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?
