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

 Unfortunately, too often we lose sight of the need to be advocates for both Arabs and Israelis. The mostrecent example of this was the Clinton administration's effort in 1999-2000 to broker final deals betweenIsrael, Syria and the Palestinians.
