One of the arguments to justify criticism against Israel was the number of deaths. “Over 1,300 Palestinians died, among them, 400 minors, and only 13 Israelis”, condemns Brieger. The numbers are different, according to Hamas’s confession. Moreover, and considering the disgrace of losing innocent lives, exposing numbers as an argument is an act of manipulation. During World War II, between 1.2 and 2.1 million German civilians died, compared to 60,000 British. Were the Nazis the victims because more Germans died than British? Another partially true accusation is that the media could not cover the battle, because Israel forbade it. Access to the foreign press was limited from November 2008 via Egypt and from Israel. On Dec/29/2008, the Supreme Court of Israel ordered that journalists could enter Gaza. The Palestinian security forces encouraged all foreigners (especially Europeans and North Americans), including humanitarian aid workers from international organizations, to leave the land of Gaza “for fear of new kidnappings”. For this reason, Israel informed that it could not guarantee the lives of professionals. From January 2009, the Islamist TV from Qatar, Al-Jazeera, informed that Ayman Mohyeldin and Sherine Tadros were in Gaza reporting before the war. BBC had a local Palestinian producer, Rushdi Abu Alouf. One of the few “serious” reporters that covered the events from Gaza, explaining the complex situation, was Lorenzo Cremonesi from Corriere Della Sera from Italy. Another argument was that the United Nations schools were attacked by the Israeli army. The truth is that Israelis were being shot from within these facilities. The terrorists of Hamas transformed the schools into a legal military objective.
