"The bra is a security threat" at Ben Gurion airport

The girl and I walked back together, alone. “You know…” she began “I’ve been working here for 1.5 years and I have never seen them do something like that.”
“Do something like what?” I asked. She looked up at me with a crease in her forehead, “make someone take off their bra…”
“I hope it’s the last time” I told her. She looked ahead into the terminal. We stopped talking.

Israeli army sprays sewage on the streets of the Palestinian town of Abu Dis
Could also be 3-Methyl-1-butanethiol, aka “skunk water”
Testimony: "Last night [25 September] a new weapon by the Israeli army against the people in Abu Dis: they drove round the main streets and sprayed sewage water everywhere – descriptions are of the really disgusting smell absolutely everywhere. It entered the houses and the kids’ rooms – and it didn’t clear like teargas apparently does. It hung around in the fabric inside houses and made everyone fear for their health: rumours of possible viruses are going around.
The Israeli army have been using a lot of tear gas recently in Abu Dis. The children in the Abu Dis schools have lost many of the first school days in Abu Dis, as the army have been shooting tear gas into school playgrounds as well as around the nearby university.
We [Cadfa] are writing to our MP, asking him to ask the Foreign Office to enquire about this, in order to protect the people (and in particular the children) in the face of such attacks. You may want to do the same.

Does anyone have contact with news media that might cover this particularly the sewage spraying? We know it is not the first time in Palestine – have heard of it in Nabi Saleh and Bil’in when there have been demonstrations, and then last Friday [20 September] in Aizariah next to Abu Dis. But this is the first time in our “twin” town, right in the middle of all the families, and it must not be allowed to become routine (anywhere)!”

In the end, the manager tells an employee, ‘here, take this and put it in your nescafe.’
