I'm not sure I fully made me understood.
ARP packets aren't IP packets. They don't have IP src and destination.
If you send an ARP packet
- from any MAC address to the MAC address of 126.96.36.199,
- a reply claiming that 188.8.131.52 is at another MAC address
(at the same time claiming that 184.108.40.206 is at its own MAC address, in
the requestor field of the ARP packet; I'm not sure what happens if you
use a 4th machines data there)
the message should be seen.
(This is a fine, but necessary distinction.)
