Subject: RE: BS: BDS of Israel 'Gathering Weight.'
Left this as a seperate item - the team seems to have difficulty handling too much in the one posting.
I wonder if anybody watched the half-hour news item on the shooting of fleeing civilians by Israeli troops.
It reported occurrences of groups of Israeli soldiers setting up observation points and killing the residents of the destroyed homes as they scrambled over the rubble looking for their dead and their belongings.
The report was based on the findings of a group of American reporters who interviewed local residents and the bereaved of some of the victims.
Their accounts were backed up by photographic evidence and by a statement that a number of Israeli soldiers have testified to the fact that these events had taken place.
Israel says it will "give the matter serious consideration" - which probably means that the reports will go the same way Bar Tselem has gone.
