Sometimes propaganda is so outlandish, it crumbles under its own weight. A case in point: these three elderly ladies walking away from the Shabbaton that was so crazily disrupted by violent, cursing, nasty security forces, hell bent on sanctifying the tenets of the 2-state (“final”) solution at the Oz Etzion outpost this weekend.
The following description, raw, was attached to the image, presumably by the photographer, or by his editors at the photo service we use:
“Jewish settlers walking on the road leading to the illegal west bank outpost of Oz Zion, December 28, 2012. Security forces have left the illegal West Bank outpost of Oz Zion without evacuating the settlers gathered there. According to defense officials, the settlers clashed with the forces and hurled stones at them. More than 100 teenagers are attending a Shabbat meeting in the outpost, led by Rabbi Dov Lior.”
You can just picture these three bubbies clashing with the cops, right? The only chance these fine ladies would actually hurl a stone at anyone would be if they tried to grab a schnitzel off the plate before the Shabbat meal. Otherwise I would say they probably keep their assault on security personnel to a minimum.
