From the IDF Spokesperson website:
The following video is of a protest which took place yesterday in Umm Salamuna, southeast of Bethlehem in the West Bank. Every Friday afternoon, protesters gather in the town to demonstrate against the security fence, which has dramatically decreased suicide bombings and other terror attacks inside Israel for over 6 years. Protests in Umm Salamuna often turn violent, with rocks being hurled at IDF and other security forces by rioters who also damage the security fence.
In the video, the deputy battalion commander of the Kfir Brigade offers water to the protesters due to the extremely high temperature mid-afternoon that day. The Palestinian protest leader tells his supporters, “Don’t drink the water!” following which a woman dumps out a cup of water offered to her by the commander.
Whew, that was close! Who knows what the IDF spiked the water with – poison, sex hormones, anti-sex hormones, tiny bacteria that eat out your spleen – the mind reels at how much damage could have resulted if Arab protesters would accept a simple gift of water from a soldier.
They might have even started to regard Israelis as human beings, and that would be the worst possible outcome.
