A Shitty Way to Die

This would really stink, literally.
At least four Palestinians drowned in a tsunami of raw sewage on Tuesday when a water treatment reservoir burst, flooding a village in the northern Gaza Strip.

The deluge, triggered by the collapse of a septic system aid organisations had long warned was dangerously overburdened, submerged dozens of homes in the Bedouin farming village of Umm al-Nasr beneath a cesspool of foul-smelling effluent.
Sounds like a pretty good metaphor for the plight of the Palestinian people, trapped as they are between the competing interests of Israel, Hamas and Fatah.

The fact that it's not a metaphor is too gross for words.
