I just watched it a second time......even more disturbing.....and a superb bit of video work if one wants to view it only on that basis.

Shocking indeed. But then that's most often what propaganda films are supposed to be. Lot's of 'did you know' questions but no explanation of why this situation has arisen. Why Hamas governs there, and what it's agenda is for a couple. And if you build your military positions in the middle of dwellings, you must be prepared to take the consequences. And of the children killed, how many were armed, and already at perhaps 14 years of age, committed enemies of Israel?

Some cheesy Hollywood war film had the catch phrase "The first casualty of war is the truth." Corny, but in the case of the Middle East, entirely appropriate. And don't think for a minute that this will not affect us if we just let them get on with it. How many aircraft were hijacked, people murdered, bombs delivered, in the name of a 'Free Palestine'? Still, Britain has done it's best. We have despatched our worst living war criminal as a Middle East peace envoy. We can do no more.

We see documentaries about the Nazi concentration camps that give statistics on people killed, incinerated etc.....but don't call them propaganda films.

Earlier today the BBC reported that the casualty rate in the current spat is dead Palestinians: 100. Dead Israelis: 0.

Or is that just BBC propaganda?

This is only because the Israelis (with their Iron Dome defense system) can defend themselves better than the Palestinians can. It's not through a lack of trying, on the part of the Palestinians, (and whoever funds them), that there aren't piles of Israeli corpses too.

As these ethnic cleansing attempts have been happening regularly since biblical times, with all main religious franchises doing their best at one time or another to wipe out the other franchises, does anyone truly think it will end ... unless, perhaps, our planet comes under attack from extraterrestrials and those fools who put so much faith in religion suddenly realise they have to work together to defeat a common enemy.

The Levant has been the birthplace of three of this planet's major religions. Maybe if we were to bury them there too, this world might become a safer place for its human occupants.

Actually if you go back into history we can be blamed for this situation, before the second world war the Jews had no homeland, then the British government set up Palestine as a place for them to live. I believe that the Jews did attack British forces in order to get us out of the area, much the same as the Irish did thus Eire was created.

Correction:- 'Birthplace of three of this planets major 'superstitions' - Let's say it like it is! - Particularly when it is used to justify murder on a grand scale!
