A Film Screening Eyeless in Gaza

Tue 26 September 2017

Description from Eyeless in Gaza website:
“They’re calling it a massacre.” “Children and civilians comprised the vast majority of the 200 killed.” “Israel is targeting… hospitals.” These quotes come directly from international media reports on the 2014 Gaza War. All of them are incorrect, yet they were used to create the narrative that the world, to a great extent, accepted. A narrative that saw Israel as the aggressor. Interviewing Israeli and Palestinian combatants, administrators and civilians, along with analysts, journalists and aid agency officials on the ground, Eyeless in Gaza sets out to find out how this narrative arose… and arrives at a very troubling conclusion.

Following the screening will be a discussion between NGO Monitor President Prof. Gerald Steinberg and UN Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer.
