Curious Picture of the Day

A Palestinian man is helped by other men after seeing the bodies of four Palestinian youths at the morgue in Kamal Edwan hospital in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, Thursday, Feb. 28, 2008. Dr. Moaiya Hassanain, a Health Ministry official, said the four victims were civilians under the age of 16.

You may have noticed that the palestinian man “being helped” has Hebrew writing on his t-shirt. I can confirm that this is a Mafdal t-shirt, Mafdal being a right-wing, religious Zionist Israeli political party.

Update: Our gardner hires Arab workers, and my wife tells me one of them wears such a T-shirt. When she asked him whether he knew what it meant, he replied in the affirmative, saying he liked to bring a smile to his Jewish clients.



My wife is asleep right now. I hope when she sees this post in the morning, she won’t point to it and say “That’s our gardner’s worker!”

Update: Mrs Aussie Dave confirms it is not him.
