Holding the Phone

This video shows an Israeli network anchor holding a mobile phone connected to Palestinian doctor Izz el-Deen Aboul Aish, who gave frequent interviews to the Israeli media, weeping with grief just after the death of three daughters as part of the collateral damage of the Israeli campaign. It demonstrates the problems with posting content with such obvious appeals to pathos on the Internet as a document in a plea for peace, however, since a large number of the viewer comments are dismissive of his suffering and abusive to those participating in the heart-wrenching scene.
