to over ten million Muslims killed in the same time period.

The entire article is lengthy but worth it.
