Challenge the Frame: The Relative Damage of Gaza Invasion v. Qassam Rockets

Peruse the photographic outcomes of the "Crisis in the Middle East" from this site. Please note: graphic imagery not for the faint of heart. Thanks to Tim Musser for sending this along.
This video is somewhat dated (from 2001), but gives some context for the problem of narrative framing of the conflict. It is, undoubtedly, pro-Palestinian and leftist in its focus, but in such a way that basically follows the international legal definitions of occupation. Again, don't take uncritically what this says, or what I say, but start asking the questions that challenge the frame. Challenge the frame!
