In the days before computerised tills shopkeepers calculated change be "adding-up". I recall how incredulous my grandparents were at our generation being taught column subtraction rather than the quick and mentally efficient "adding-up" method. How about this .... 38 is 13 more than 25. 25 to 325 is 300. So 300 -13 = 287. Quick, easy, no paper, no carrying, no worry.

I can't help wonder in which 'column' they are going to count the 18 Palestinians executed by Hamas for allegedly collaborating with Israel? Maybe ..... 2000+ Palestinians killed Israeli bombs 64 Israelis and at least 18 Palestinians killed by Hamas

Israel is being blamed for their attacks because Hamas has no military ability to aim their 1000+ rockets. This is no moral argument, just convenient politics from inferior minds.

A Tale of Two Moralities

In addition, many Leftists, Muslims and media outlets are doing a body count of the airstrikes and rockets to claim total culpability on the part of Israel. By ignoring its immoral motives, Hamas gets a free pass for the hundreds of rockets fired at Israel because they are useless at aiming them. This is worse than moral equivalence, it is moral reversal.
