Israel controls access and message in Gaza assault


news.yahoo.com

JERUSALEM – The Israeli military took about a dozen foreign reporters on a rare foray into the Gaza Strip Thursday, a day when a bombardment killed the Hamas security chief and an Israel shell landed on the United Nations headquarters there.

But the journalists saw none of the action. Their 30-minute drive from an army base near the border took them to an unpopulated area where a commander arrived in a tank, gave a statement and answered a few questions. They saw no troops, no combat.

If Israel's 2006 war with Lebanon was a media free-for-all, its offensive against Hamas militants in Gaza has been a model of media control.

Journalists are barred from freely entering the war zone. They are granted only limited access even when embedded with Israeli troops, which is rare. And military interviews, few and far between, have been tightly controlled.

Well when you go on a genocidal rampage (or ethnic clensing if you will) you certainly don't want those pesky media types.

Israel claims its unsafe in the area. Maybe that explains why they have shot at:



Friction between the government and the media heightened Thursday after Israeli attacks in Gaza struck two high-rise buildings housing international media, injuring two journalists in a Palestinian media center two floors above the offices of Reuters news agency.

Bullets also flew into the office of The Associated Press in another building several hundred yards away, entering a room where two staffers were working. No one was injured.

So whats our tally now at?

Congrats to the IDF you have now killed almost 1100, destryed at least 2 schools (UN and the American one) bombed a hospital, killed over 250 kids, shot at reporters
Kudos, really. it takes a special kind of animal to support such atrocities.

Your seething one sided editorial is anything but breaking news.

Next time write a letter to your local paper.

But I did right here. If you might take the time to step away from your own rhetoric and pull your head from well..... you know where you would note that news submissions require the poster to put thier own take on the news which I did.

I realize it lacks the polish of your rhetoric that you seem to be getting from your well worn AIPAC talking points memo but really now.
