Al Jazeera's "Reflections of War"

During the three weeks that Israel assaulted Gaza, Al Jazeera reporters Sherine Tadros and Ayman Mohyeldin were the only foreign journalists inside the territory. This 45 minute special, told in four parts, includes interviews with Tadros and Mohyeldin, as well as clips of stories they filed as the invasion unfolded, and footage not previously aired. Their reflections of the events of each day, of the suffering of the people of Gaza, and of their awareness that the English-speaking world would not know the stories if they did not report them make a taut and compelling program. I hope you will take the time to watch the entire piece, especially because, while the 'story' is quieting down, the reality of Gaza remains chaotic, damaged and oppressed.
