The modern David vs. Goliath

A Palestinian boy, in a modern version of David & Goliath, defying an Israeli army bulldozer with rocks during a protest in the West Bank village of Kufr Qaddum where weekly protests are held against Israeli occupation & are always met with tear gas & Israeli violence. In a protest here last month marking the anniversary of the death of Rachel Corrie (an American protester run over by an Israeli army bulldozer in 2003) Israeli soldiers unleashed a dog to attack a Palestinian protestor & when they finally pried the dog off the young man, they arrested him. They also fired a rubber bullet at an Israeli woman protesting with Palestinians which hit her in the head & required hospital. Stand with Palestinians by boycotting all Israeli products (which can be identified by the barcode beginning 729). (Photo by Nasser Ishtayeh/AP)
