A video has surfaced, posted to the website The Commentator, that purports to show several Palestinian Arabs hiding behind members of the press while hurling rocks and firebombs at the IDF. Taking cover behind a low wall, the attackers use members of the press, which number around 5 or 6, as cover to attack the Israeli soldiers.

Watch the video below:

  • What happened to unbiased reporting. Where have all the honest reporters & journalist gone. BBC is an Arab mouthpiece so are these journalist who prostitute their profession.

  • Sophie Osnah

    Is this video ALSO seen in public media?….NBC…ABC…CBC…FOX?

  • IF THE PRESS WANT TO BE CLOSE TO THE ACTION, LET THEM BE EMBEDDED WITH THEIR FRIENDS. THEY’LL HAVE PLENTY OF “EXPOSURE”.

  • It’s time for a major policy shift in many areas.

  • What kind of journalist are they?Obviously they know what is happening behind their backs and they do not try to stop this behavior by the Palestinians or at least walk away.
    The action of the so called journalists speaks louder then wards about which side of the conflict they favor.

  • It is time for the media in the UK, especially the BBC, the Guardian and the the Independent to tell the unbiased truth about what is happening in the middle east. Israel is the only true ally of the west, yet the media seem to regard it as the enemy and support those who wish is to place us under their rule, in other words, to impose upon us, Islam and sharia law. They want women to remain uneducated, veiled and to be “circumcised” (which actually means, that their genitalia will be completely mutilated). And the morons at the BBC, the Guardian, the Independent,together with the boycotters, those who declare Israel to be an illegal etc, damn our only friend in that area and give succor and to support to our enemies. Which country allows complete freedom of religion to all, regardless of belief? Israel. Which country protects all places of worship? Israel. In Israel, any person, regardless of race, religion or colour can rise to the top, as have Muslim High Court judges, for example. How many such Jews have risen in the same way in Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Libya, Algeria? Strange to say, they are all muslim countries.
    Time to take off your blindfolds, look at the facts and see who are your friends and who are your enemies. AND DO IT NOW!

  • Last year, a young Jewish-American fool protested his arrest by Israel police for incitement because of it violated his ‘Freedom of Speech’ rights. Should we be surprised Americans believe their civil rights travel abroad with them? They seem unaware of the difference between ‘Freedom’ and ‘License.’

    Israel has no duty to host foreign reporters intent on destroying the Jewish state. That is not ‘Free Press.’

  • When journalists permit combatants to use them as cover,
    they are part of the problem and should be treated as
    such. At best, they should be barred from the field of
    battle; at worst, blasted along with the cowards hiding
    within their presence.

  • At Jenin it was an Associated Press photographer who told the Palestinian gunmen of an open escape road.

    At the Church of the Nativity if was the LA Times reporter and the Associated Press : they created a disturbance that served as a distraction which permitted several “peace activists” to break into the church and furnish the gunmen with additional supplies.

  • Spelling error in photo caption.

  • Bernard Ross

    If Israel lets them get away without shooting them it is their own fault. I would not serve in an army which does not allow me to kill my attacker, man woman or child. Any attack of any kind should be allowed to be shot. then the attacks will end. Thsy do this because they know the israeli govt will tie the soldiers hands.

    • Sorry to disagree with you even as I completely share your emotional posture. As an individual, one certainly wants to act effectively to protect one’s self. But nations have more generalized needs, including sometimes the need to constrain individual protection for the greater benefit of the entire nation. Israel gets terrible press – and resulting international condemnation & isolation – from any acts which are seen as contrary to Western values. Shooting reporters is clearly one of those actions, as we have already seen in a few incidents. Israel must act in sometimes regrettable ways to ensure its own national best interests even when that occasionally conflicts with the instincts & even the safety of individual citizens.

  • the press should be completely barred from all of Israel. Make clear they will be considered civilian combatants at best when they are around terrorists and they have every right to be liquidated along with the scum they are empowering and defending!! Too bad I was not in command of that seen, I would shell that section and leave them all to agonize to their deaths so they learn there is a heavy price for supporting evil in the Holy Land!!

    • Kris Kristian

      Allow me to refer to the Mohammed Al Dura affair.

      This was a set up by the press.

      Strange that the cameraman and journalists were at the scene before anything happened.
      And this seems to be the method used by the press.
      They get well paid for stories, esp. if it is against Israel.
      After much investigations, it was proven that there was no blood, nor bullet holes at the scene.
      But the damage was done.
      Why are the Arab terrorists not condemned every time they murder Jewish men wone and children. Instead, they are hailed as heroes, schools, rods and parks are named after those low life scum.
      Why was Jordan never called war criminals after one of their soldiers murdered dozens of Israel school girls on an outing, in a bus?
      Now Jordan wants to free this “hero”
      Time for Israel to warn the jounalists that if they are found to worlk in collusion with the terrorists, they will be shot.

  • What we in the west would call the actions of riotous behaviour, but under Islam a justifiable gesture of piece and good will.

  • Fredric M. London

    Well, at least we now realize why journalists are so unbiased in their reporting (except for what they write and broadcast, of course).

    However, it is encouraging to see Israel’s new peace partner in action.

  • This shows that these cowards will hide behind anyone including women, children, civilians and now the press. It would take more courage to stand up and speak than it does to hurl fire-bombs from behind a wall with journalists protecting them like this. This makes me wonder if Islam can even function without having things to hide behind, this seems like a common theme. What would Hamas, Fatah, or Muslim Brotherhood do in the same situation? Nice pink scarves cowards the real men on the other side of that wall aren’t afraid of you!

    • Sonia Willats

      But it is clear that the press agreed to the setting in the first place, so the victims-in-waiting are the IDF who know they cannot fire on journalists. The press is a disaster these days, and they hide behind a tradition of being free and fair, which they patently are not!
