+ I invite you to tune into a powerful and informative portion of a recent Democracy Now!

DN! blurb: "Amira Hass is a regular columnist with Israel’s Ha’aretz newspaper and the only Israeli journalist to have spent several years living in and reporting from Gaza and the West Bank. On Tuesday, Hass was awarded the 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Women’s Media Foundation. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour described Hass as “one of the greatest truth-seekers of them all.” Hass joins us to talk about covering the Israel-Palestine conflict, the Goldstone report on the Israeli assault on Gaza, and the need to understand the issue in the context of military occupation."

You can see or hear this portion of DN! or read the transcript

The American people are terribly misinformed about the plight of the Palestinians who live in the occupied territories. Please be open to another take on what's happening.
