A couple of things to point out in this picture:1.
Yes, that is Sheikh Yassin
in the background. You know, the one who called repeatedly for the total destruction of Israel
The green map/blob/statue thing you see in front of our Gesturing Old Lady is the state of Israel. Which, of course, the locals in this picture would refer to as "Occupied Palestine."
As soon as they push the Jews into the sea, of course.
As translated by my pal Jeha
(via low-bandwidth e-mail), the poster in the background reads "the martyrs of freedom
," and the map, along with naming the (Arabic) towns there, declares that "palestine is ours
When local populations support
the terrorists amongst themselves—be they called "martyrs
," "freedom fighters
," or whatever else your imagination fancies—bad
things happen. When civilians are cynically used as human shields
, the civilians are destined
to get hurt.
This is a reality of war
. A reality, apparently, that is too advanced for our more "tolerant" and "understanding" denizens of the press to come to grips with.
