As you’ve probably noticed, I added a web stream from Gaza to the sidebar.
The stream is shot by Ramattan News Agency, which is located at the 9th Floor of the Shawa & Husari Building, Al Wahda Street, Rimal, Gaza City.
I assume the feed wouldn’t last very long in case the conflict broadens into the center of Gaza City, since it is the IDF’s interest to shut down these live feeds.
The web feed is set up via Nana10, an Israeli media company.
This is what it looked like a few days ago.

“We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
I challenge any reader to show me one instance of Arab mass condemnation of the killing of Jewish children as there already is in Israel for the deaths caused in Gaza – even at present, in the midst of a battle that seems to have a wider-than-usual consensus within a nation known for its inability to foster a consensus (there’s even a joke: ask 2 jews, get 3 answers).
the killing of children is inexcusable – even if, as in the case of the IDF, it’s inadvertent.
the mere targeting of children, even when using ineffective scuds, is fiendish.
hiding behind a child and letting him/her be killed in your stead is the act of a coward who should eternally burn in hell.
i somehow doubt even the most downtrodden of gazites would argue.

Umm no. This is not what happens when the feed goes dead…because I can see Ramattan on CNN but with no sound. Israel took over this feed.

oferdesade, you and the IDF are truly naive [I know they aren’t] if you believe that firing missiles at the sixth most densely populated region on Earth would not result in mass civilian casualties. Israeli politicians and military commanders know very well that the attacks they launch will result in civilian deaths, and yet they show no discretion. That is why they are scum.
