Police said the man, who is of Arab descent, only suffered minor injuries outside the Israeli embassy in south-west Berlin. …

Sure. Maybe it was just a very annoying case of head lice he was trying to get rid of.

Only suffered minor injuries ... Just goes to prove that Arabs are incapable of doing anything right. What a worthless people.

Embassy workers decided to take up a collection for the man. So far they have collected 3 lighters and two cans of gasoline.

I once knew this very pretty girl who’s disgruntled ex-boyfriend showed up at the bank that she worked and did this same thing but succeeded.
Yea, he reallly showed her......what an idiot.

Yep, so tough to figure if it’s a protest or not, so many people setting themselves on fire these days... /s

It’s tough, but I hope she was able to dismiss it from her mind. That was all about him, and had nothing to do with her in the real sane world. I don’t care what you do to a guy, him setting himself on fire doesn’t even come close to a reasoned reaction. I can actually understand suicide. Setting yourself on fire? Seriously?

I’m sure it haunted her. That’s too bad.

If you build a man a fire, you can warm him for a night.

If you set a man on fire, you can warm him for the rest of his life.
