Comment: Good journalism.

(See in situ)

Good journalism.

This TV report echoes other information I have read on the situation. Max Blumenthal drew attention to the fact that these events are driven by internal Israeli politics that he describes as "classic" behaviour by Israel's leaders. This is also something I have read in the articles of a friend who is a political prisoner in Bolivia and an Israeli dissident who has survived two assassination attempts by Mossad.

His latest three articles are about the current situation and you can link to other writings from them that give an in depth understanding of how Israeli leaders think and why they do what they do.

One thing Max did not mention is that the current Israeli operation that started on November 14 has a name: Pillar of Cloud, which is an effort to imply that this is the work of God by referring to the pillar of cloud that guided the ancient Israelites during their wanderings in the wilderness after they left Egypt.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
