Video Karma: Defender of Assad Regime Dies On Air

Egyptian journalist Adel Al-Gogary

According to Al Ahram, Egyptian journalist Adel Al-Gogari, 56, died on Wednesday night while discussing the crisis in Syria during a live televised broadcast on Iraqi Al-Hadath private channel in Media Production City, Cairo.

Al-Gogari, editor of Egypt’s Al-Anwar newspaper and Al-Ghad Al-Arabi magazine, suffered a blot clot following an intense phone debate over Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s regime with Brigadier-General Hossam, a member of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), who Al-Gogari had called a “fugitive soldier.”

Al-Gogari, a Nasserist, also accused the FSA of being funded by Israel during the show.

Al Ahram reports that Al-Gogari was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

The late journalist’s family announced on Facebook that they will receive condolences on Friday in his birthplace Abu-Suweir city in the canal governorate of Ismailia.

Al-Gogari recently appeared on Al-Jazeera Arabic’s controversial program “The Opposite Direction”, where he zealously defended the Syrian regime, claiming that what is happening in the war-torn country is “an international conspiracy” against Al-Assad.

    Your headline is in very bad taste! Video KARMA? You may not agree with him or like him, but how dare you pass such a judgment? And this is no guest writer – this is your own staff! I hope other readers are as appalled as I am.

    This was not a very nice person…..actually I would use the word 'evil' – defending Assad.

    Oh, we make our own headlines in house. Quite proud of this one, really. Anyone who wants me dead — as this guy did — when they return their ghost to their maker, I give thanks.

    Who knew it could happen so literally? Literally live on Television.

    HaShem is the True Judge that this should happen at this particular time and place for all to see.

  9. Paul Besterman says:

    Yori Yanover Giving thanks is one thing but we should never rejoice in the suffering of others, only celebrate our survival , else we are as bad as they.
