Iraq's Hell on Earth, IDF Soldiers Against Occupation & World Protests Against Israel

Abby Martin reports on the thousands of activists across world cities protesting the continued Israeli aggression in Gaza, highlighting demonstrators in Paris being met with gas and rubber bullets after a French ban on pro-Palestinian demonstrations. Abby then reports on the more than 5,500 civilians killed in the first 6 months of 2014, and speaks with journalist and author, Dahr Jamail about his recent article breaking down the events that have taken place since the US withdrawal that have led to Iraq becoming a near failed state. Abby then speaks with Suha Najjar, a resident of Gaza City, discussing the horrors of daily life on the ground in Gaza since the Israel's latest offensive and debunks the 'human shield' rhetoric often heard from the IDF when justifying indiscriminate killings of civilians. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Avner Gvaryahu, a member of 'Breaking the Silence' an organization made up of veteran Israeli soldiers that seeks to educate people on the counterproductive effects of the continued Israeli occupation of Palestine.

The attack on Gaza was facilitated by the Israeli Government using known murders, that they pretended was a kidnap case, to crack down on Hamas (that denied involvement) and elicit an armed response.

The fighting in Gaza was set-up to happen.
