In a recent episode of RT’s “On Contact,” Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges discusses Israeli war crimes committed against the people of Gaza with Max Blumenthal, director and writer of the documentary “Killing Gaza,” and Dan Cohen, the film’s cinematographer and editor.

Hedges says, “Israel’s policy of demographic engineering means that it must, in order to retain its Jewish identity, segregate or ethnically cleanse Palestinians, whose numbers compromise that identity.”

“We’re throwing back the reality of Gaza back into the American information space,” says Blumenthal, “in order to show Americans the hell that their government has created.”

Cohen adds, “I see Gaza as a manmade intentional hell for what Israel considers nonhumans.”
