Low-key Palestinian protest rallies. One killed in Gaza

Far fewer Palestinians than predicted turned out Friday in response to their leaders’ call for massive demonstrations against President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, after a low key turnout Thursday. The Palestinians reported 15 injured and 6 detained in relatively small demonstrations staged in Hebron, where Hamas is strong, Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem, Nablus, Qalqilya and Qalandia. Jerusalem was mostly calm and Al Aqsa worshipers dispersed quietly after Friday prayers. The rowdiest demonstrations were in the Gaza Strip, where thousands pushed at the border fence and threw objects at Israeli troops, who opened fire to drive them off. One  Gazan demonstrator was killed and 55 injured.  Small groups of protesters turned out in the Israeli Arab towns of Wadi Iron north of Tel Aviv and dispersed quietly.

    For the courageous palestinian protesters only one important point: keep your face covered at all times while you simbolically recreate the jihadi event of the Big Bang, when matter in form of substance with mass, mostly rocks, was thrown and gave birth of the whole Universe. Why to let jews know of your personal greatness for free?
    May we rejoyce in Paradise, greeted by virgins, eating delicious foods, and shitting dynamite!
