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

 Their [the Talibans's] understanding of Islam is completely wrong and misleading... Their ways can only harm the islamic religion.....We support and sympathize with any movement which defend the right of its people to enjoy self-governance and independance, but we are not prepared to seek an alliance with those [Taliban] movements.

Scheich Ahmad Yassin
(Mitbegründer und geistiger Führer der Hamas. Der 2004 durch ein israelisches Attentat ums Leben gekommene Führer der Hamas Yassin zur Haltung der Hamas gegenüber den Taliban)
