It is a photo that has been doing the rounds on anti-Israel blogs and social media for a while now (at least three years).
A photo of what looks like an IDF soldier grabbing on to the hair or headscarf of a palestinian woman. Or as Trending Central puts it:
Initially, as you can see, the picture portrays an Israeli soldier holding onto a Palestinian woman, presumably because he’s simply an aggressive, occupying bastard. Purportedly, he is even holding onto her hair, even worse of a crime given her submission choice over wearing a headscarf. This guy must really hate Muslims, huh!
Well, not really. For a start, a closer look reveals the soldier is holding on to her jacket.
But here’s the kicker (or should that be thrower).
Yep, that’s the same woman hurling a rock at IDF soldiers or civilians. And she seems to be smiling while doing it.
A photo may speak a thousand words, but it is up to all of us to make sure those words aren’t lies.
Which is invariably the case when confronted with photos from the anti-Israel side.

Update: Definitely reminiscent of the iconic photo of the palestinian boy who wet his pants when apprehended by border police years ago.
Just with less pee.
