Al Jazeera coverage of Qana bombing


This posting, courtesy of Link TV's Mosaic, shows a news report from Al Jazeera. The images and stories are graphic, gritty and all too real. Watch how the Qana bombings were presented to the Arab world--this is not a watered down version like those shown on U.S. television.

The limp, broken bodies of children are shown being pulled out of the rubble. A young girl is interviewed. Two of her sisters are in the hospital, and five of her other siblings were killed. Her cousin, his wife and their five children were all killed. She says, "Thanks a lot to Condoleezza Rice for doing this to us. Our hopes were destroyed."

Watch this, and then try and explain why a ceasefire is a bad idea.
