"#so_what" is a new hashtag appearing on Palestinian social media as a slogan which is being used to encourage Palestinians to continue rioting, throwing rocks and using violence against Israelis. The words refer to a video that went viral, showing an elderly Palestinian man arguing with Israeli soldiers. A soldier points to rioting Palestinians, saying: "They're throwing rocks at us." The old man replies: "So what, let them throw rocks."
