A visit to 'Israel's Burning Man'


At the climax of the event, “Settlers” evicted native Palestinians from the area, destroyed houses, schools and water supplies, and then burned a gigantic effigy of Yasser Arafat.


Still better than the burning man “festivals” put on in Southeast Asia…

So… the spectre of shirtcocking rears its ugly head once again in the pages of Boing Boing! :smiley:

Would it be OK to make a joke about the burn miraculously lasting for eight days?

Let me note that the government of Israel plans to evict all Bedouins from their homes in the Negev & stick them in urban ghettos they will build nearby. This even though Arab Israelis are citizens & Israel proclaims itself as the only democracy in the Middle East.
