22. I merely felt you both did not have sufficient data to support Pelsar's claim.....
shira:
Do you know what percentage of 1933 German Jews tried and failed to get out of Germany?
No idea. Do you know?

A maximum of 30%...However, of that 30%, many chose to stay in Germany and take their chances...How many, I guess we shall never know...My point is that for the majority of German Jews in the period 1933-40 there were choices and emigrating to Palestine was simply one of them.


About 60-70 thousand total last I saw. Here's one source:

Thank you...A total of 60,000 deaths of all the combatants, more or less what I would have guessed....Excluding the Lebanese wars, Gaza and the intifada.

Compare that with the following total of all combatants in uk conflicts:
Sinai - 3,260
Cyprus - Not available
Malaya - 704
Falklands - 910
Kosovo - 500
Gulf 1 & 2 - No data available
This adds up to a total of about 6,000 + Gulf 1&2 since 1948.

I think we are getting off the subject with here, but it was Pelsar who made the claim " Actually the US and the UK have killed and maimed far more people than israel has...the UK actually sunk a WWII battleship in the atlantic during the Falklands war (how many killed?)....." and you chose to support him...I merely felt you both did not have sufficient data to support Pelsar's claim.
