A photo of a Palestinian man, who set himself on fire after trying to throw a Molotov cocktail at Israeli soldiers, has hit social media and many pro-Israel users are irate. They aren’t upset the man set himself on fire, but that Reuters used the word “protestor” to describe him when it’s pretty obvious the idiot leans a little closer to the description of a “terrorist”.
The following are a few captions:
An Agence France-Presse stringer also captured the dramatic moment, which AFP captioned in part: “The clothes of a Palestinian student from Hebron University burn after he set himself on fire while throwing a Molotov cocktail towards Israeli soldiers and border police during clashes after the protesters blocked the main north entrance of the West Bank town of Hebron with stones and tyres.”
Palestinian protesters put out a fire burning on a compatriot, caused by a molotov cocktail which he was trying to hurl at Israeli troops during clashes in the West Bank city of Hebron, October 13, 2015. Seven Israelis and 27 Palestinians, including nine alleged attackers and eight children, have died in almost two weeks of street attacks and security crackdowns. The violence has been stirred in part by Muslim anger over increasing Jewish visits to the al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem, Islam’s holiest site outside the Arabian Peninsula.
