Bomb Disposal Experts, Italian Journalist Killed by Gaza Blast

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Three members of a bomb disposal unit were killed in Gaza on Wednesday when an Israeli artillery shell they were attempting to move exploded, officials said. The blast in the northern town of Beit Lahia also killed 35-year-old Italian journalist Simone Camilli, who was working for The Associated Press. He was the first Western reporter to die in the current conflict. AP translator Ali Shehda Abu Afash also died in the blast, and 38-year-old AP photographer Hatem Moussa was among two seriously injured, the news agency confirmed. Earlier, police said four bomb disposal experts had died but this was later revised to three.

Israelís new lawyer: Hillary Clinton

Israel’s new lawyer: Hillary Clinton

by Peter Beinart

She sees the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through Bibi’s eyes, which could be the reason she gets so much wrong.
Who’s the Israeli government’s best spokesperson? Ron Dermer? Michael Oren? Bibi himself? Nope. It’s Hillary Clinton. In her interview on Sunday with Jeffrey Goldberg, Clinton offered the most articulate, sophisticated, passionate defense of Netanyahu’s conduct I’ve heard from a government official on either side of the Atlantic. Unfortunately, important chunks of it aren’t true.

Let’s take her claims in turn

Who are these two young men? Tariq Abu Khdeir the Palestinian American beaten to a pulp by Israeli police recently (captured on video), and Lucas Koerner an American who is Jewish, who met a similar fate 2 years earlier while speaking out against the occupation on a visit to Israel. Video of Lucas' arrest is in the article below. Both were at the recent protest in Washington DC
