    Please don't conclude that that demonstration was then "non-violent". Certainly rocks don't equate with rubber bullets, but they also don't equate with just words or logic.

    Where have you been for the past two decades Phil? Is this the first time you've seen a Palestinian youth using a sling?

  3. just asking says:

    Was biblical David concerned with mere words or logic? If not, why is he a hero amongst Jews and Zionist Christians?

    Go back to playing with your dreidel. Can anyone imagine a more boring tool?

    I think it is self-regarding — and for a professed secularist, quite bizarrely so — to describe the use of slingshots as "appropriating Old Testament technology, iconography." The "Old Testament" has no copyright on the slingshot.
