I have a tough time finding sympathy.

He should be thankful there were no bulldozers around.

Israelis should only be allowed to shoot blanks. Since only users of live ammo should be palestinians, rubber bullets constitute an illegal weapon and therefore a war crime.

Wow! He traveled all the way from Sodom on the Sea to Israel to side with the Islamofascists.

Some vacation.

At least he got a momento of his visit. Hope he liked it.

Oh, wait...I mean, shocked and outraged...yeah, that’s it. I’m shocked and outraged that his hate speech chantings and perhaps rock throwing got him hurt by those dastardly Jews.

Looked at all of the pictures; would like to believe it “knocked some sense into him” but I doubt it. And, you know something, as hard as I try, I just can’t seem to work up much sympathy for him (the idiot)...

I went to a few websites, and they predictably say it was a non-violent protest and the protesters were fired on for no reason.

Riiiiiiiigggghhhhht.

Looks like it was a heady experience. It takes a strong head to get through something like that. Looks like he might be heading in the wrong direction. He really should have a heads up discussion with his advisers.

Anybody named “Shambo” deserves a rubber bullet to the noggin.

He should have worn his anti-rubber bullet suit.
