Skip to comments.Ironic Moment as Rocket Interrupts French Reporter
Posted on 08/03/2014 11:23:41 AM PDT by Not gonna take it anymore
A reporter for France 24, Gallagher Fenwick, was reporting from Gaza Friday and explaining how its residents' food security has been affected by the fighting there, when something unexpected happened.
"This was a rocket,, a rattled Fenwick told his audience, this was a rocket, rockets were just shot right next to where we are standing, so I'm not going to stand here very long because usually there's a strike just moments after this occurs.
The occurrence proves Israel's contention that Hamas fires rockets from among civilians, using them as human shields and manipulating any civilian casualties that are thus incurred, in order to make Israel look bad.

SHOULD have been a candidate for a Darwin Award.
“There will be no peace in the Mideast until Arabs love their children more than they hate the Jews”.
Golda Meir. I heard she made a great chicken soup.
That series of rockets was launched from so close by that he had to know they were there.
We even see what is possibly one of the Hamas rocket launch crew run into the background of the video.
The reporter deserves to be greased by the Israeli counter battery fire.
The girl behind him came right out of her she , LOL
"We moved our base camp last night and were now positioned literally
within feet of the river. Have been sitting here watching the border
patrol patrolling in their riverboats all night and all morning..."
Counter-battery is a beautiful thing...except when it’s coming in on top of you. :-)
The key question is whether this report will see the light of day on a US network where the constant drumbeat is of Israel firing on hapless Gaza citizens. My money is on NOT!
The media there needs to be killed while sympathizing and promoting the Hamas propaganda.
This is the same piece of excrement from “France 24” who did another story earlier the same day called “UN, US condemn deadly shelling of Gaza school” standing outside the school. Any bets on him changing his outlook of the conflict once he realizes he was being used as a human shield?
Three Israeli teens are abducted and killed by Palestinians, escalated to this, with the world blaming the Israelis. And now I’m to believe there’s someone named Gallagher Fenwick reporting for France 24? What planet am I on?
I went to YouTube to get the direct link for this video and found that the vid is posted twice. The posting I linked above has this title:
"Reporter Interrupted By Live Rocket Fire In Gaza"
But at the top of the search results, the exact same video is posted with this title:
"HORROR: France 24 Reporter Interrupted, Ducks for Cover live on TV as Israel Rocket Strikes"
The Moslem/Hamas/Gaza propaganda machine is in high gear!
Take a look at post #16.
(Anchor talking to reporter) “You go Gaza”.
Maybe you need a few more towelhead “youths” to come into France and start blowing things up.
Holy crud this is disgusting, even of France. They are all enemies now.
We helped you every time to fend off the hordes. You can now F-off and fend for
yourselves when they come for your heads while your citizens are unarmed and helpless.
Whoa! Watch this similar video until the end. Look at the woman in the white pants who runs into on-camera shot. Isn’t that same woman in the video you posted a link to doing the same thing? It must be that the two videos are of the same moment and place: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWGIR6s_nDE
Here’s the SAME MOMENT as filmed by a different reporter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWGIR6s_nDE
Thank you for posting! Hilarious - Gallagher (of the weird high-tone accent) almost got decapitated by Hamas. He was standing in a buffer zone which tells you something as well.
Actually, a fairly balanced follow up .
Of course there is a bit of cover their butts about whether the rockets were remotely controlled. The reporter on the scene was fully aware of what was going on with the rockets.
Yep. Same launch, different angles.
Gallagher ,what was that ? Nothing it was just my Hamas body guards testing the Rockets I gave them
To a cynic who loves irony and exposing hypocrisy & propaganda, this is a gift from God.
I hope there’s counter-battery fire video; payback’s a b****.
Move over Baghdad Bob, here comes Gaza Gallagher!
Don’t worry I am sure he later went back to reporting how bad the Israeli’s were
reporters are happy to lie for “the cause”
...explaining how its residents' food security has been affected... "This was a rocket,, a rattled Fenwick told his audience, this was a rocket, rockets were just shot right next to where we are standing, so I'm not going to stand here very long because usually there's a strike just moments after this occurs.The only bad part of this is, the Israelis weren't quite quick enough on the response.
Earlier bit of agitprop from Fenwick, fairly low-key by anti-Israeli agitprop standards:
Evacuate to Where? The same agitprop posted by at least one FINO, gosh, where did he get the idea?:
Nasrallah threatens missile attacks:
The Arabs (not Israel) are besieging Gaza, and Iran and Allah provide for Gaza’s defense:
Listen again, Rock. The Reporter’s name is Gallagher Keltwick. The anchor said “You go Gallagher,” right after the reporter said he wasn’t going to stay because of counter fire.
I listened twice because “You go Gaza” doesn’t make sense in the context of what was happening.
But the Israelis never did respond. Not at all. Listen to the report on post # 23. The France 24 reporter said the Israelis choose not to respond.
They're so evil, those Israelis. They leave all those poor Gazans who expect to get blowed up not blowed up!
I noticed too that he didn’t mention that the missile or missiles were fired at Israel by Hamas. I hope he goes home in a body bag. Or better yet, several.

I knew it was coming and it scared the crap out of me.
Why is a reporter for a french network, reporting in english?
Better yet -
Why is a Froggish reporter reporting in English being posted to a YouTube account run by a Russian News Agency (RIA)?
I always say that God has a great sense of humor. The timing of this rocket fire could not be more perfect.
