Following Up on Lorenzo Cremonesi
Maariv interviewed Lorenzo Cremonesi, the Italian reporter who first broke the story of Gaza's inflated casualty count. See Solomonia, who posts a translation by Contentious Centrist:
"After the rest of the journalists entered the strip," he said, "I found they were angry with me. They asked me; why are you serving the Israelis? What bothered them was not the quality of the information I provided. I felt that their anger and need to emphasize Palestinian suffering, were fueled by the fact that they had been prevented from entering [Gaza]."
In January, Cremonesi reported that the Palestinian death count did not exceed 500 or 600, and that he saw many empty hospital beds throughout the strip. Palestinians claim more than 1,000 deaths. Professor Richard Landes posted an English translation of the original Italian dispatch.
