This probably has to be one of the strangest videos I have ever watched, on so many levels.
Egypt has its own incredibly strange version of candid camera airing on Al-Nahar TV. Apparently, they thought it would be pretty dang funny to prank some guests, including gun-wielding Egyptian actor Ayman Kandeel "Tuhami", actress Mayer El Beblawi, and actor Mahmoud Abdel Ghaffar, by telling them they were being interviewed by an Israeli TV channel, not a German channel as they had been told. Which of course they hadn't.
As you will see in the bizarre video, the men actually become so enraged they resort to physical violence. Ayman hits the "producer" and then slaps and pushes the female interviewer, Iman Mubarak, so hard she falls to the floor, he then proceeds to trash the place. At one point it almost looks as if he's about to pull out his gun. You'd have to be pretty stupid to provoke a man with a gun, which they were well aware he was carrying. but I guess this is their type of very odd humor. Because it's quite obvious their intention is to provoke the guests.
El Beblawi is engaged in a very nasty anti-Semitic, anti-Israel harangue when she too is told the interview is for an Israeli TV channel. But rather than resort to violence, she attempts to immediately end the conversation.
Ghaffar's violent overreaction to being informed he was on an Israeli TV channel almost seems fake, but Arab males do seem to have a major anger management problem, compounded by the fact they abhor the Jews so much.
Here are some choice words from the guests:
Ghaffar : “You brought me someone who looks like a Jew... I hate the Jews to death.”
El Beblawi: "In that country [Israel] they are all liars. They keep whining all the time about the Holocaust, or whatever it’s called." “These people sawed off [the head] of John the Baptist. They are the slayers of the prophets. What else can we say about them?” “Allah did not curse the worm and moth as much as he cursed the Jews.”
Kandeel just swears. A lot! And calls them deceivers. And you've got to love the typical Egyptian male chauvinism. Check it out.
Enjoy the strangeness.
