Discussions & Opinions on Israel July 23

Media Wars and the Israel/Gaza Conflict - Several guests discuss the role played by the media within the ongoing Israel and Gaza conflict.

Bloomberg: 'Couldn't Disagree More' with FAA Travel Ban to Israel. Update: Update: The FAA lifts flight restrictions for Ben-Gurion International Airport.

Free Speech in Gaza? Reporters with the New York Times and the Independent (UK) interview Palestinians in Gaza. They believe that only some are comfortable being critical of Hamas. Why would anyone living under a terrorist regime, especially during a war, not be afraid to speak openly to the press? Do reporters honestly believe that Palestinians are happy being used as "human shields" by Hamas?

Truth Vs. Lies - Abdullah Al-Arian is an assistant professor of History at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service in Qatar. He is followed by Mosab Hassan Yousef a Palestinian and son of a Hamas founder and leader Sheikh Hassan Yousef. They both join Don Lemon to present alternate perspectives on Hamas.
