The New York Times now lists children among the victims of the war on Gaza

"More than 2,000 Palestinians have been killed in the fighting that is stretching into a seventh week, most of them civilians, according to monitoring groups. On the Israeli side, 64 soldiers and four civilians have been killed, including a 4-year-old boy from a small community near the border who was killed by mortar fire. He was first Israeli child to be killed in the current conflict, and he was buried Sunday."  The obvious question, of course, is why the one Israeli child is worth mentioning but not the 500 Palestinian children??
