Palestinian Co-Opts ALS Icebucket Challenge


Unless you have been in a cave (or not on social media, same difference), you would already be familiar with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, dumping a bucket of ice water on one’s head or donating to the ALS Association.. Celebrities have joined in on the act, with virality ensuing.

Now palestinian photojournalist Fadi Arouri has found a way to politicize it.

Another disgusting exploitation of a nice gesture.

He’s certainly poured cold water on the notion he might be objective.
