The war in Gaza has sparked several new takes on the Ice Bucket Challenge with Palestinians dumping buckets of rubble over their heads and an Israeli dousing himself with manure.In Gaza, where the bombardment has meant water is in drastically short supply and electricity shortages make iced water practically nonexistent, local journalist Ayman al-Alul has come up with the "Rubble Bucket Challenge".On the other side of the border in the Israeli kibbutz of Nir Yitzhak, located in the "Gaza envelope," Israeli farmer Saar Altman has come up with a slightly more pungent take on the craze.The "Gaza Envelope" refers to communities that lie within 7 kilometers of the Gaza border.
