Microcosm of the conflict in Ramallah

Ha'aretz reports that Palestinian Arab protesters burned tires on the planned route that prisoner buses were going to take.

So Israel re-routed the buses to avoid the burning tires.

Which prompted Palestinian Arabs to clash with the IDF, angry that the original route wasn't being used.

Which is the entire conflict in a nutshell. Palestinian Arabs so something pointless, counterproductive and destructive; Israel responds in the only way possible while preserving life, and Palestinian Arabs then turn on Israel for reacting to their idiocy.

An infinite loop of futility, fueled by self-destructive stupidity, perpetually blamed on others.
