Angry journalists, who initially boycotted the session, describe subcommittee's claims to be part of a 'witch hunt,' and slam Israel's 'authoritarian' efforts to clamp down on the media.14:27 09.02.16 | 2 comments
This is an attempt to paint Israel and Sharon as righteous. Sharon's "unilateral" pull out left the arid gaza as an open prison with Israel controlling the exits and at the same time expanded settlements and occupations in the West Bank. Hamas had repeatedly offered an indefinite ceasefire and even observed a ceasefire for 15 months. Israel only chose to heighten pressure by cutting supplies and squeezing the economy of Gaza. The Arab League had reiterated its offer several times but Israel chose to ignore the offer of full political relations.
