The truth is that Israeli soldiers are endangered in order to protect enemy Arabs. No other country has such a policy. I'd call it an idiotic, even suicidal policy.
This may sound strange to non-believers, but the reason that there have been "disproportionate" death tolls is that miracles happen. G-d protects us. It was seen in the Gulf War of George Bush I. Iraq launched dozens and dozens of rockets and missiles at Israel which damaged homes, but miraculously barely harmed people. One death was a heart attack. Then towards the end of the war, one of those very same rockets hit an American army barracks and close to twenty Americans were killed.
Prior to the modern State of Israel, the favorite anti-Semitic accusation was the "Blood Libel." Over the last thousand years, this has been a favorite of Jew-haters. There's nothing rational in it of course. They never let the fact that blood is forbidden to Jews prevent those accusations from spreading and being believed.
No surprise that the Arabs have adopted it, too.

The skit opens as the father instructs: "We Jews hate the Muslims, we want to kill the Muslims, we Jews want to drink the blood of Muslims." It is later explained that Jews wash their hands before prayer, not with water, but with Muslims' blood: "We have to wash our hands with the blood of Muslims." (excerpt)
As King Solomon wrote in Kohelet, Ecclesiastes, "Nothing's new."
Most of the world gladly accepts and believes anything negative about us, even when proven false. The very worst thing is the support of these allegations by our fellow Jews.
Only when we unite in defense of ourselves will we be safe. "Being safe" is "peace." True peace doesn't come from a signed piece of paper. Only when we become "Ovdei Hashem," servants of G-d, rather than "Ovadim hayinu l'Paroh b'Mitzrayim," "We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt," will we be free men, free from fear of destruction.
