Anderson Cooper Live from Gaza - Sunday, November 18, 2012, 7PMET

Anderson was back on the 7pmET edition of CNN's Newsroom with anchor Don Lemon.  During Anderson's first report a large explosion took place behind him and he ducked down, but laughed it off and kept right on reporting ~

Anderson was back a little later and joined in a discussion with Don and Maen Rashid Areikat, the Palestinian Rep. to the U.S. ~

The first video is kind of scary. Anderson, totally calm and matter-of-fact, "That was a rather large explosion."

Reminded me of one of Anderson's Sarajevo clips. In one of them, he's talking about the bombs and right then there was a nearby explosion. Anderson, unfazed, says, "Like that one." and keeps on with his report.

Favorite moment in the first video was when Dan Lemon said the were working on geting a slo-mo review of the blast, "...which appeared to be over your left shoulder and you can definitely see the flash." Anderson, "Is this a video of me jumping out of my skin?"

In the second video, kudos to Anderson for responding to the Palestinian diplomat and taking up the Isreali defense.

That was a HUGE explosion, wow. He seemed to keep relatively cool afterwards, considering. What a welcome back to field reporting that was...
