Israel WMD attack on Gaza
Israelis, always looking for new ways to kill Palestinians, are accused of launching an unprovoked waters of mass destruction attack on Gaza:
Israel has opened the floodgates of one of its dams in the eastern part of the Gaza Strip, flooding Palestinian houses and causing severe damage.
The Israeli authorities opened the dam's floodgates without any prior warning or coordination with local authorities in Gaza, stunning the residents of the area, the Press TV correspondent in Gaza reported late on Monday.
Israeli authorities deny opening any floodgates, attributing the disaster to an act of Allah - heavy rain preceding the flood. There was flooding in many parts of the area, including the Sinai, with Egyptian authorities able to resist the urge to blame Israel.
As expected, Antony Loewenstein accuses Israel of intentionally flooding Gaza. Loewenstein is continually critical of journalists who write about events not observed first hand, those, for example, who write about Gaza from the comfort of their Jerusalem hotel rooms. Yet here we have him passing comment on events thousands of kilometers away. But it doesn't really make any difference where he does his writing; he still wouldn't get it right.
