Spirit and courage like this demonstrated by a Palestinian teenager in the West Bank are not new. Victims of victims is apt – excepting only the oldest Israeli politicians in the Knesset may fit the description of victims. The following generations are making their own decisions based on lousy ideology.

Our own politicians will not defeat them no matter how much aid they provide to Israel’s government.

    I’m not sure it’s terribly clever to compare Israel with Nazi Germany. I’d rather follow Said’s line that Palestinians are “the victims of the victims”.

      You’re probably right. I’ll tweak it. I shouldn’t post when I’m feeling especially pissed off. I get that way thinking of my friends who survived the destruction after the Warsaw Ghetto uprising failed – ignored Zionist ideology and didn’t move to the Promised Land.

      Thanks, bro’.

      I think it’s one of those form follows function experiences. After I saw the photo in the news, I went looking for a larger original.

      Just Google “slingshot, west bank” and you’ll find dozens of similar and identical photos. Mussa Quwasma probably just shot bursts and chose the image at peak stress.
