Glenn Greenwald interviews Max Blumenthal, author of The 51 Day War. Originally published on The Intercept.
One year ago today, Israel invaded, bombed and shelled Gaza, and continued to do that for the next seven weeks. According to the U.N.
, at least 2,104 Gazans were killed — 1,462 of whom (69 percent) were civilians, including 495 children. A total of 6 Israeli civilians, and 66 soldiers, were killed. The shockingly high civilian death rate in Gaza included the now-iconic imagery of four young boys from the same family being killed by Israeli warships
while they played on a beach in front of a hotel filled with foreign journalists.
