What is wrong with this pic?

Spot the Curiosity: ”

The following photo was found in a house in Sajaiah in January, 2006. Can anyone spot what is really ‘interesting’ about it?

Clue: I am not referring to the fact the boys are posing with weapons. That has ceased to be interesting – but not sick – since it is so commonplace.



Answer: The boy on the right seems to have a Playboy logo on his sweater (hat tip: Tep).

    Poorer families in Eretz Israel (and there are more and more poor families in the region) often get second-hand clothes from various organizations with logos and sayings in foreign languages that they don’t understand. That seems the most logical explanation to me. I saw it all the time back in the day.

    There might be another explanation…

    Commonplace or not, the sight of such a young child with an automatic weapon is still shocking to me. The way these people teach their children to be martyrs, in my opinion, warrents a serious look into whether these people are competent parents or not. If not, then the appropriate action should be taken to protect the children. I say stop picking on conservative home-schooled kids in America and start looking into the obvious child abuse in the Muslim world, where they are even stolen from their families, or sometimes sold by their families, drugged and coerced or brainwashed into becoming suicide bombers.
