Inside Story

Is Israel’s war on Gaza a watershed moment in history?

The Israeli military carries out unprecedented slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza while the world watches on.

Israel is driving ahead with its war on Gaza that many have called a genocide.

As the world watches, the Israeli army is carrying out its slaughter without restraint using Western-supplied weapons.

So, is this a pivotal point in history for both the Palestinian people and Israel?
