Israeli Skunk Spray Effectively Dispersing Violent Arabs (2 Videos)

The "aromatic" spray is shot from a water cannon, soaking the target in gut wrenching, putrid smell.
Israeli Skunk Spray

Back in March, Israel unveiled a new kind of crowd control, affectionately known as Skunk Spray.

The “aromatic” spray is shot from a water cannon, soaking the target in gut wrenching, putrid smell. But, believe it or not, as smelly as it is, the Skunk is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and so harmless you can drink it without fear of harm. Except, according to reporters who caught a whiff of it, it kind of immediately makes you wretch.

There’s been a worldwide interest in the new weapon. Freedom through chemistry!

The opposition is fuming: B’Tselem put out its own video showing Israel’s armored tanker trucks fitted with water cannons which spray the foul fluid at Palestinian protesters.

You can’t please some folks: the IDF units switched from live to rubber bullets – and they complained. Now that there are no bullets at all being used – they’re still complaining.

  1. John Winter says:

    If the Fakestinians feel humiliated, according to the speaker in the video, that is because no one can be martyred.

  2. Nic Basore says:

    i sure hope so!

  3. Thomas Sharp says:

    It sure would make it easier to pick them out of a crown after the cowards had removed their masks and tried to blend in.
    Should be another peace prize coming to Jewish scientist this year.

  4. Yechiel Baum says:

    the spray should be permanent, absorbed into the skin and body so that no one will want to get near them and easy to identify and prosecute them in court to avoid their saying they are not guilty. The smell to match the crime. Would also reduce their population avoid procreation!

  5. You made me laugh but an excellent idea. Actually I have had a dog and a cat sprayed by skunks and the smell is awful .I used tomato juice and it helped.

  6. See http://www.allahislam.com for more about the enemy of civilization.

  7. Les Le Gear says:

    Should use bullets.

  8. Stan Brin says:

    Oh, poor Palestinians, you are sooooooooo abused! Our hearts bleed borscht for you. Next time, don't shoot or throw rocks!

  9. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Btselem and meretz will not be happy until the Jews are all dead! I presume the UNHRC is already preparing a condemnation statement.

  10. Barb Adelman Seidman says:

    Skunk spray. How appropriate.

  11. Grace Acosta says:

    I don't know – how would you tell them apart from their usual smell? ;-P

  12. Grace Acosta says:

    I like the way you think! :-D

  13. If it is anything like real skunk spray the only thing that will get rid of the smell is Tomato Juice baths, believe me I've had dogs that loved "playing" with skunks.

  14. This is brilliant. Not so sure that our neighbours would be so passive in the defense of their borders! Can't understand the comment as to how this passive method infringes on their dignities and rights when their behaviour (throwing rocks, etc) certainly does not reflect a dignified person. These people aren't animals but if you behave like one, you will smell like one ;).

  15. Why would you want to improve their smell?

  16. Morgana Leslie says:

    Honestly, how is this any different than they usually stink?

  17. I think it's great.
    If both sides would only shoot water and stinky food instead of bombs and bullets, there is hope for this planet…

    Maybe someday they will send each other flowers.

  18. Lela Trope says:

    Yes…this is the best. Now we will know who they are from a great distance.

  19. Anonymous says:

    Brilliant!

  20. Anonymous says:

    If judiciously used (not so sure that's possible if by the government) this has endless application: illegal immigration, in lieu of the death penalty, to improve the smell of New Age kids, to distract sniffing dogs, to spray would-be attackers, etc. Brilliant.
