Attacks on Gaza – updates


50 Children Killed and 450 Injured in Israeli Attack on Gaza.  A report from The Real News. A story that our Canadian  mainstream media will not show.


Ma’an News Agency: Fatah, Hamas urge unity at Gaza rallies

Dutch writer Leon de Winter proposed  forced eugenics (a practice that was quite popular with the Nazis) in reaction to population growth in Gaza. Apparently he and all his audience (which included Israel’s ambassador to the Netherlands) found this funny.   Sterilize the Palestinian people, Dutch writer Leon de Winter says with Israeli ambassador listening

Excellent CBC interview with Harry Fear. In spite of the CBC reportage starting with the usual bias – emphasis on rockets being fired into Israel, and stating that Israeli jets and artillery pound “Hamas targets” (fact is that they are pounding many residential targets, and half of the casualties have not been Hamas, but civilians), I commend the CBC for airing this interview with British documentary film maker Harry Fear, on ground in Gaza.
