Who Are the Journalists and Who Are the Terrorists? (Video)

Once upon a time journalists covered the news. Now journalists are the front lines for terrorists can shoot at Israeli soldiers before journalists shoot the pictures, but who gets the credits?

Will the real journalists please stand up?

Will the real journalists please stand up?

A new YouTube catches terrorists using journalists as shields as they the throw bombs and rocks at Israeli soldiers, who cannot fire at the attackers without hitting the journalists first.

The video was posted two weeks after Newseum, a museum devoted to so-called journalism, revoked its honor for two cameramen who worked for Hamas’ television station . They were members of the “press” and were considered by Newseum as being killed “in the line of duty.,” which of course is true but begs the question of which duty they were performing.

The same question could be asked of the photojournalists in the video below.

They diligently filmed the shooting and firebombing of Israeli soldiers by terrorists – who stood behind them. The photographers occasionally lowered their cameras so they could give the terrorists clear vision to chance to attack.

In the video below, it is ostensibly clear who are the journalists and who are the terrorists, but it is not so clear if both sides are not actually working together.  If it weren’t for the attackers, the journalists would not be there. And if it weren’t for the journalists, would the terrorists be there?

    Makes you think, very interesting, thanks for posting

  2. This is the best response to films like "Five Broken Cameras".when you think that these kinds of protests have been going on for over 10 years at Billin you understand the plan to build a separate road to bypass this.

  3. They R helping the terrorists they R not Journalists, that for sure!

  4. Tal Algom says:

    Using women and children as human shields while launching their kassam missiles over the southern region of Israel, gives them the "earned right" to use the press (if there is any in this video) as a shield also.. Why not? it is their motto, the press should know this.
