The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Feel the Flames of Hate

Yup, definitely ready for statehood:

Interestingly enough, wire photographer Mohammed Ballas (the COWARD) caught the exact same second (or roughly thereabouts) on film as well:

WOW. Talk about the exact same instant. The angle is different but it is the exact same instant.

What are the odds that two photogs, at the same street, at the same spot on the street, at the exact same split second timing take a photo of the exact same thing?!?!?

The first pick looks like the photog was kneeling or "lower" than the second photog's pic - which looks like he might eithe be standing or at a higher level than the first pic.

What do you want to bet that this is the same guy with various cameras mounted and hooked up to a common activator. Or, am I giving too much technological know-how to these palestinian terrorist sympathizers?

Oh, and would a response by the IDF in this instance be considered self-defense by this photog?

wouldn't be self defense for palestinians inside their own cities to take out an israeli military vehicle, or is it everything palestinians do is considered terrorism by some people, even attacks against the military?

Strictly military targets is one thing—but there is a pervasive doctrine coming out of the Palestinian Territories which advocates that, because of "compulsory service," all of Israel is a military target.

I have a distinct problem with this, and will continue to call anything carried out pursuant to this doctrine as "terrorism," because that's exactly what it is.

Attacks which are strictly on military personnel in the line of duty could be classified as strictly military attacks, yes. And when said military retaliates and crushes the attackers, it is a justified response. Hiding the attackers behind civilian clothing does not absolve them of their culpability.

Hope that clarifies,
