Now, you are just being silly

Displaced Jordanians, referring to themselves as "Palestinians" have stooped to new levels of pop-culture manipulation and unadulterated buffoonery in their most recent protests. They have painted themselves blue and worn loincloths and wigs in emulation of characters in the movie Avatar.

I am unsure what message they are trying to send. But, if they are attempting to convince me that "Palestinians" are a made-up "people" who don't exist except except in fictional stories used to milk money from an audience they mainly consider to be "customers" - well, that I understood a long time ago.

Or, maybe they are just explaining that they are blue. Or, that they walk on clouds. I just don't know.
