Dr. Shahid Masood on Gaza - Jan 03 2009 - Urdu

Dr. Shahid Masood, GeoTV, covers the developments in the ongoing Gaza crisis. He laments the shameful role of Egypt, Jordan, Saudi, and other Arab countries for their failure to support the poor Gazans and their complicity in the American-supported Israeli aggression.

For basic demographics and number of casualties in Palestine, see IfAmericansKnew and B'Tselem.
