Rami Almeghari - update from Gaza

Wed, 07/30/2014
On Wednesday July 30th, the Palestinian Ministry of Health voiced outraged at a new massacre of civilians perpetrated during the so-called humanitarian ceasefire this afternoon.

Israeli forces said they would stop the bombing that has been constant for the last two days for three hours to allow people to buy food and supplies.

But when hundreds of people were out on the street at a market in eastern Gaza, U-S supplied F-16 aircraft fired missiles into the crowd, killing fifteen and wounding two hundred.

The bombing of the market followed an Israeli airstrike that hit a school in Jabalia early wednesday that also killed around fifteen people, and wounded dozens more.

‘Protocols of Zionists’?
You may not have heard OF The "2009 Global Language Dictionary”, but you have definitely heard FROM this strange little lexicon. The dictionary is a handbook for assembling Zionist propaganda or ‘hasbara’ (Hebrew for propaganda) for Israel. Sort of a make-over for a monster.  This the reason why Israeli news, proclamations and protestation all come in the same suspicious flavor designed to defend the indefensible.

Latest from Gaza: hundreds of bombs dropped Tuesday; over 1200 Palestinians killed since 7/8

Mohammed Omer from Gaza spoke with KBOO on Tuesday night 7/29 around midnight Gaza time.  Planes were flying overhead, naval artillery was firing from the west and tanks firing from the east.  Tens of thousands of Palestinians who followed Israeli orders to evacuate to Gaza City found themselves under fire there as well.  As Mohammed reports, there seems to be a deliberate attempt to cut off all communication to and from Gaza - bombing of cell phone towers, the destruction of the power plant in last night's bombing, and the targeting of journalists.  Mohammed told us that a busload of foreign journalists was seen leaving Gaza today - "always a bad sign", he said, as his phone crackled and cut. 8:06 minutes (7.42 MB)

Juan Cole on Gaza

program date: 
Mon, 07/28/2014

Laurie Mercier talks with historian and Middle-East specialist Juan Cole about current events in Gaza. They discuss Israel's motives in launching its attack, and the history of Israel's occupation of Palestine, attacks on Hamas, and expansion of settlements in the West Bank. In addition, Laurie and Professor Cole discuss the role of the US: the failure of much of the US mainstream media to report adequately on events in Palestine; the US support for Israel; the impact of financial contributions on corrupt US legislators; and the possibility that the US could make all the difference by withholding its veto of UN security-council measures censuring Israel. 18:14 minutes (8.35 MB)
