Ali walks us through last week’s report by UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General Pramila Patten, which claims to hold “convincing information” that Hamas raped Israeli hostages. But with no interviews with alleged victims, and no identifying information about alleged witnesses, does the report tell us anything new? And if the most conclusive findings of the report are to cast doubt several rape claims, why was it reported by the New York Times as uncovering new “evidence” — at least before they walked back their headline? And if Patten admits she did not conduct an “investigation,” what does it claim to prove? But first, Ali gives an update on what’s been happening this last week in Gaza, including an update on the horrific flour massacre.
