Boy taught to defend Dome of the Rock with stones
Text: “Purification before prayer is performed with stones.”

The official Palestinian daily published a cartoon alluding to the Islamic custom of purification before prayer. In general, purification is performed with water; if there no water is available, sand is used. The cartoon shows a father handing his son a slingshot and telling him that purification before prayer is performed with stones.
