Earth history is much deeper, than one could imagine, and in order to analyze and really understand how the Earth evolved during millions of years, when humans were not existent on the planet, it is important to apply scientific knowledge and methods that would allow to see the past through the means and tools, not available for unarmed human eye. We should be extremely grateful to the Earth Science for the knowledge and experience we possess and acquired through the discovery and use of the historical facts and understanding of the path that our planet has undergone to be in the state it is now (Moller and Tasset 1967:123).
The fact is that Hamas intimidation is largely beside the point because the actions of Palestinians are beside the point: Most reporters in Gaza believe their job is to document violence directed by Israel at Palestinian civilians. That is the essence of the Israel story. In addition, reporters are under deadline and often at risk, and many don’t speak the language and have only the most tenuous grip on what is going on. They are dependent on Palestinian colleagues and fixers who either fear Hamas, support Hamas, or both. Reporters don’t need Hamas enforcers to shoo them away from facts that muddy the simple story they have been sent to tell.
