WILLIAM WILMINGTON, GOVERNMENT RECORD HOST: Tonight, on this New Year’s Eve, Israel stood up to Hamas today and declined to make a ceasefire agreement.
You won’t want to miss footage of Israel’s new tanks that look like something out of a science fiction movie. The tanks explode missiles before they reach their targets. It’s a stunning development in weapon technology, one you won’t want to miss.
And, remember Cynthia McKinney? She’s the woman who, while in Congress, struck a Capitol Police officer. She believed in conspiracies surrounding the 9/11 attacks and she went on a boat to Gaza. We’ll have Robert Robertson with us from the Good Foreign Policy Institution to talk about this move and what it could mean for civilians in Gaza.
Hello, I’m William Wilmington in for Dick Dixon. We’re glad to have you with us on this New Year’s Eve. It’s time for another edition of the Government Record here on the Government News Network.
KAREN QUIGLEY, GOVERNMENT REPORT CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): In the rubble of Gaza, a child dead. In the hospital, a family grieves. In the street, a mother holds her baby and cries. These are the scenes that Hamas has created which has led to the erupting violence in Gaza.
