Israel denies it has a "shoot to cripple and maim" policy against Palestinians, but abundant evidence exists to support this claim. In this 20 min. podcast, members of We Hold These Truths look into these claims. Sources like the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, tend to corroborate these claims, for example, in their article, "Is the IDF conducting a kneecapping campaign in the West Bank?" Another example is the Washington Post article, "Blasted limbs, broken dreams." Also, referenced in this podcast are these articles: "Israel Shooting to Cripple & Maim," "Israel Continues with its Shoot to Cripple & Maim Policy in Gaza" and "Inhuman Cruelty in Gaza Exposed by BBC & TRT World."
The New York Times has done something remarkable by producing a 17 minute video, investigation report about the killing of Palestinian medic Rouzan al-Najjar during a protest in Gaza on June 1, 2018 as reported in their article, "A Day, a Life: When a Medic Was Killed in Gaza, Was It an Accident?" Rouzan was not protesting, but rushing to aid a wounded demonstrator. According to Mark Regev, Israeli ambassador to Britain, "... and we [Israel] only use live fire in a measured and surgical way." David Keyes, an Israeli government spokesman assured us that, "Israel only targeted people who are actively engaged in violence." And Michael Oren, an American born Israeli and a former Israeli ambassador to the US, claimed, "We [Israel] have a very specific record of every shot fired." Also, be sure to watch the 11 minute video by The Real News, "When The New York Times Investigates Israel’s Killings in Gaza, That’s News" for an excellent analysis of NYT's article and investigation. Also, please read Chuck Carlson's article, "Israel Shooting To Cripple and Maim."
It should be intuitively obvious to the casual observer that the US main stream media (MSM) is exceptionally partial to Israel in their reporting. When the New York Times ran a front page story,"A Day, a Life: When a Medic Was Killed in Gaza, Was It an Accident?" readers should ask, "Why?" In this insightful, 11 minute report on The Real News, the significance of the NYT article is delved into with Mondoweiss journalist, James North, who wrote the piece, "‘NYT’ report on killing of Gaza paramedic Rouzan al-Najjar is a big step forward, though flawed."
The War in Syria is NOT a “civil war”; is NOT a “popular uprising,” but is a US and allies’ long-time, planned and orchestrated regime change war, using terrorists and mercenary, proxy, armed groups. This is what American housewife, Janice Kortkamp concluded after four years of intensive study on the issue, and after several fact finding trips to Syria. Janice recounts her incredible journey to understand what's going on in Syria in this 1 hr. 25 min. video presentation she made to the Syrian American Forum in Boston.
