Latest Palestinian Libel: Arrested Development

Palestinian propaganda Facebook page have posted another of our supposed “crimes” – arresting a palestinian child in Jerusalem.

Assuming that is a palestinian kid, does he look abused or frightened to you? Are the IDF border policemen manhandling him or even restraining him? I sincerely doubt that is an arrest (but if it was, you can bet it was warranted).

In fact, when I first saw this photo, I thought the kid might even be Jewish, because it looks like he is wearing Tzitzit (ritual fringes).

Given he does not seem to be wearing a kippa on his head (just a weird hairstyle), plus the “fringes” seem to only be on one side of his body, I now think it is just an optical illusion created by the space between his legs and those of the border policeman to his back-right.
