This is the 6th in our look back at the summer 2014 Gaza conflict.

On August 26, 2014, the active Gaza fighting stopped with agreement on a ceasefire. How long that lasts is anyone’s guess. Hamas is bragging that it has rebuilt tunnels leading into Israel and its rocket stockpiles and production.

Benjamin Norton is a leading author who favors the boycott movement (BDS) against Israel.

Norton writes for the anti-Zionist Mondoweiss website, as well as a slew of other places on the topic of how bad Israel is. While I don’t agree with most of what Norton says, he certainly is prolific...

Periodically throughout this summer, we are taking a look back at our coverage of the 2014 Gaza conflict.

There has been speculation Joe Biden may run.

There has been speculation Elizabeth Warren may run.

Either of them individually would be a dream come true for the pure theater of it (and with Warren, for some other reasons).
