Al Jazeera America's first foreign correspondent acts as a human shield for HamasBy his own admission, Al Jazeera America's first foreign correspondent, Nick Schifrin, acted as a human shield for Hamas on Tuesday.
Extremely loud and incredibly close. Air strike targets rocket launchers next to our hotel. #gaza pic.twitter.com/8c8kkNQt39I know, I know, there was no place else to stay.

By the way, does Nick's hotel look familiar?
It's called the Grand Palace (also known as the al-Deira). More pictures here.
By the way Nick, did Hamas ask your permission before they used you as a human shield?
