Only In Israel

Burkha and polka dot bikini on beach

Palestinians and Israelis enjoy the Mediterranean sea during the first day of the Eid al-Fitr holiday in Tel Aviv, Israel, Thursday, Aug. 8, 2013. The three-day Eid al-Fitr holiday marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan. One of the most important holidays in the Muslim world, Eid al-Fitr, is marked with prayers, family reunions and other festivities. (AP Photo/Oded Balilty)


I wonder what anti-Israel angle the usual suspects can bring to this. Beach-washing?

The only oppression I see in this photo is the heat beating down on the woman in the burqa. Zionist Death SunTM?

Well, that, and the torture the guy in the blue shirt seems to be undergoing. The question is, is it polka dot bikini woman or burqa woman who is responsible for that?

Update: Couldn’t resist.

    On the beach in a burqa in August made me think of the Bananarama song “Cruel Summer.”

    So much for “Apartheid”!

    There was a lot of Muslim men and women (in burkas) at the Dead Sea yesterday.
    That didn’t stop them from having a swim.

    I even saw a guy stopping at the same petrol station as me, opening his boot to get out his prayer mat, and do the evening prayer in the car park!

    I didn’t take a picture as I didn’t want to be intrusive, but couldn’t help having a thought for all the BDSholes who would have loved that: “Israel forces Muslim people to pray in car park, while Israeli settlers sip on there cafe hafouch in nearby Aroma”!
