Peaceful resistance, illustrated

Here is one of the peaceful, non-violent stone throwers among the many rioters who are rampaging through Jerusalem.

These latest riots were sparked when a security guard driving through an Arab neighborhood found himself being pelted with stones - possibly small pebbles like the one pictured above - and, fearing for his life, he shot one of the stone-throwers dead.

One Jew was stabbed in the back during the funeral for the rioter.

This photo came from the Arabic Paltimes site, which has many more photos of the rioting.

Right now some of the rioters are hiding in the Al Aqsa mosque.
