When it comes to numbers, Western and Arab (read Saudi and Qatari) media basically regurgitate whatever numbers they receive from Syrian Ikhwan-dominated opposition media.  Yesterday, I heard "an activist" on the BBC say that there are 100,000 injured in Syria. Today, on Aljazeera, a member of the Syrian National Council said that there are 36,000 injured.
