VIDEO: Israeli Government and Press Knew Three Missing Settlers Were Dead For Weeks

Israeli journalist and film maker, Lia Tarachansy from The Real News Network discusses how the Israeli government, military and press knew that the three missing Israeli settlers had been dead for weeks but cynically imposed a media gag in order to carry out a military campaign of illegal collective punishment against the entire Palestinian population for more than two weeks.  Tarchansky notes the primary aim of Israel's military campaign is try and break Fatah/Hamas unity agreement, despite having no concrete evidence of Hamas' involvement in the abduction. 

Tarachansky also points out that Palestinian anger towards the Palestinian Authority has reached unprecedented levels, and that the Israeli government is now trying to instigate a third intifada in order to legitimise its military actions in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza.
