It must be Friday again...

Nice, peaceful "youth." More of this "peaceful" nuttiness follows the break.

I love the way the petrol-bomber has tied his headdress around his face. I don't think stones are that big a deal, especially when guards are armoured (and the whole David vs Goliath thing) but petrol bombs are a big no no as far as I'm concerned!

Believe it or not, even with all of the armour, these guys are quite vulnerable. See here, for instance. Drudgery and statistics here.

I used to be able to find photos of IDF soldiers critically wounded by such "peaceful" stone-throwing attacks, but unfortunately Google seems to have caught a rather nasty anti-Israeli bug

The notion of the "peaceful" Palestinian stone-thrower is [i]still[/i] only a myth, unfortunately.

Thanks for taking the time to comment! I look forward to hearing your thoughts more often around here,

Respectfully,
Brian
