UK man living minute by minute to bring the truth out of Gaza.  Netroots into action, please spread.  We are the media.

UK journalist and film-maker Harry Fear is inside Gaza and reporting as safety and electricity allows.  Recent interview with RT below.  Late-breaking tweets:

Harry Fear ‏@harryfear

I have no internet. These are cellular updates. I cannot leave my apartment; it is too dangerous.

Harry Fear ‏@harryfear

I admit I fear tonight, even for my own safety; far more than before, as Israel has been targeting journalists and civilians.

Harry Fear ‏@harryfear

I am not injured but we have lost electricity and I heard Israel struck something in my street. The building shook. Goodnight.

Harry Fear ‏@harryfear

135 killed, inc. 34 children - 1100+ injurred, 80% civilians (Broadcasting live at )

The Russia Today interview Youtube description reads:
Film-maker and activist Harry Fear has been in Gaza since the first bombs fell. He says Israel has the capability to avoid collateral damage - but has instead chosen to attack indiscriminately.
In his video report "Martyred in Gaza" one of Fear's interview subjects relates that an Israeli missile which killed and wounded a number of people was followed up by a second missile into the crowd of people attempting to help those injured in the first strike.

Fear's report follows a widely-reported incident in which the child of a BBC journalist was killed by an Israeli missile strike, in his own home with fighting nowhere in the residential neighborhood.  The father is captured mourning his child in a AP photo.

Gaza: The personal story behind the picture

November 15, 2012 ⋅ 9:58 pm

The front page photo on Thursday’s Washington Post tells, in a single frame, a very personal story from Wednesday’s Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip. Jihad Misharawi, a B.B.C. Arabic journalist who lives in Gaza, carries the body of his 11-month old son, Omar, through al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City.

An Israeli round hit Misharawi’s four-room home in Gaza Wednesday, killing his son, according to B.B.C. Middle East bureau chief Paul Danahar, who arrived in Gaza earlier Thursday.

Misharawi’s sister-in-law was also killed, and his brother wounded. Misharawi told Danahar that, when the round landed, there was no fighting in his residential neighborhood...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
