    Default Tears of Gaza 2010


    Before crying propaganda , Hamas is hardly mentioned throughout the film.
    The directors explain that it is not Hamas that is being hit hardest in such a war,
    it is the civilians, and this is what the producers have tried to focus on through this film.


    “Few antiwar films register with the disturbing immediacy and visceral terror of "Tears of Gaza"...
    Almost purely observational, "Tears" doesn't take sides as much as obliterate politics:
    The wounded parents carrying maimed children are not in uniform,
    and the bullet holes in the 2-year-olds did not arrive by accident...

    The inherent cruelty of so much of the action, committed against civilians with very little infrastructure,
    services or commercial goods, much less equipment to fight fires, comes through loud and clear...
    In any event, what's shown is a revelation, except of course in Gaza...
    Production values are good overall, but the cinematography is the standout...”

    People like that do no-one any good, let's hope we hear no more of her.

    With one Israeli dead yet over a dozen Palestinians including 5 children.

    The header on that Video Mentions "Jewish Aggression" , I think such inflammatory verbiage is unhelpful to the human Rights issues actually at stake here. This in nothing to do with Jews or Muslims or such. Its pure fascism, militarism and state aggression against civil society and it's indicative of a sick US Foreign Policy that is leading us all to the brink of a potentially terrible regional conflict.
    Invoking the Jewish identity here is counter productive and irresponsible. I wouldn't personally watch any video that conflates Judaism or Jewish identity with Israeli state crimes as it will probably have more irresponsible references in it..
