Palestinian Terrorists Get New Body Armor

Via Hot Air, Snapped Shot alerts us to new body armor being used by using by Palestinian militants. Lets see if I can provide you with a close-up view of that armor.


Note that it is now available in two-ply.


And yes, they are being used as body armor as the original photo shows.

At least three visibly armed militants are hiding among more than a dozen civilians in this photo, including the man on the far right who is targeting Israeli soldiers.

Like their brethren in Gaza and in Lebanon, terrorists in the West Bank are willing to use civilians as shields, and though it is hard for our western mind to understand, the civilians themselves seem content with that arrangement.

This battle left two so-called civilians dead and 11 wounded.

Somehow, that doesn't upset me as much now as it once might have.

To us, its disgusting. Unfortunately its a completely different thought process for them. There is a huge cultural gap and one problem I see is that Americans (U.S.) try to put our values and ideas over to them thinking they will fit into the same mold. They don't.

As you will notice in the above photos those kids are watching to see what happens. Kids are Kids around the world. Those little guys look up to the bigger guys. What is totally immoral about the whole thing is, instead of trying to protect their younger folks, they are encouraged to watch and participate. Religion of tolerance, yeh right!!!

I tend to agree FP. If my boy knew something like that was going on down the street he would be the first kid to get there to watch - and of course he'd want to be right up front. The difference is, that any adults standing around would yank the kids away from the front and take them out of harm's way. Come to think of spectators to this type of thing in the US would be ducking for cover - and rightly so. Maybe this guy was shooting at a melon to ala Pallywood.

I think it's important to understand (in the global sense) why they are shooting in the first place. And to understand that they are actually "shooting back" after decades of being "shot at".

Ok Abu, thanks for pointing that out. So the Pallys haven't shot at anything for decades, is that right? Funny that, I kind of remember it differently but if someone with an islamic pseudo says so, it must be true. You guys aren't allowed to lie to Dhimmis, right?

And now that Hamas & Hizb'allah have provided them with sub-machine-guns to replace their stones, it's only natural that they make use of them. That's the 'global sense' that you're talking about?
