   Tears of Gaza: Post details  in Arabic

Quotes:
It’s important that these things get shown because the media tries to make us into puppets who will believe all the accepted propaganda about events. We have the experience of WikiLeaks and the atrocities in Iraq.
 
We spoke to Lokkeberg and producer Terje Kristiansen, her husband. The documentary ought to be shown widely; it reveals the “openly criminal character” of the imperialist powers, as their conduct increasingly recalls “the fascist atrocities of Guernica and the Warsaw Ghetto.”
 
TK: That’s why casualty figures don’t give the true emotional sense of the crime. The main purpose of the film is to document the emotional impact of being the victim of a war. Images can change history. And as difficult as this film is to watch, it is a mild version of what we have in our archive.
For example, they use bombs around the children that look like toys.
