Gaza: This is so sad

Dr Izzeldin Aboul Aish, a Gazan, doctor, widower and peace activist, lost three daughters and a niece in bombing Saturday. 

The Israeli public witnessed his misery when he phoned into a television station – he had been providing staff there with first-hand accounts – and sobbed for help during one of the main evening newscasts. 

"Could somebody please come to us?" he pleaded.

The anchor just held up the phone, and for three and a half minutes Dr Aboul Aish's wailing was broadcast across the country.
