Along with this story about protesters fighting eviction in the West Bank, comes the following AP picture:

The original caption reads, “Settler struggles with an Israeli security officer in Amona outpost.” Uh, I count at least 8 security guys trying to give her the shove. And yet she seems to be doing pretty well. Against 8 men. In armor. Uphill.

It really captures the essence of the whole sad affair. I wish the story gave her name. I’d add her to the list of People I Won’t Piss off.

    lol, i think she must be part german, or swedish

  2. Rustybadger says:

    Nope, Inara, she’s Jewish. You’ve obviously never been up against a Jewish mother!

  3. Telas says:

    This could be an ad for matzo-ball soup…

  4. Tacoma says:

    She’s obviously Anakin’s mom. From whom he should have hung around and learned how to fight when your opponent has the high ground.

  5. Eric says:

    That’s an incredible picture. Sad, but the strenght in that woman is absolutely admirable.

  6. sab says:

    Yes I know this is over 4 years late, but that’s me.
    I’m wondering why they don’t go around the fence to grab her though.
