Here you go. All I could think was wow.
Even the girl that got punched in the face was clapping for him. A true patriot!

I know, if this was on U.S. TV, he would have been burned at the PC stake.
Not saying I agree with unneeded violence, but it just goes to show how totally different other cultures are.

Why didn't any of them twat the guy after he hit a lady?.
Prank or not it shows he is a coward call me old fashioned but twating a lady is real low.
So is hitting anyone but guy v guy that is fair.
Also it just was not a funny prank just silly.

The first guy seems he was more annoyed at the fact that he was deceived into believing that he was appearing on a German/Egyptian show, rather than an Israeli one. He also seemed quite calm until the producer dude walked in and started hassling him.

It doesn't worry me though. I think the whole thing was scripted anyway, lol.

MEMRI TV has American "influences" on top of it.

Never hurts to know who you might be dealing with.

I would be pretty upset about the situation too! I don't condone violence against woman (or at all for that matter) but call a spade a spade the guy was being singled out by what he believed to be an Israeli TV show prank or not it was just plain stupid.

What he said at the end "you brought it upon yourself" was spot on and he could have said that to a man woman or child I would agree

You may be right. I guess that's one method of teaching people how they 'should' behave. LOL

Can you speak Arabic? Or dispute the translation in any way?

Wow! Such hatred ! It's hard to fathom as an American, where we don't have war on our soil. I watched a documentary about Palestinians vrs Israelis ...how they used to be friends and neighborly ..even watch each others kids... until Governments started stepping in.
I can't even begin to gauge the toll war and military action takes on people. I'm just a stupid American.

No. Just pointing out possible American influences at the parent company that did the shows.

The "candid camera" references led me to think the shows were just like a comedy show.

Not sure the "attacks" were genuine or staged.

I would compare to the old American show "Candid Camera" comedy show.

That's my take.

I'd say a very astute American.
To be able to see that actions have consequences.. Well, most people I know don't get that nowadays.

That could be the case, but I've seen a million American prank shows and very few have ended in brawls. And none of them were about race.

Wait, this one was:

True.

The Middle-East Nationalities are more passionate.

This could be real.

Do you mean that perhaps it's real media show, but the media has begun to infiltrate and take control in the same way media takes hold of us?

Perhaps over there it just doesn't work so great ...people have a-lot more to be angry about and maybe they won't be numbed down as easy.

(atleast not until they have cable TV, Netflix ..and maybe not bombs flying around in the neighborhood)

Well we do know they have plenty of videos and cellphones and whatnot.

I always thought the media everywhere was a control tool.

There's been "theories" about memri tv being a propaganda outlet for some time.

There is no mistranslation that can make up for that kind of behaviour. Sorry.

They are a "non-profit"

I know what you're saying. I was just trying to shed light on how astounded I was to see this. And if you look at memri's other videos you will see exactly that.. A bizarro version of the U.S. If you will.

? I never suggested a mistranslation ?

But maybe we need to actually verify is the sub-titles in this video are really from memri.

The youtube seems to be from another source.

Could be edited.
