US Woman Loses Eye in Israeli Protest
Newser.com ^ | June 2, 2010 | AP

Posted on 06/02/2010 11:31:28 AM PDT by Beaten Valve

An American woman lost her eye yesterday during a demonstration in Jerusalem against Israel's naval raid on a Gaza aid flotilla. Maryland college student Emily Henochowicz, 21, was hit in the face by a tear gas canister shot by an Israeli border policeman and underwent surgery in a local hospital, where she is now recuperating.

This is what happens to people who stand around and sympathize with the terrorists.

She's fortunate that a bulldozer didn't run over her.

The ME is not for wimps and those who are just voyeurs.

Hate to see anyone maimed - but it appears she was being stupid - or as they “Stupid is as stupid does”

When she gets out of the hospital, give her some jail time, and deport her to a Muslim country.

There is a reason why we have so many words in the English language. Words mean things. Calling this a “protest” is just one example of spin. Had this girl been injured “protesting” I’d be the first to demand justice. However, she wasn’t “protesting”, she was “rioting” Riots are dangerous business. Smart people avoid them like the plague.

i wonder if, during her recovery, a simple thought will dawn on her...

“ya know... being a human meat shield for terrorists isn’t such a great idea.”

A Drudge headline says that the “Activists” threw stun grenades. That’s what set off the Israeli response.

If she was close enough to get hit in the she was in the wrong place. When you go where you shouldn't be bad things can happen.

Now she can wear an eye patch, like Moshe Dayan.

How stupid was she to be on the deck when the Israeli Seals came?
What did she have in her hands? chains, pole stun grenade, gun?

She wasn’t sitting on a deck chair drinking tea

When a crowd is ordered to disperse, you take your chances in the resulting melee when you reject that order.
