Video-The terrorist group Hamas fired at least 117 rockets into Israel Sunday, CNN reported. But major U.S. media have censored Palestinian’s anti-American reaction to this ongoing attack on an ally. In one Al Jazeera America video, children cheered on the rockets, wishing they would land in the United States.
For Al Jazeera’s “America Tonight,” foreign correspondent Nick Schifrin reported during an older segment entitled “Israel invades Gaza” on July 17. “Palestinian fighters fire a barrage of rockets,” he noted, with two flying towards Tel Aviv. As the camera focused onchildren clapping and cheering, Schifrin translated, “They tell me they hope they land not on Israel, but in the United States.”
