Gaza Onslaught : Israeli Government Defies it's own Supreme Court

Today, Israel's government defied it's own supreme court's ruling, which yesterday ordered the government to allow the international media into Gaza to report on the effect of the air strikes on Palestinians.

At the time of typing this, Israel's government is still deliberately defying it's own supreme court's binding legal order.

We wonder why?

Hej Richard,

Thanks for your greeting over at Appletree. Happy New Year to you too.

We've been asked to spread news about this URI around:

Reports from Israeli human rights groups

In their own words:


In light of the fighting in Gaza and in Southern Israel, Israeli human rights groups are sending out ongoing updates about the impact on civilians. Our aim is to inform the Israeli public of events that are not being covered by the media. Each group is posting the information at its disposal, which is necessarily limited and cannot be taken as a comprehensive picture of the human rights violations currently taking place. Since the fieldworkers cannot access most locations at present, much of the information is being conveyed over the phone. The data has been verified to our best ability under the circumstances."

I'll bet that, if there is still a human race in 2100, Israel will still have the Palestinians under foot.

Heil Israel

It's my understanding that the Israeli's have allowed 8 fogeign reporters into Gaza

...At the urging of the High Court of Justice, Israel agreed Thursday to allow eight foreign journalists into Gaza when it reopens the border crossing with the Hamas-ruled territory, the Justice Ministry said.

The decision fell short of a High Court proposal, made a day earlier, to let up to 12 international journalists into the Gaza Strip, and was deemed "insufficient" by the Tel Aviv-based Foreign Press Association, which had petitioned the court on the matter.

The move was the latest in an ongoing legal battle between the government and the group representing foreign journalists in Israel, following a two-month-old ban on foreign correspondents entering Gaza.

Israel originally imposed the blanket ban following an upswing in Palestinian rocket attacks, but the issue took on added urgency in the wake of this week's massive assault against Hamas targets in the Strip."

Erdla, thanks for that link.

A'Jay, I did hear a government spokesman say they "wanted" journalists in there so the Palestinians couldn't get "their exclusive" reports out. What I havent heard yet is that any international journalist have actually been let in. You know politicians - they say so much - and lie so much.

I am glad we have the internet. At least, however small portions of truth that come out, one can find it all in the alternative news outlets...

The cooperate media is extremely silent about it all in the US...
