Ironic Moment as Rocket Interrupts French Reporter
Tisha Be' Av Walk (around the Old City Walls) ^ | 8/3/2014, 8:38 PM | By Gil Ronen

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.

The reporter is a total scum bag.

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.

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!

Oh how halpless Hamas is, food security in this "safe zone"
WHOOSH! Rockets from the so called food security area.

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?

Propaganda is already at work on YouTube.

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!

Maybe you need a few more towelhead “youths” to come into France and start blowing things up.

Did they edit the video to show bombs going off? Or the real rockets being fired?

Holy crud this is disgusting, even of France. They are all enemies now.

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

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.

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****.

Thanks Not gonna take it anymore.
...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.

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.

Can't Hamas work on making quieter rockets? That way the reporters can't escape from the strike area when the retaliation comes flying their way. Sorry, Gallagher Fenwick, you won't be propagandizing for Hamas from a smoking crater in the ground. Too bad, how sad.
