Palestinian woman caught at crossing with crocodiles strapped to chest

posted at 1:21 pm on March 26, 2007 by Allahpundit

I know what you’re thinking and no, they haven’t quite reached that level of depravity yet. It’s believed she was smuggling them in for a zoo. Who knows, though? Maybe they’ll trot them out for Hamas rallies. Get a few Israeli seabirds, slap some green headbands on the crocs, and you’ve got dynamite sacrificial rite.

“The woman looked strangely fat. Even though she was veiled and covered, even with so many clothes on there was something strange,” Telleria said.

The incident, which took place on Thursday, sparked panic at the crossing.

“The policewoman screamed and ran out of the room, and then women began screaming and panicking when they heard,” Telleria said. But when the hysteria died down, she said, ” everybody was admiring a woman who is able to tie crocodiles to her body.”

The new schmuck in charge of the UN was in Gaza yesterday shedding, um, crocodile tears over the separation fence that’s causing such hardship by keeping degenerate killers out of Israel. The New York Times would have you believe that Palestinians are slowly but surely abandoning the right of return (which isn’t at all clear from their own article), and while that may be true to some extent in other countries, in Gaza the dream appears to be alive and well:

He went on to the roof of a UN-run girls’ school in the camp to take a look at the barrier, which in some sections, including the one near Aida, is made up of towering cement blocks. “No wall will stop us,” read a piece of graffiti in English…

Mr Ban said it was “a very sad and tragic thing to see many suffering from the construction of this wall, depriving opportunities for basic living”…

People living near the girls’ school unfurled banners from their balconies, to remind him of the plight of the Palestinian refugees. “UN bodies and agencies should enable Palestinian refugees to exercise their right of return,” read one sign in English, referring to people’s demands to return to homes in what is now Israel.

Hamas is preparing just in case.

Smuggling crocodiles? What some women won’t do for a new pair of shoes.

Suicide Crocodile Carriers?

CRICKEY!

Defector01 on March 26, 2007 at 1:29 PM

That’s actually kind of impressive.

Slublog on March 26, 2007 at 1:30 PM

Jumping through rings on fire, crocodiles tied to people, heavy use of banners and cloth… sounds like an ad for the circus coming to town.

depriving opportunities for basic living

Basic living in Israel, of course. Does he ask why they can’t make a basic living in Gaza or the West Bank? I think not.

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on March 26, 2007 at 1:33 PM

In her defense, the woman said she “was asked” to carry the crocodiles…

Well geez, if that’s all it takes.

KelliD on March 26, 2007 at 1:35 PM

is this a publicity attempt by the palestinians to turn the animal rights people against the Israelis?

Defector01 on March 26, 2007 at 1:36 PM

When asked why she was tried to set off the crocodile belt by IDF interrogators, the woman said,

“I shall have the best shoes and handbag if I get to paradise, Allah willing! Death to Israel! Allah Ackbar!”

Sounds about right, they just need to bring John Wayne Gacy back from the dead to be their clown.

Bad Candy on March 26, 2007 at 1:41 PM

Is it wrong that I look at that picture of the terrorist jumping through the flaming hoop and the first thought that comes to mind is, oh, guess they can’t afford dogs for that…

Bad Candy on March 26, 2007 at 1:43 PM

Why do they (the Palestinians) have to make Britney Spears and K-Fed look like responsible adults?

E L Frederick (Sniper One) on March 26, 2007 at 1:44 PM

oh, guess they can’t afford dogs for that…

Nah, owning dogs is un-Islamic.

E L Frederick (Sniper One) on March 26, 2007 at 1:46 PM

And Israel has deprived these people of the opportunity to conduct genetic engineering experiments to bring Gacy back for clown duty. He would be perfect. He liked to dig a lot of holes in the ground too, though not for smuggling weapons.

And if the NYT read this comment, their headline could be “Israel to refuse Palestinian right to return, clowns”

Wineaholic on March 26, 2007 at 1:47 PM

oooh, ooh, I’ve heard this joke before!
A Palestinian woman and a crcocodile go into a bazaar…

All they need are baloons dropping from the ceiling and it could be the Democratic National Convention.

Islamic Chastity Belts protect a woman’s honor. There is a similar version in Brazil, but its made out of pirhanas. And experimental version was developed in Australia made of Koalas, but that one proved irresistable- everyone wanted to pet it. Also rejected as a chastity belt was the jelly-fish belt. It was “too sticky.”

BelchSpeak on March 26, 2007 at 2:13 PM

It’s their way of performing a Bris. These are the tools of the trade.
We know so little about these… people?

Kini on March 26, 2007 at 2:20 PM

I can’t believe that no one came up with an “assault croc” joke.
Is that a croc under your burka or are you just glad to see me?

Catseye on March 26, 2007 at 2:49 PM

In Soviet Russia, crododiles tie themselves to you!

There. Fixed it for you.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA.
Too Funny

That photo of the guy jumping through the flaming hoop is hilarious. Am I the only one who thinks that the terrorist training videos look like some sort of dog show on Animal Planet? Or maybe elementary school gym class?

“UN bodies and agencies should enable Palestinian refugees to exercise their right of return,” read one sign in English

I’m impressed with the English fluency of these sign writers. The education system in the “Palestinian Refugee Camps” must be astounding.

askheaves on March 26, 2007 at 3:08 PM

Yeah. Great training, boys. Jumping through hula hoops and a little lighter fluid. Pussies. In my country, that silliness wouldn’t even get you into a good fraternity.

A serious question on this:

“The woman looked strangely fat. Even though she was veiled and covered, even with so many clothes on

I wonder – how many people have died because even the Israelis won’t offend Muslim sensibilities enough to ban the burka/veil for security reasons?

Maybe I’m wrong. Anyone know? It just seems like in a rational world, if you were worried about suicide bombers, the first thing you’d do is make sure they couldn’t wear a head-to-toe body sack to hide explosives.

If you can almost smuggle crocodiles, hiding a few pounds of C-4 can’t be that hard.

Professor Blather on March 26, 2007 at 3:26 PM

Arafat looks like a crocodile in that picture.

Entelechy on March 26, 2007 at 4:06 PM

This brings up the age old question of how many crocodiles can you hide in a burka ?

William Amos on March 26, 2007 at 4:18 PM

In a related story, PETA has demanded that the baby crocs be allowed to die with dignity.

infidel4life on March 26, 2007 at 5:34 PM

You’re missing the big picture guys! They wanted to flush them down Israeli toilets so they’ll mutate and attack cities!!

P.S. I wanna put firey hoops up in AQ hot spots just to see what happens.

I bet her brassiere hissing and dripping of saliva gave her away!

Allah-gators, I tell you!

This will spawn great new idiotic questions for the TSA in the US to add to their repertoire of stupid questions. “Has anyone asked you to carry luggage? Has anyone asked to you carry alligator-skin luggage? Has anyone asked to carry an alligator? Excuse me ma’am, could you please step over to the alligator detector. . .” In this country, one person tries to carry an alligator through a check-point, and you’ve a bill in Congress making it a felony with a mandatory five year sentence, and then some entrepeneur comes up with an alligator detector that everyone has to go through.

In Israel they have some little 21 cutie come up and start chatting you up, and after a couple of minutes of this pleasant diversion, right about the time you think maybe you ought to let your stomach out so you can breathe, you realize you’ve just given her TONS of information. By now, you’ve told her when the alligator’s birthday is, its nickname, etc.
