Scott Horton Interviews Mel Frykberg
Mel Frykberg, journalist with Inter Press Service, discusses her article, “War Clouds Back Over Gaza;” the escalation of violence with rockets fired into Israel, the assassination of Hamas commanders and the fruitless back-and-forth on “who started it;” Gaza farmers and fishermen shot at while working in “buffer zones;” how Israel’s constant changes to Gaza’s banned goods list confounds NGOs bringing aid; and how a united Palestinian front could force the United Nations or European Union to finally recognize a Palestinian state.
