Storyline

In a rough style, by way of unique footage, the brutal consequences of modern wars are exposed. The film also depicts the ability of women and children to handle their everyday life after a dramatic war experience. Many of them live in tents or in ruins without walls or roofs. They are all in need of money, food, water and electricity. Others have lost family members, or are left with seriously injured children. Can war solve conflicts or create peace? The film follows three children through the war and the period after the ceasefire. Written by Anonymous

No need to spoil, it is rotten.
22 February 2015 | by tracersublimateSee all my reviews

"Tears of Gaza" offers NO facts about the real facts or reasons why Israel would even attack Gaza in the first place. I know history.

This film has NO content. It is purely propaganda. Thus, a lie. There are far too many web sites and videos out there now that just lie, and even incite violence against innocent people - people that are just defending themselves and homeland against attackers, murderers, terrorists. Gaza is attacking Israel FIRST, killing innocent people. Look for that fact in this film - you will not see it. Just lies.

We all have had enough lies from the Natzis in Germany WW2. You know what happened to them. I suggest you get wise and avoid that kind of fate.

If you watch, fine. But while you watch, keep in mind the points I have made. Open your eyes and stop accepting lies. From all sources.

Have a nice day. TRACER
