Fox News reporter runs for cover at Israeli school targeted by Hamas rocket

Fox News reporter Leland Vittert found himself running for shelter this morning in Ashkelon, Israel as sirens were sounding. Outside of the chaos of the moment, what makes this clip important is that Vittert was at a school and the rocket landed near it. You can even hear the rocket hit from the shelter they are in.

He also notes that Hamas has gotten smarter, firing 8-10 rockets at a time overwhelming the Iron Dome.

    I wish one of those rockets would hit the Dome Of The Rock.

  • Jaels_Song

    A sad statement that Israel’s schools have to have bomb shelters.

  • Rshill7

    I’m watching this right now on TV. He said in the USA we have snow days and kids don’t attend school. In Israel they have rocket days.

  • Stehekin912

    Oh that’s OK. No worries…MSNBC told us
    “the rockets are essentially very ineffective, they rarely do damage and that the response from Israelis is disproportional to the threat they’re under”


  • I sure hope Leland Vittert is getting a LOT of danger pay!

  • I wouldn’t get into a rocket-shoving match with Israel if I were Hamas. Israel will win that one . It only remains to be seen if Israel follows their air attacks up with a ground war. I hope they do not, because that’s what Hamas wants, to draw them into costly street battles. Pound the heck out of Hamas by air and don’t let up. If they feel enough pain, Hamas may get the message.

    I say invite to that STUPID reporterette from BSNBC to do a LIVE Shoot from the school.

    Maybe they should only do interviews with the propaGAZAndist that are willing to set up in Ashkelon, Ashdod, Sderot.

  • Glenn’s special message for Israel

    I want to tell you what it’s like to live in most of Israel right now.
    A missile is fired by Hamas in Gaza…
    A siren goes off.
    You get 15 seconds to find shelter.
    I want Americans to think about what that means.
    If you lived in a place where missiles were fired at you…
    Hundreds a day…
    And you would get just 15 seconds to hide…
    How would you live?
    Stop what you’re doing. Run to a basement. A shelter.
    And if you can’t make it inside…
    Lie flat on the ground with your arms over your head.
    That’s life in Israel right now.

      May God bless Israel!

      Forget the lapdog media. This is the real message that we all need to see. Thanks, Wolfie, for posting this!

      • YW! Glenn Beck is like a breath of fresh country air in a smoke filled room. Fox News made a HUGE mistake letting him get away! I’m sitting here trying to imagine what it would be like with a real media, doing real reporting. trying… Nope, can’t do it. 🙁

        • Linky1

          A real media-it did exist…once. But then, so did a Model T Ford. Sigh…..

      • conservative58

        Linky1 and Wolfie — Thanks for posting. Very powerful message!

      Powerful Wolfie.

      Satan has been trying to kill the Jews for centuries and the Lord has always protected them. He will this time too.

      • tvlgds

        He sure didn’t protect 6 million of them against Hitler.

        • They’re still here… Hitler and his cronies are in Hell. I count that as a win.

  • sjmom

    It is only the grace of God the rocket landed where it did. This shows me Heaven is directing the rockets. I think at this point if I was in charge I’d be sending in the tanks to level Gaza.

    • StrangernFiction

      No need for tanks, artillery would do just fine.

  • tvlgds

    Usually it’s Steve Harrigan! And who can forget the Scud Stud- Arthur Kent, during Desert Storm.

  • stage9

    Iran moving sleeper cells into America?

    It’s time to start preparing ourselves apart from the government. We’re on our own now.

    • StrangernFiction

      Fedzilla IS a sleeper sell.

  • “Hamas has gotten smarter” lol
    oxymoron right?

    The Terminator: The Hamas Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line November 20th, 2012. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Hamas begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

    Sarah Connor: Hamas fights back.

    The Terminator: Yes. It launches its missiles against the targets in Israel.

    John Connor: Why attack Israel? Aren’t they our friends now?

    The Terminator: Because Hamas knows the Israeli counter-attack will eliminate its enemies over here.

    The President: Excellleeeeennt

  • StrangernFiction

    That was a hell of a firecracker.

  • Lord, that is hard to watch. I can’t imagine having to live like that. My heart breaks for this nation Israel.

  • American children have ‘snow days’ and Israeli children have ‘rocket days’. How sad is that?

  • Yazz55

    Comparing a rocket day to a snow day is just absurd. A snow storm doesn’t blow up your house or scare the s^!t out of you. A snow storm doesn’t create mental trauma that those people are experiencing from the arab terrorist rocket attacks. While some kids genuinely look forward to a snow day off from school, no one looks forward to a rocket day.

  • notice that the bomb shelter shown is not big enough for more than about 20 kids. Hence, no school. Getting to school is also, of course, a danger.
