According to a Jewish ynet report, Nakhba day was observed with demonstrations in what the Israelis call “the Arab sector” of Israel as well as in the West Bank and in Gaza, in Cairo and in Tehran.
Except for a few stones thrown by teenagers at checkpoints, quickly responded to with their customary gentle firmness by the IDF, the event was without violence in Israel and the occupied territories (OT).
The ynet report notes that Israeli flags were burned — which is in fact injurious violence in its own way — in all the locales, and supplies the photographs to prove it.
No figures are given for how many flags were burned in Israel and the (OT) but, interestingly enough, the report informs the reader with precision that during the Nakhba demonstration in Teheran 64 Israeli flags were burned and stepped on. That is indeed high-value information yet it prompts many questions.
What wikipedia has to say about 64 scares me stiff because I don’t understand a word of it but know enough to sense that it is rather ominous:
It is the smallest number with exactly 7 divisors, the lowest positive power of two that is adjacent to neither a Mersenne prime nor a Fermat prime, the sum of Euler’s totient function for the first fourteen integers. It is also a dodecagonal number and a centered triangular number. It is a superperfect number [emphasis added, wikipedia does not emote) – a number such that σ(σ(n))=2n.
Just who is sending a message to whom and what is the message?!
