I've been told that, during the War, it was important to hear the early news, because anything later had been got at by the various Ministries and made much more cheerful: in other words, the censors got at it. Last night, unable to sleep with a ricked back, I listened to the BBC Overseas Service, and an important news item concerned a report from the Israeli Human Rights organization: apparently, anyone seriously sick in the great Gaza concentration camp can, because of the zionist embargo, get decent medical treatment only in 'Israel' itself. Apparently, however, those taking this route have to agree to spy for Shin Bet or be refused medical treatment. One such person, a patriot, is now almost totally blind as a result of refusing to collaborate. It was interesting that, when the switchover came at 5.30, our local equivalent of AIPAC had already seen to it that no such 'antisemitic' truth was carried by BBC 4, and I had to search hard to find the story on page 14 of the Guardian. What is the position like in the 'States? Are you allowed to hear about facts like this? Reactions on here do suggest that you are allowed even less information than we are about the zionist treatment of the native people of the Colony: we tend to hear only when a British person is shot protecting Palestinian children from murder or the like. Obviously I have my own opinions about the zionist Occupation, but I'm more interested in the free flow of information here. Any detail gratefully received.
