Noam Chomsky - Gaza: One Year Later

Gaza: One Year Later by Noam Chomsky

On 27 December 2008, Israel began one of the bloodiest attacks on Gaza since 1948. The three week assault killed some 1400 Palestinians and 13 Israelis. One year later, little to no rebuilding has taken place and the siege in Gaza continues.

Gaza is a maximum security prison, something like Guantanamo, basically a torture chamber under a constant harsh and brutal siege.
A seige is an act of war; a total seige is a major war crime.
And it's not dramatically different in the West Bank where just about everything going on there is in violation of international law. This talk by Noam Chomsky, given on 6 December 2009, is titled Gaza: One Year Later.
