Zionist monsters attack protesters with mysterious blue chemical!

Got this from Greg Tinti, who passed it along as an example of possible fauxtography. Adnan Hajj made the smoke darker; is this a case of someone making the water bluer?

Nah, it’s legit. There was a protest yesterday in the West Bank against the security wall that’s been helping to keep suicide bombers out of Israel for the past year or two. Charles Johnson’s favorite useful idiots were there. As was someone from IMEMC, who filed this report — under the irresistible headline, “Israeli Army sprays protestors in Bil’in with unknown blue chemical”:

[T]he army was already present within the village, having occupied several rooftops with snipers, and with armored vehicles stationed at the entrance of the village in order to stop the procession there. There were also water cannon trucks that fired blue dye at the protestors, which, according to local organizer Abdullah Abu Rahma, appeared to contain toxic components.

Seven residents who were hit with the full blast of the dye began screaming and shaking when the dye hit them. The soldiers then fired rubber-coated bullets, and an Associated Press photographer named Rami Abdu was injured when one of the rubber-coated bullets hit him in the back.

According to a press release from the International Solidarity Movement, who had members present at the protest, “Bright blue water was fired from the canon at the demonstrators, totally unprovoked, as soon as they were within range of the massive white tank. Many demonstrators were soaked by the blue liquid, dying their hair, clothes and skin, and most of them reported subsequent burning and irritation of the skin. Tear gas was also used against the demonstrators as soon as the water canon was engaged, so it is unclear whether the burning was from gas being absorbed into the wet skin and clothing, or whether the water itself contained a chemical. Regardless, the message from the Israeli army was clear: non-violent protest will not be tolerated and will be met by increasing displays of force.”

There’s a photo of them being sprayed at the link.

What demonic poison has the Jew unleashed on unassuming Arabs now? Slow-acting napalm? Some sort of sterilizing agent, perhaps? In all likelihood, it’s diluted turpentine — the same thing they used on Jewish settlers last year when they forcibly evacuated them from Gaza:

Protesters there threw paint-filled light bulbs at police, who responded with a water cannon loaded with blue dye and turpentine-tainted water.

And why would they do that? An Aussie reporter who was there at the time explained:

Police in full riot gear and carrying batons broke open the doors with a hydraulic ram and went in and began dragging out those inside including women and small children, as the protesters on the roof hurled paint, sand, rocks and furniture on to them.

The police responded with water cannon laced with blue dye and turpentine to mark the protestors for later prosecution…

So there’s your answer, all wrapped up in a bow for easy linkage when the inevitable dKos post appears wondering what terrible genocidal misfortune the poor Palestinians are suffering now.

Update: I can’t tease you with the promise of fauxtography without delivering, so Here you go. This one really is a photoshop. I think.

Hmmm……….mysterious blue chemical
I’ll have to get to the bioweapons dept of the Worldwide Jewish Conspiracy. I’m in media relations :-P

Defector01 on August 19, 2006 at 5:44 PM

Whew. I thought for a second that was a stream of Pepsi Blue. Now that would have been unforgivable.

see-dubya on August 19, 2006 at 6:37 PM

I’d check that stuff for smurf DNA. I think we all know what team Gargamel was playing for….

rw on August 19, 2006 at 6:55 PM

That’s the stuff from a Porta-Potty. Ewwwww.

Pablo on August 19, 2006 at 6:55 PM

Well, the Jews control all the world’s money, so they’ve been testing explosive dye packs on unsuspecting bank robbers these many years.

Just taking it to the next level.

What demonic poison has the Jew unleashed on unassuming Arabs now?

Here’s hoping, against all hope, that it:

- increases their self-esteem
- decreases their ‘blame-all-other’, especially Jews and Americans, mentality
- increases their love for their children and youth
- increases their respect for life, theirs and all others’
- increases their creativity
- increases their tolerance of other religions
- increases their participative spirit in following the same rules they request so rigorously from us in matters: military, civic, libertarian, etc.

Entelechy, wake up, your reverie is over…

Look mom! The Ajax turned blue!

DannoJyd on August 19, 2006 at 7:16 PM

Its the same stuff which turns the toilet water blue….. and has the same purpose.

CrazyFool on August 19, 2006 at 7:22 PM

Maybe looking like Blue Man Group rejects might cramp their style at the after party flag burning. I am sure the media will find some way to photoshop it out.

Crazyfool
maybe it is that
world’s biggest practical joke
and it’ll still earn condemnation from the UN

“Quite frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn!”

Screw around with the Israeli’s and it’s like my dad always told me, ‘fuck with the bull and you’ll get the horn’s!‘ Bravo Israel!

Umnumzana on August 19, 2006 at 7:58 PM

It should be red … PIG’S BLOOD RED!

Tony737 on August 19, 2006 at 9:48 PM

My favorite color has always been blue.

This was the first thing to occured to me after having read the post and seen the pic. Makes sense. Sorta like what they put in the money bags just before handing it over to the bank robbers.

Also reminded me of frosh week at university. They purple died us, head to foot, as is the tradition. Perhaps not quite the same as the above, as it wasn’t applied with water canons, but the result is similar, ie, you could tell who the engineering students were.

It could be an attempt to turn them all into Smurfs.

Then they’ll just run around all day singing their “La La” song.

Hey, try anything I say.

TheSev on August 20, 2006 at 9:32 AM

Procal Haren……Until Uru?! Neat! :o)

Coronagold on August 20, 2006 at 10:10 AM

Who gives a damn about these people anymore? It’s one thing after another … give them one thing they want another. To hell with spraying them with blue water, I say get a big arse can of RAID or some giant NO-PEST strips.

Oh the humanity!

entagor on August 20, 2006 at 12:29 PM

My mom told me they did that once when she was in college. There was some riot on campus, and they sprayed the crowd with green ink. Anyone found looking moldy later was expelled.

If it’s good enough for American colleges, it’s good enough for the IDF!

Tanya on August 20, 2006 at 2:59 PM

The South African government of the late 80s was abhorrent in a lot of ways, but they knew their crowd control techniques. Bravo to Israel for carrying on a proud tradition of domestic control of the lower castes.

Sorry, here’s the reference.

Time for a smurf hunt in the West Bank!!
