I Nominate...for this Year's Darwin Paula Stern

...The story you will likely hear will assign all the blame to Israel and none to the Palestinians. It will refer to him as a "victim" but won't admit that he, like most Darwin Award winners, are often the victims of their own stupidity...and in this case, this young man was not only a victim of his own stupidity but a victim of the culture in which he was raised. He was not, in reality, killed by the jeep or the soldiers but rather by the society in which he was raised...that is the true story here, the one you will probably never hear on CNN, BBC, Sky and NBC and ABC and Reuters.

Paula R. Stern..
A Soldier's Mother..
14 June '15..

An Arab terrorist decided to throw a Molotov cocktail at an army jeep. I'll start off by saying that the soldiers inside the jeep that was hit by the flames of hatred were not hurt.

I'll add that the army will probably be able to fix the jeep, though on second thought, perhaps not.

And finally, I'll add that the Arab who threw it...well, he's definitely seen better days.

In fact, though according to the news here, I'd say he will not even see tomorrow, never mind better days.

I'll post the next picture but before I do, I'd like to add a thought and a question.

The thought first - this was a strong vehicle. It overturned. Amazingly enough, the soldiers inside were not injured. It is unlikely they intentionally caused the vehicle to crash and roll. That was caused by the hail of rocks and firebombs.

As a parallel thought, I'll add that a few months ago, an Israeli car was firebombed and an 11 year old Israeli girl was severely burned over most of her body. It will take her years to recover, multiple surgeries and more...her parents' car was destroyed. The difference, I guess, between an armored vehicle and regular cars. Those are my thoughts as I see the picture above and the next one as well.
