Land Day Shenanigans

Palestinians marking Land Day have predictably turned violent, hurling Molotov cocktails and stones, and burning tires near the Qalandiya checkpoint north of Jerusalem. 

But at least it’s fun for the whole family.

As a parent of young children, I know I wouldn’t allow my kids to engage in such activities. But then again, I wouldn’t feed them on a diet of hate, nor encourage them to martyr themselves.

Update: Video of the violence in Bethlehem.

Update: Hey, it’s the Green Lantern Land-un, armed with his weapon of choice: the bottle.

Palestinian protesters

Israeli security forces fired rubber bullets, tear gas and stun grenades to break up groups of Palestinian stone-throwers on Friday as annual Land Day rallies turned violent. Land Day commemorates the killing by security forces of six Arabs in 1976 during protests against government plans to confiscate land in northern Israel's Galilee region. REUTERS/Suhaib Salem
