Hello, A Bomb Is Coming
Status: Weird and disturbing practical jokeThe Israeli army has been phoning homes in Lebanon to warn the people inside that a bomb is about to drop. This is odd, but true. But even odder is that this practice has now inspired Palestinian practical jokers. Hurriyet reports: That's a pretty bad joke, but from the point of view of social psychology it's probably an attempt to gain some sense of control over a desperate situation through the use of comedy.
Or perhaps a cynical effort to ensure Western outrage at civilian deaths, by ensuring that civilians are in the line of fire.Posted by Sam on Fri Aug 04, 2006 at 05:26 PM
