Palestinian Funeral Oopsie

I'm amazed that nobody's thought to blame "Da Joos" for this yet—20 people were injured and 3 killed at a funeral for a random Fatah thug, when suddenly amongst all of the traditional Palestinian funeral festivities, there was a fairly sizable explosion.

An explosion at a funeral procession on Friday killed three people and injured at least 30 others, as hundreds of mourners marched through Gaza City, hospital officials said. The source of the blast was unknown and it was unclear if the device was triggered or set off accidentally. (AP Photo/Adel Hana)


The Reuters caption is, admirably, somewhat less ambiguous:

Yeah, who would've guessed that it would be a bad idea to bring hand grenades to a funeral anyway?As an example, this is what I would generally consider to be "conduct unbecoming a solemn funeral:"

Classy.

Why does the world keep looking the other way as these spoiled brats continue to act like animals, anyway?
