Neighbor who flies Palestinian flag. What's up with that?

Not my neighbor. My parents live in San Diego. Small residential suburban neighborhood. A couple blocks away there is a house with a flag poll in front and the guy flies the Palestinian flag every day. I don't know what the guy's deal is, if he is Palestinian or if it's some kind of political statement.

My folks have said it's been stolen a couple of times, but the guy keeps putting up new ones.

To me it seems like a pretty extreme statement. Any thoughts?

If you can put up your USA flag then he can put up his flag, too.

Israel and Palestine? I hear there's two sides to the story. Don't know why it would be an "extreme statement".

Crazy, I know!

Seems tacky and pretentious, unless he has some personal involvement.

I'd recommend approaching him, and saying, "Fuck fucking Palestine. Go bag to Palestine, you Palestinian loving fuck. Have the whole fucking continent of fucking Asia for yourself! Fucking mouth breather!"

Then walk away.

Would you have the balls to fly one in front of your house? I know I wouldn't. I would feel (1) like I'm putting a target on my head or (2) like I'm looking to provoke a conflict.

I feel like Mabuse uses this forum to work through material that will eventually comprise a terrible stand up comedy set.

If I had a personal connection with Palestine then yes, I would fly the flag.

The bigger assholes are the ones stealing his flag.

The Israel-Palestine conflict is a good lead into airplane peanut jokes. Don't forget the props!

If people can fly the treasonous flag of the Confederacy which caused the deaths of over a half million Americans, why not?

Speaking of Oregon, I visited the Goonies house last year in Astoria an the owner was flying an Isreali flag. Maybe we should try to arrange a meeting with them and Mabuse's neighbor.

Definitely serious. I'm going down over MLK weekend. I'll get a picture. Maybe it's on google street view I'll go check.
