Pali Tractor v. IDF: IDF 1, Tractor 0
Ah yes, the dreaded Tractor of Terror:
A Palestinian man riding a tractor was shot dead Thursday evening as he broke through the main gate of an army base located north of Jerusalem.The guy obviously has watched too many movies in which the hero just raises the tractor bucket so he can't get shot. It's funny how that doesn't seem to work when the people shooting at you are shooting from the side of the tractor.
When he did not react the soldiers opened fire, mortally wounding the Palestinian.
Nonetheless, I nominate this guy for this year's Rachel Corrie Darwin Award.
