Footnotes in Gaza chronicles the real story behind an obscure incident during the 1956 Suez Crisis. Sacco wants to know: Was the killing of 111 Palestinians on a single day in Rafah a deliberate massacre by Israeli forces? (I also probed him on his personal politics and the Israeli side of the story).
