A Lebanese television reporter took media bias to a new level when she threw a stone over the border at Israel to protest the Jewish state.
The Middle East Media Research Institute discovered the clip from Al-Jadeed Television that originally aired on January 19 during which reporter Nancy Saba said that “the Israeli enemy had the audacity to fire tear gas at our Lebanese army.”
She then went on to say, “From here, I retaliate against the Israeli enemy.”
Saba then picked up a stone and threw it demonstrably over the border, saying she was retaliating “with a stone from all of Lebanon.”
“This is Nancy Saba for Al-Jadeed TV,” came the dramatic sign-off ending her report.
Edward Said, the late Columbia University professor, was caught by a photographer in 2000 on the Lebanese-Israel border throwing a stone toward Israel to protest the Jewish state of which he was a fierce critic.
