Is this real?  I got it in my email.

retro fitted garbage truck Gaza


Captured “garbage truck” from Gaza

This is  a captured “garbage truck” from Gaza.

The truck is set up to fire Kasem rockets and then drive off innocently.

The note pasted on the driver’s door says “ In case of traffic violations, please contact The Palestinian Authority.”

The Israelis have evidence of ambulances and emergency vehicles set up the same way.

I have run the site since 2005. And I have to say I am pretty damn proud of it. I wrote the book Whalewolf (sold on and am not even close to tired so I am just going to keep going. I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in New York and Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Eight years and counting....

    Holy buckets! That is freakin’ scary. I can see it now… you’re trapped in the desert, dehydrating and near death when an ambulance happens along. “Yay! I’m saved!” KABLOOEY!

    Jesus, you are gonna kill me with that picture. I swear I’ve seen it in a movie, but I can’t remember which one. It will drive me insane until I remember.

    As for the truck, that looks like Exhibit A for “unwinnable war”, or more accurately, unwinnable while maintaining some semblance of democracy or ethics.

    If I saw that truck on the street, it would be enough to make me piss my pants or have a coronary. Not a pleasant thought.

    The tubes under the bed of the dump body are heating manifolds, not rocket launchers. Blacktop, also known as “Hot Mix Asphalt” for paving roads, is made from various sized stone, sand, & liquid asphalt that is mixed at a plant & dropped into the dump truck hot. In order to get the asphalt to the job site & install it, it must remain hot. The truck has a heating system that runs under the dump body to do this. I’m sure the photo will circulate & create hysteria now.

      Even though the odds are slim, can I tell people you’re the Steve Perry from Journey?

        You know for me it’s just an interesting internet puzzle. I’m not going to get excited about propaganda from either side. The truth is they don’t need elaborate trucks to shoot rockets and the Israeli policy is to come in and stomp everything flat when they get shot at. It all sounds retarded to me.

Let us know what you think. Being on-topic is NOT required.
