Warning - you will definitely not see this on MSM.

It's not all that tough, tho. Try to hang in for the entirety.

If this doesn't affect you, I hope that we shall never meet.

3. I recommended and I can't watch. BUT I do want to post a reminder
that both sides in the greater war have killed innocent people of all ages:

Here lies an Israeli child - an innocent life taken in a terrorist attack inside Israel.

The caption reads:

Unnamed child victim of
Palestinian suicide attack on No. 2 Egged bus, Shmuel Hanavi, Jerusalem, Aug 2003




More on the other side here:

I'd hate to see us become useful idiots for either side of this issue. Killing innocent people/children is wrong, no matter the avenue.

Flame away.

4. You're right. Although when we have to start weighing piles of
children's bodies, those killed by America and Israel will dwarf those of the Osamas and Hizbollahs of the world. The scales clearly define our guilt.

You should work to stop the bigger problems first.

7. Agreed, especially America.
And, it's horrible that we are paying for it in taxes and human life. I hate funding their murderous money making ventures.

5. Speechless
This video left me in tears. Very intense and I feel at a loss. I am ashamed of our current administration and I feel like a insignificant blade of grass. I have just called the white house, phone number 202-456-1414 and left a message for GW on his comment line. I called and did speak with a live person. I voiced my concerns and asked for the war to STOP!
I really don't know what else to do... Please stop the madness....vote democrat in all upcoming elections...... :dem:

Yes, it brought me to tears and this would never be shown on MSM.

I will pass this along.

Cheers

14. K&R - man, if the MSM showed this, there would be a ceasefire NOW
Fuck, I am so pissed off.

I can't type.

How can we stop this? I can't sit here and do nothing. I just don't know what to do.

17. I think the video maker should have shown....
...some of the carnage in Israel, or even our exploded Marine barracks where 241 members of a peacekeeping force were blown apart in 1983 - just to make it a little bit even.

They made (the before shots of) Lebanon look like a children's peaceful Candyland, without a hint of the militant terrorist groups which have sheltered and operated out of there for many years. That comes dangerously close to being propaganda.
