No, AlJazeera. No, AlJazeera. I was most distressed to see the child, Huda Ghalyah (who lost her family before her eyes on the beach of Gaza due to Israeli occupation shelling), on AlJazeera. They had her on for a live interview. It was most displeasing; it was most distressing. She clearly and visibly is traumatized, and her accompanying psychiatrist, only confirmed that, although we did not all need to know more details. It was bad, very bad, journalism. She could not talk, beyond yes or no, and sometimes she would say nothing. She would just stare. This was not a proud moment, o Aljazeera. I know that the intentions may have been good, but a child was made to suffer more.
