Palestinian policemen participate a military training excercise during their graduation ceremony at the town of Rafah, southern Gaza Strip Sunday Feb. 19 2006.
Now I don't know as much about the military exercises as I suppose my sons or father in law do, but since when is breaking a pile of stone tiles on someone's chest with a sledgehammer a military exercise"? (I mean what if someone attacks you with a pointed stick?)
I can't fathom what military exercise this is so I'll leave it to the experts: Israelly Cool!, Elder of Ziyon and AbbaGav, who all have experience explaining the intricacies of Palestinian police training.
By the way, the guy, with the bricks on his chest, is lying on a bed of nails. I'm sure that military cots are not comfortable, but a bed of nails? The guy looks Sikh.
UPDATE: Elder of Ziyon comes through with an answer.Posted by SoccerDad at February 21, 2006 1:19 AM
