Mike Whitney on the Invisibility of Palestinian Suffering

"The account of Palestinian suffering and victim-hood rarely finds its way into the mainstream press, but in the present case, it has been completely ignored. In fact, none of the media provide any context for the current invasion at all. Israel’s blockade of food and lethal provocations have been going on for months, and yet, the accounts from Gaza would have the reader believe that history began on the day that the Israeli soldier was captured. "

Mike Whitney will be speaking at or about 5 p.m. at the Lake Forest Park Snow Chataqua on Saturday. It's at: July 15 - at 17840 40th NE in beautiful Lake Forest Park -
