What Really Happened at Fallujah?
By Associated Press
Associated Press | May 2, 2003


An amazing story has emerged that explains the events this past week in the town of Fallujah in Iraq. It is by now well known that 17 Iraqi civilians were killed by US military personnel this past week in the town when the soldiers were attacked by mobs of rock-throwing Iraqis. What was not known before is that the mobs attacked the soldiers because a rumor had spread in Fallujah that the soldiers were in fact Israeli troops. The civilians had been led to believe that they could throw rocks with impunity at the troops because they were Israelis, and indeed they would be rewarded for their rock throwing with assorted concessions, goodwill gestures, free lands, and subsidies.

Our correspondent in Fallujah learned the tem and our own state in parts of Samaria. We were promised a state visit by Colin Powell and generous US subsidies. And most importantly, we were led to believe that we would be protected by large numbers of scantily clad female peace activists, ready to intervene on our behalf if any of the troops got irritated by our rock throwing. We naturally expected that these peaceniks would have an intense interest in what is to be found under our galabiyas. And we figured the Israeli soldiers would be ordered to run and cower, under direct orders not to return fire, and then to make goodwill gestures to us and hand us dollars. We figured the very worst thing that could happen would be that these Israelis would fire some funny rubber do-hickeys at us while we laugh and denounce them for the CNN crews as occupiers and terrorists."

"No fair," seems to be the reaction of locals. Fallujah local militia leaders are launching their own investigation to see who is responsible for misleading the Fallujaians into mistaking US marine leathernecks for Israeli soldiers, thinking they were under strict orders to respond to rock throwing with cowardice and niceness.

I've just spent ten minutes going through Google News for any trace of the article you posted and found nothing. Care to provide a link?

Because I don't think the Associated Press has a history of writing lines like "the civilians had been led to believe that they could throw rocks with impunity at the troops because they were Israelis, and indeed they would be rewarded for their rock throwing with assorted concessions, goodwill gestures, free lands, and subsidies."

Are you SURE this wasn't really from the Onion or something, this was very funny.

I didn't find that report on Google or in the Onion. But I did find this shocking story:

There is interest, however, my ubderstanding is that most are in California. GM is coming out with SUVs that will be gas/electric soon although the increase in mileage is only about 10%.
