Melbourne, Jan 8 (ANI): Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher or Joe the Plumber, as he was known during the 2008 US presidential election campaign, has been given the task of reporting on the ongoing conflict in Gaza.
Wurzelbacher has been given the job of reporting on the fight going on between Israel and Hamas by conservative US website pjtv.com, and he says that he will let 'Average Joes' tell their side of the story.
"It's tragic, I mean it really is," News.com.au quoted him as telling Ohio television station WNWO.
"I don't say that in any little way. It's very tragic, but at the same time what are the Israeli people supposed to do?" he said.
Wurzelbacher also added that he is not concerned about heading into a warzone for 10 days.
"Being a Christian I'm pretty well protected by God I believe. That's not saying he's going to stop a mortar for me, but you gotta take the chance," he stated.
"If given the opportunity to do some good however minute it may be, or could be something really good, you gotta take that chance. You have to do it," he added. (ANI)
