Jeez, when I was a kid, I had a posters of Farrah Fawcett and Cheryl Tiegs on my wall. In the Palestinian Occupied land of Gaza where murder and death of innocent civillians is celebrated, posters with the images of Dead Islamic Terrorists are all the rage.
Some were killed when tank shells hit their homes. Others died when bombs erased their offices. Still others met their end battling Israeli troops.
Now their faces are rolling off the presses at the Nibras print shop, which produces full-color posters and banners of the dead. In the wake of Israel’s 22-day Gaza offensive — which killed nearly 1,300 Palestinians — it’s one of the few businesses experiencing a postwar boom.
Islamic Jihad fighter Mohammed Bedawi was among the so-called “martyrs” whose demise was commemorated with a custom-made poster — a tradition for anyone killed by Israel.
“The drone hit him,” said his cousin, Abed Bedawi, 21, referring to Israel’s unmanned surveillance planes, often seen in Gaza’s skies. “He was laying a bomb for a tank when the drone fired a missile at him.”
Before the war, about 30 percent of the print shop’s orders were for martyr posters, co-owner Ahmed al-Hor said; the rest were for things like shop signs and labels for products like tomato sauce, soap and baby food. Now, posters of the dead are 90 percent of his business.
Here’s to your one way magic carpet ride to hell assholes! Pieces be upon you…..Ooops, you’re already in pieces!
