Uniroyal Boy Feeling Regret

Why does this image bring me such joy?

It’s a young boy in the midst of getting hit by a car—how could I takes such glee?

Because the little [bleeper] deserved it.

“I had just left the Friday prayers at the neighborhood’s protest tent when I saw a car speeding towards me,” remembers Amran Mansur, 11, who was ran over by David Be’eri, chairman of the Elad Association promoting Jewish settlement in east Jerusalem.

Amran was released from the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem early on Saturday. “I couldn’t run away in time, I didn’t even have time to signal him with my hands,” he says. “It was clear he did it on purpose. I was on the sidewalk, so there’s no chance it wasn’t deliberate.”

Poor little Amram. Walking home from prayers when a Big Bad Jew ran him over with his Subaru.

Except…

Except Amram was in the street, not the sidewalk. The picture’s quite clear on the subject. So is it clear that he and his mates are covering their faces and throwing stones—just what the Big Bad Jew said they were doing. Go figure.

Look at the picture again. Do you see even a hint of youthful innocence? I don’t. I see the evil spawn of an evil society. Maybe no 11 year old deserves what little Amram got. But if anyone does, it’s that little [bleep] himself. In fact, I would have thrown it in reverse and backed up over him.

Whatever else it makes me, it makes me meticulous.

    I’ve always noticed that about you BTL – you are meticulous.
