Glenn Greenwald: Why did NBC (mainstream American media channel) pull veteran reporter after he witnessed Israeli war crimes in the killing of Gaza children playing soccer on the beach in Gaza City?
"A Terrifying Night in Gaza": reporting on criminal Israel's illegal ground invasion
Israel bombs Gaza’s only rehab hospital: staff forced to evacuate patients after shelling 

(IA) The War Around Us recently nabbed the best feature documentary award at the Newport Beach Film Festival. It profiles Israel's 2008-2009 invasion of Gaza through the eyes of two young English correspondents working for Al-Jazeera (the only major media outlet willing to work in Gaza and show the other side of Israel's war crimes that the very calculated Israeli war machine and public relations campaign does not want shown to the world), Ayman Mohyeldin and Sherine Tadros.
  • What is Gaza? It is at once the largest open-air prison, making Israel the largest jailer in the world, even beyond the USA and China, and the most densely populated urban city in the world (almost two million detainees).
  • According to "The Lab" the real reason for these atrocities, crimes against humanities, and Israel's incremental genocide  is to test American-made and provided weaponry. Israel only acts with American aid, permission, and direction. the purpose is ethnic cleaning with whatever pretext comes to hand, such as the "kidnapping of three Israeli settler youth" from yet another illegal Israeli settlement.
Through their eyes, viewers get a glimpse into the Israeli incursion on the 25-by-7-mile Gaza strip. Israel's Jewish military (with compulsory military service demanded of all Jews of a certain age, including women but exempting ultra-Orthodox Jews, to gain Israeli citizenship) killed nearly 1,400 Palestinians [89 children by Israel's own "official" count, which is to say those it could not deny or obscure] and 13 Israelis (four from friendly fire).
