Palestinians Pose as Na'vi

Is James Cameron's movie Avatar political or do people use it as a political tool? How about both. In an effort to use the movie as a symbol of Israeli oppression, Palestinians dress up like Na'vi and protest Israel's border barrier with the west bank.

The demonstrators also donned long hair and loincloths Friday for the weekly protest against the barrier near the village of Bilin.

They equated their struggle to the intergalactic one portrayed in the film...The "Avatar" protest comes a day after the Israeli government began rerouting the enclosure to eat up less of the Palestinian village.

One might say ungrateful bastards, but then again Israel is deal with an insurgency that intends on fomenting Israel's destruction. May be Obama will have them singing songs in his praise any day now, like the kids we have seen in this country in the last year. Hmmm Hmmm Hmmm. I didn't know the Na'vi were Muslim, but then no one knew Obama is one too. :) How's that for a non-sequitur.

Thank you for reading this blog.

Funny how they hate Americans and then use an American theme.

I don't know if you would call it an american theme. James Cameron isn't American, at least not American born. He's Canadian. He's also an asshole. That aside, the palestinian view probably fits in with his world view.
