CNN correspondent pulled after calling some Israelis 'scum'

A CNN correspondent who tweeted on Thursday (see above) that Israelis near Sderot who cheered the bombing of Gaza are 'scum' has been pulled from Israel and reassigned. This is from the first link.
Diana Magnay, who is in Israel to report on the latest developments along the Gaza frontier, observed on camera how a group of Israeli gathered near Sderot applauded as the IDF rained missiles down on the Gaza Strip.

In a subsequent post on her Twitter feet, she noted that she was threatened by some of the Israelis who warned her not to air footage of their reaction lest her car be "destroyed."
She angrily referred to the group as "scum" before the tweet was deleted from her account altogether.
 Here's Magnay's report. Let's go to the videotape.

As noted above, Magnay has been reassigned.
“After being threatened and harassed before and during a liveshot, Diana reacted angrily on Twitter,” a CNN spokeswoman said in a statement to The Huffington Post.
“She deeply regrets the language used, which was aimed directly at those who had been targeting our crew," the spokeswoman continued. "She certainly meant no offense to anyone beyond that group, and she and CNN apologize for any offense that may have been taken.”
The spokeswoman said Magnay has been assigned to Moscow.
I agree 1,000% with those people who cheered. Here's why.
Sderot has been tortured by over 10,000 rockets from Gaza fired over the last 14 years.
The IDF is finally being allowed to do something about it. And they shouldn't cheer?

I think an important point is that the Israelis are cheering at missiles that are intended to kill terrorists and their rockets and such. The Arabs cheering at the missiles being sent into Israel are cheering at missiles sent to kill civilians.

Reassigned? Oh! No, no! That's not good enough. She should be forced to sell her NBA team and... Oh wait. That only applies to rich, white guys. Nevermind.
