Gaza victims

CNN just ran a piece by reporter John Vause in Gaza on the innocent victims of Gaza, featuring several interviews with victims of recent violence. Were any of those interviews with family members of Mariyah Amin, or any other victim of Israeli violence? No, they were all victims of the recent fighting between Hamas and Fatah.

According to Vause, there have been eight fatalities from the Hamas-Fatah infighting. According to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, there have been 25 Palestinian deaths this month, and 98 serious injuries. Those 123 Palestinian casualties of Israeli attacks, like the Amin family, weren't even worth a mention on CNN. We wouldn't want to trouble the minds of Americans with the thought that their (our) tax dollars are being used to massacre people not just in Iraq and Afghanistan, but in Palestine as well.
