ACROBATIC GESTURES ATTEMPTED

It hasn’t been a great week for Palestinian terrorists:

A wanted Palestinian terrorist showering at his parents’ home last week escaped an Israeli arrest raid by jumping out a window and running naked through a densely populated refugee camp …

Continued the Brigades leader: “I went out of the bathroom and from the second floor I jumped to the roof of our neighbors. From this roof to another one and than to the street. Soldiers were already far from me at my parents’ house. I started running almost 200 meters (about 650 feet) in the camp street naked trying with acrobatic gestures to hide my buttocks and my sexual organ.

“If I saw somebody in front of me so I put one or two hands on my sexual organ; if there was nobody in front of me and I heard people speaking or laughing behind me I put my hands on my buttocks,” related the terror leader.

Another, presumably clothed, fellow found himself in even worse trouble:

A Hamas militant died Sunday while digging an underground tunnel to be used in the Islamic group’s fight against Israel, Hamas said in a statement. The group did not identify the location of the tunnel.

Or the location of his hands.

    1. The Israelis piloting the drone were probably laughing too hard to fire.

    1. “Also next time I will be more careful and I will have my shower when I am wearing my clothes,” he said.

      Clearly we are not dealing with a rocket scientist here…

    1. Oh, that should make a good recruitment video for the terrorists, emphasizing, as the episode does, the nobility and dignity of their cause.

    1. BTW, was the guy’s name “Farouk”?

    1. I guess he’s not a Baathist. And he’s lucky he wasn’t in a Auslim neighbourhood in Sydney or he’d probably have been raped for making such a wanton display of meat. (BTW, I thought his name was Freeshio, paco.)

    1. “My friends in the Brigades laugh at me but my parents still feel some shame when they walk in the camp,” said the terror leader.

      Poor baby!  Does you wants a hug?!?!!?

    1. Incidentally, does the Koran make any special provisions for leaving your meat uncovered in emergency situations? Theological questions of this nature always intrigue me.

    1. Im giggling like a school girl…this is the funniest thing I have read in a long time. “leaving your meat uncovered in emergency situations” …Paco, you kill me!

    1. #8 Debi: So help me, when I first read the terrorist’s description of his flight, I thought this was going to turn out to be Jules Crittenden pulling our leg.

    1. #9 Funny you should mention Crittenden.  When I read this account, all I could think of was Achmed, Abdul, and Farouk in a big, swirly dust cloud with legs and fists sticking out, and tweety birds everywhere.  Except for the nudity, this could have been a Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin silent movie.

    1. Of course the Israelis were fooled. Who would have thought to look for a Palestinian in the shower?

    1. Keystone terrorists.

    1. Covered his meat front and back. What’s he ashamed of?

    1. Why do I keep imagining the Benny Hill music playing when I read about that guy running away from the Israeli troops?

    1. #14 Me too. I thought the terrorist leader’s name was something like Mo Beni Elhill.

    1. #14: That would be the perfect accompaniment to this character’s “streak” episode! LOL when I picture it.

    1. Perhaps we should Ask the Imam if there is a haddith describing how one should conduct themselves whilst fleeing naked. Do you hang on to the family jewels or let your dingle dongles dangle in the dirt.

    1. I put one or two hands on my sexual organ
      While being chased by the IDF seems a funny time for a wank….

    1. A Hamas militant died Sunday while digging an underground tunnel

      As opposed to one of those newfangled above-ground tunnels that the kids are all digging these days.

    1. Wasn’t this an episode of “Northern Exposure?”  Is Aaron Sorkin doing a remake?

    1. Ask the Catmeat Imam:

      When I see one of the brothers running naked thru the refugee camp, is it haram to point and say “That looks like a penis, only smaller” ?

    1. A Hamas militant died Sunday while digging an underground tunnel

      I’d guess the poor bastard was digging the “Rachel Corrie Memorial Underground Tunnel.”

    1. Or he was a Gaza strip miner, Mayor Shanks?

    1. Tunnel? Did somebody say tunnel?
      Don’t tell the NSW gogernment or they’ll sell it to Macquarie Bank and whack a toll of $3.80 on it.

    1. At last a major Australian value – streaking in public – makes it to “Palestine”.

    1. Does this man’s immodesty mean we can all rape him now, koranically speaking?
