Can you imagine?

In other news, Thomas Friedman assured the Zionists of the world that Arab uprisings have no foreign policy goals:  “David Saranga claims he never felt threatened inside Rabat parliament building as scores rallied outside in support of Palestinian prisoners; says Tunisian rep at conference ‘stopped smiling when he learned I was Israeli’.  I was told to get to the airport as soon as possible and leave Morocco,” veteran Israeli diplomat David Saranga told Ynet Monday, a day after tens of thousands of people held a mass rally in Rabat to protest his presence there.  I was told to get to the airport as soon as possible and leave Morocco,” veteran Israeli diplomat David Saranga told Ynet Monday, a day after tens of thousands of people held a mass rally in Rabat to protest his presence there.“”  By the way, do Israelis find all this detestation for them in the Arab world overwhelming?  They should.

(Warning: not true story, apparently) "I do not recognise you. I am a 16-year-old child and you are unjustly trying me. You are a Mafia gang and I do not recognise your state.”

According to the lawyers of the Palestinian Prisoners Society, Salibi was asked to stand up by the judge and the prosecution lawyer began to read the indictment list, but the child interrupted the prosecutor saying: “I do not recognise you. I am a 16-year-old child and you are unjustly trying me. You are a Mafia gang and I do not recognise your state.”  When the judge heard these words, he got very angry and left the court room warning the boy that his punishment was going to be severe, according to those who attended the hearing.   Salibi was arrested on 12 March in the town of Beit Ummar and was subjected to beating and “various forms of barbaric torture,” according to defence lawyers who said that signs of torture are still visible on his face and body.
