Metaphor for Middle East history: Palestinian rioters roll burning tires at Israelis, set own factory on fire

Metaphor for Middle East history: Palestinian rioters roll burning tires at Israelis, set own factory on fire

“one flaming tire had other plans and changed direction, rolling directly into a nearby plastics factory”

We probably shouldn’t laugh about this, because there’s some innocent Palestinian plastics factory owner who no longer has a business.

But then again, there’s something about this story that serves as a somewhat humorous metaphor for the Middle East dispute.

Via The Times of Israel, Palestinians Accidentally Burn Down Own Factory:

Palestinian protesters in the West Bank inadvertently burned down a local factory this week while confronting IDF soldiers near the West Bank city of Nablus.

According to Hadashot news, protesters in the Nablus-area village of Beita on Sunday were clashing with IDF soldiers, and rolled burning tires in their direction.

But one flaming tire had other plans and changed direction, rolling directly into a nearby plastics factory.

The building went up in flames and the factory was completely destroyed.

The report said Israeli firefighters arrived at the scene to help Palestinian Authority responders put out the fire.

This appears to be an image of the fire:

The Qusra Now Facebook page has several photos of the fire, which they blame on the Israelis:

The Mossad (parody account) is giving its agents the day off after this feat:

And the jokes keep on rolling in:

Is it possible that the Israelis somehow took control of the tire and made it turn in a different direction?

Well, if they can use lizards, sharks, birds and other assorted animals for spying, how easy would it be to use their famous mind control techniques on a tire?

They probably used Acme tires.

    BEEP….BEEP!

    Since it was burning, I just figured it must be a Firestone.

    Sorry to go off topic, but have you downloaded anything from that website? They have some great material, but I would hate to invite something pathological onto my computer.

    Thanks for the link. I have already wasted some of my morning reading time scrolling through their offerings there.

Arabs tired of being tread upon go for extra mileage.

    Since they were tread upon surely they must be tyred?

    Seems like this outcome is in time for Israelis celebrating Purim this week.

Almost won a Darwin award

    We see the same thing in the USA when BLM geniuses in Baltimore, St. Louis, et al burn down black-owned businesses and black residences.

    And then they attacked the firefighters who come to help. Even the Palestinians didn’t do that.

    And the mayor of Baltimore and the then-president (small p) encouraged them to do this.

    Palestinian immigrants, while terrible, are almost an improvement.

Arabs don’t like to work.

i’m going to go ahead and LOL at this: if that Paleostinian had really wanted to build a business, he should have made his personal peace with Israel, moved there, and opened a business in a civilized state, not some barbaric 5hithole.

Why the F did they help put the fire out? They should’ve done a bombing run.
Trump could run that country better than they do.

“Palestinian rioters rolled a flaming tire at Israeli soldiers.
Tire changed direction, and entered a Palestinian plastic factory.
The factory burned down.
Israeli firefighters assisted in extinguishing the fire.”

And there’s the Israeli-Arab conflict of cultures in a nutshell.

“Innocent Palestinian” is an oxymoron.

Palestinians: Living proof that, yes, some dogs do s*** where they eat and sleep.

My, my. Just look at that carbon footprint.

Is there such a thing as Jewish rubber?

You know, if Toronto didn’t have a minor league football team, and if they didn’t have chearleaders, I wouldn’t know Toronto exists.

I kid, I kid; I do think the Canucks erred when the named their elite the Princess Patricia Light Infantry. Not my first choice, but then, you’ve got to be tough after that.

“Watch the Navy Send a Retired Frigate Out With a Bang

The decommissioned warship was hit with everything but the kitchen sink during a live fire exercise.”

The Canucks got in this, too.

“…The USS Thach was an Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate. Commissioned in 1979, it was named after Jimmy Thach, a World War II F4F Wildcat pilot who invented the famous “Thach Weave” fighter formation to counter the Japanese Zero fighter…”

The Thatch weave made the Wildcat equal to the Zero. The Hellcat didn’t need it. I trained in Tomcats.

Anytime, baby. Grumman ironworks. Saburo Sakai used to watch in amazemet after he shot up a USN plane and it just kept going.

I don’t know how much damage you need to do to one of these things to bring it down.

Nobody knows. It’s never been done. I do know you can bring it in on one engine with the gear up, and fly it the next day.

It would appear the Allah has one hell of a sense of humor.

Why the F did they [Israelis] help put the fire out?
Mossad wanted to get its remotely controlled tire back.

    Because to spite the bigoted opinion of what seems to be the rest of the western world the Israelis are the good guys.

Really. You can’t make this $**t up. There is no limit to the depths of “Palestinian” stupidity. How have they mmanaged to survive? It’s downright embarassing to humanity. Get’em out of the gene pool.

Palestinians proving once again they are INCAPABLE of running their own country. If Israel gave them ALL of their land they would only trash it in a matter of weeks then want more land.

    Allah is not great. Look at what Islam has done to those practicing it. Basically Muslims stood still for over a thousand years, while the rest of humanity evolved.

A weapons stash or rockets blowing off inside the factory…. then the irony meter would need replacing.

So get mad Palestinians and burn down your own homes – that’ll show them.
