CNN’s Staged Video Updates: The Norwegian Connection
European LGF reader “morning star” points out another interesting connection between the Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert, and “freelance photographer” Ashraf Mashharawi:
Please note that Mads Gilbert knows or is part of a group in his home town Tromsoe in Norway, who long have planned to make a film together with Ashraf Mashharawi (the famous “freelance cameraman” in the video).
This group, which promotes friendship between Tromsoe and Gaza, also met Ahmed Mashharawi, a film maker with whom Ashraf Mashharawi has worked together, at a film festival.
This means Gilbert and Mahharawi probably knew each other before this incident.
And more connections surface; here’s a 15-minute documentary at the Danish site counteract.tv, titled “From the Camp.“ The credits contain several names that will be familiar if you’ve followed the threads:
Cameraman & Director: Ahmed Mashharawi
Script: Raid Dawoud
Editing: Ashraf Mashharawi
Narrator: Paul Martin
