CNN Confirms Israel Broke Ceasefire First

CNN had an interview with Dr. Mustafa Barghouti, an independent Palestinian legislator, in the early days of the violence in Gaza. Dr. Barghouti was trying to explain to his interviewer Rick Sanchez of CNN’s newsroom that contrary to what Israel’s PR has been broadcasting on the American airwaves, it was them who broke the ceasefire first.

In a rare deviation from their pro-Israel stance, CNN (not CNN International, but the CNN that airs in the USA) did a little investigation of this (i.e. a Google search) and found out that indeed Israel broke the truce in early November by carrying out an attack inside Gaza.

In order to protect himself from a possible flood of Israeli and pro-Israeli complaints, Rick Sanchez had to have the camera man actually film the news articles while he read them on air just to prove that many credible news sources reported on this incident early on.

Here is a video of this event.

Kudos and Thank you Rick Sanchez for your courage and taking an honest journalistic stance. Also thank you to Dr. Barghouti for his continuous interviews trying to give a moderate Palestinian perspective on the Gaza issue to anyone willing to listen.

  1. THANK YOU Mustafa.
    THANK YOU Sanchez.

  2. I wish there were more like him out there.

  3. Certainly, this totally goes in contradiction to CNN’s usual biased representation and take on issues regarding this latest massacre in Gaza–and pretty much anything related to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict!

    It’s good you brought this up.. I posted it on my facebook to give my American/Western friends, those whom missed viewing it, an opportunity to hear voices that are legitimate, unlike the usual manipulative disinformation they get fed mainly through fox, and CNN.
