365AM: A Story About the War You Were Never Meant to See

Posted by Phoenix Woman on November 13, 2010

Especially if you’re an American:

The backstory:

In the winter of 2008, two days after Christmas, Israel launched one of its deadliest and most controversial wars. Whilst preventing the people of Gaza from fleeing the territory, it proceeded to rain missiles down on them using some of the most sophisticated weaponry available. Trapped with them, were the only two foreign reporters inside Gaza at the time. They found themselves locked inside a war zone as the only voices able to reach the English-speaking world. This is their incredible, and as yet untold, story.

Ayman Mohyeldin, a 30-year old American citizen and Sherine Tadros, a 29-year old British national lived through the war – for three weeks reporting for Al Jazeera English amidst an international media blackout.

Now, they want to tell others what they witnessed – raw and uncut. 365 AM will stimulate audiences with exclusive footage and images captured in different formats from professional cameras to mobile phones. The film draws on powerful images from over 100 hours of footage, mostly from Al Jazeera English, and never-before-seen personal video of Ayman and Sherine during the war.

    Oh, yes. That notorious anti-Semite Lord Richard Goldstone did a report on this for the UN, in which he concluded that Israel used grossly disproportionate force, aimed at punishing an entire population for the criminal misdeeds of a few Palestinians launching (wildly-inaccurate) missiles at Israeli civilians, inflicting on the Palestinians 100-fold more deaths than Israelis had suffered.

    He’s such an anti-Semite that he prosecuted Nazi war crimes and considers himself a Zionist.
