In NY, a Palestinian and Israeli detail forgotten war in Gaza — ‘wiping families off the planet’

Last Thursday the New America Foundation hosted a remarkable event: a Palestinian photographer and Israeli human rights worker detailing war crimes during the forgotten war of Gaza last summer. Israelis have been trying to forget about the war since it happened, said the human rights worker, Avner Gvaryahu of Breaking the Silence, and the world media has been helping them to do so. If you think about the last Israeli slaughter, Cast Lead of ’09, the Goldstone Report came out ten months later. This time there’s nothing like Goldstone, so it’s been left to human rights groups and journalists to perform the necessary function, summarizing the atrocities.
