According to the Reuters caption attached to the above photograph you're looking at masked Palestinian militants from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades asking a shop keeper in Hebron to close his store as part of a general strike to protest against Israeli excavations near the al-Aqsa Mosque compound. I understand most of the shop keepers of Hebron obliged on account of the polite manner in which the request was made because as, you can see, the guys at the Al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigades are such nice folks!

These situations have occurred before and are often used to set the stage for violence.

Stand by.

I can't wait to read the spin O'Loughlin puts onto this one.
