27-Feb-12: The power of the camera [FOLLOW UP]

On Thursday 23-Feb-12, we wrote here about the sickening, frightening scenes being played out on the roads around Jerusalem: scenes in which clusters of thuggish Palestinian Arabs set up roadside ambushes of Israeli vehicles and Israeli drivers and passengers; scenes in which professional camerapeople working for media organizations stand beside the thugs waiting for "action" and then capturing it.

If you have not yet witnessed an actual rock-throwing attack, be ready to learn. The video below, from Israel National News and translated to English via subtitles, shows what such attempts to murder innocent civilians look like from the vantage point of the rock-throwing thugs and the camerapeople who are often the reason why such attacks happen (what's the impact of a rock throwing attack on a car if no one sees it?)

Notice that cement blocks are involved here too. But the fact is that rocks alone are enough to cause lethal damage. Remember the tragic deaths of Asher Palmer and his baby son Yonatan six months, among many others.
