Le ultime parole famose
Oliver Stone girò un documentario nel 2002, tra Gerusalemme, Tel Aviv e Ramallah. Eravamo agli inizi della seconda intifada esplosa due anni prima. Tra i protagonisti intervistati c’erano Netanyahu, Arafat, Peres e Ehud Barak. Vale forse una visione come documento storico.
Here is a quick friendly reminder (or correction you may say):
This is an old photo from 2009. I saw this going around on the internet lately, uncredited and misleadingly captioned. Not going to name but even some NGOs and news sites share this as if it was taken recently in the Gaza Strip during Israel’s latest so-called ‘Operation Protective Edge’. However, as you might find after a little research, this picture was taken in Jabalia in the northern Gaza Strip in 2009. Just few months after Israel’s then 22-day ‘Operation Cast Lead' (2008).
Here is its caption: “A Palestinian boy plays with a pink balloon in the rubble of his house, which was destroyed during Israel’s 22-day ‘Operation Cast Lead’, in Jabalia, in the northern Gaza Strip, on April 10, ”
Also, another thing is its photographer — either no name given or completely false name given. But, actually, it was taken by Ashraf Amra/APA Images.
But does it really matter? For credibility, yes, I think. Other than that, not really. Nothing has changed a lot, except for the names of stolen Palestinian lives and of Israeli military operations.
What has happened to this little boy with a pink balloon? I can’t help but think where he is now, if he is still alive.
Molto spesso negli scontri tra Israele e Palestina vengono riportarti dai media i soli nomi delle vittime israeliane. Quelle palestinesi, di Gaza, sono invece spesso presentate solo come numeri di una macabra stastisca.
Allora ecco che Internazionae da “Il nome e l’età dei 132 palestinesi di meno di 18 anni uccisi a Gaza tra l’8 e il 21 luglio 2014. In nero i maschi, in rosso le femmine.”
