VIDEO: Children of Gaza

by Channel Four TV (U.K.)

On Monday 15th March, Channel 4 aired an episode of Dispatches entitled "The Children of Gaza". It focused on the lives of a few of the children living in that small strip of Palestinian land whose lives were devastated when, 15 months ago, Israel launched its military attack on their homes, killing many of their parents and relatives, and shattering their already fragile existences.

It showed how they have bravely tried to deal with their losses and bereavements and have tried to move on with their lives, and simultaneously how Israel has ensured that this is well near impossible as a result of the children’s literal incarceration in Gaza due to Israel’s illegal and ongoing siege.

The documentary focused on how they have been struggling to deal with the fallout of their physical injuries as well as their psychological scars which, in all probability, they will never fully recover from.

For once, this documentary was an opportunity for the children of Gaza themselves to speak out and to tell their own stories instead of it being told on their behalf by propagandists with a vested interest in how these children are portrayed.

Incredibly Powerful Video

Thx for posting. Will pass onto everyone I know.

I sent this to a friend

and she called me that she liked this but she said she couldn't show it to her husband because he wouldn't get it. Ugh! sad. Never give up trying to reach people, we must change the way they think. Give PEACE a chance without some covert operation trying to screw it up.

What station was it though?

Was it a network station or some off channel documentary? I'd love to hear it was MSM showing it, instead of PBS.

Blah.

Channel 4~ in the U.K.

I wish it would be shown in America..PBS or MSM! For now, it seems, it is up to those of us that catch these documentaries online to help spread it around for more to see!

Israeli Minister Vows New Gaza Invasion

by Jason Ditz, March 28, 2010

Though he balked at setting any timeline for when it would happen, Israeli Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz promised that Israel would “sooner or later” invade and reoccupy the Gaza Strip, liquidating Hamas in the process.

Minister Steinitz, a member of the ruling Likud Party, said that Israel would have to reoccupy the Gaza Strip to prevent Hamas from rearming and that it was “left with no choice” in the matter.

Israel to Allow Shoes Into Gaza After 3 Year Ban

see article below. I guess the Israeli's are allowing the shoes as a humanitarian PR gesture before they massacre Gaza civilians again.

Israel to Allow Shoes Into Gaza After 3 Year Ban !

* Now the Palestinians just need food, water, shelter and medical supplies..they will almost be treated like human beings then! Maybe one day they can even be allowed to leave thier cage.

Israel to Allow Shoes Into Gaza After 3 Year Ban !

According to Palestinian officials, the Israeli government has made one of its most significant revisions to the Gaza blockade in three years, allowing the importation of shoes and certain types of clothes into the tiny enclave.

Israel has not allowed any shoes to be legally brought into the Gaza Strip since 2007, and officially cemented the ban in 2008 under the claim that shoes were a ‘dual use technology.’ This argument was based on claims that since militaries wear shoes as part of their uniforms, any shoes imported into the strip might be used as part of a military uniform. This same argument was made in the banning of many types of clothing.

If we are rounded up in a small ghetto and. . .

arbitrarily denied of basic food or jobs and made to witness our children die under bulldozed falling walls of our own homes and experience other humiliating intentionally inflicted sufferings. . . won't we wish that SOMEONE would notice and speak up for us???

Many thanks for showing us the glimpse of the life in Gaza at this very moment of history. I hope we find enough courageous voices, from within and outside of Israel, to speak up for these suffering people. -y

Brutalizing Palestinian Children

Short of fundamental change, Palestinian men, women and children will continue to be victimized by state-sponsored terrorism, a condition no longer to be tolerated by nations claiming they're civilized.

As an isolated incident, it would be appalling and criminal. As a regular occurrence, it's state-sponsored terrorism against defenseless children, subjected to barbarism by Israeli soldiers committing crimes against humanity to crush their will for wanting to live free on their own land - what Westerners take for granted; what Palestinians since 1948 haven't had, and since 1967, under military occupation denying their very humanity.

Amir 10 yrs old
On March 7 at 2AM, "Israeli soldiers (broke) into (his) house, snatch(ed) Amir from his bed, threatened his parents with death by gunfire if they" interfered, took him down the stairwell, and brutally beat him causing internal abdomen bleeding, requiring overnight hospitalization. "In complete shock and distress, Amir would not open his mouth to speak for another day and a half."

On March 9, Haaretz writer Nir Hassan headlined, "Israel using strong arm tactics against young Palestinian stone-throwers," saying several Silwan, East Jerusalem youths "were arrested and taken from their home(s) in handcuffs in the middle of the night over the past few months, as part of a police crackdown on suspected stone-throwers....," not militants, gunmen, murderers, or bomb throwers threatening civil society - alleged stone-throwers punishable by imprisonment up to 20 years under Military Order 378 if convicted.

Children 12 - 15 have been targeted, arrested, detained, and savagely beaten following complaints by Jewish settlers who usually take the law into their own hands using weapons they're allowed to carry.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

and this is what our government is backing day after day...war after war...threat after threat...
with each passing day...we are more complicit in this most outrageous, disgusting mistreatment and abuse of not only adults but small children....and this isn't even the worse of it...i've seen videos more disgusting and more inhumane than this...

I have spoken to several Israelis

and ALL of them DENY DENY DENY there is ANY level of mistreatment going on. I would then confront them with video and they would not take the video seriously and would continue their denials. It was really other worldly that normal intelligent people can utterly choose to blind themselves from reality.

Watched

and bump.
Thank you for posting. I will never understand how the US supports Israel in what they do or why so many americans see the Palestinians as these big dangerous terrorists such a dangerous threat to poor little Israel. Just seems like the whole view from our media and many of the Christians in the US is totally backwards. It won't be though. They are creating a generation of hopeless angry young people with nothing to lose by seeking revenge for the death and destruction that has been put on their families. Unimaginable. How would we react to such things?

Thank you,Chonk and ytc for watching this.

Really, Thank you for your compassion. Please send to all those you can and help spread this!

I sometimes just can't handle the apathy and willful ignorance...even here on DP. So few look or even acknowledge... much less try to help spread this ongoing horror our nation supports with OUR dollars and our inaction to stop it!

I cry alot.
