Video: Kinder von Gaza

In December 2008, the Israeli Defence Force unleashed a campaign to destroy the ability of Hamas to launch rockets and mortars into Israel (Operation Cast Lead / Gegossenes Blei).

Around 300 children were among the 1,300 Palestinians that were killed.

After the ceasefire, BAFTA-winning filmmaker Jezza Neumann arrived in Gaza to follow the lives of three children over a year.

Surrounded by the remnants of the demolished Gaza Strip and increasingly isolated by the blockade that prevents anyone from rebuilding their homes and their lives, Children of Gaza is a shocking, touching and uniquely intimate reflection on extraordinary courage in the face of great adversity.

Israel - Zitat des Tages

 At times it seems as if what Jews do to other jews in this country [Israel] would be defined in any other country as nothing less than antisemtisim.

David Grossman
(Israelischer Autor. Man vergleiche das mit einer nicht untypischen Äußerung eines ultra-orthodoxen jüdischen Siedlers: "The Israeli secular entity has to be destroyed. God can't reveal himself until it's all wiped out. As long as the state of Israel stays as it is, there will be no redemption." Shmuel Ben Yishai, Settler, Hebron (Interview CBS Frontline April 2005). Was der Siedler hier verlangt ist nichts weniger als die Beseitigung des Staates Israel.)
