Something stinks at the WaPo 'again': Palestinian children used as fautography props for casualtiesTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Clearly, the media loves terrorists and their propaganda. And as expected, now comes the "fauxtography" so prominent in the Lebanon war. and as we've all learned by now, no media outlets love to use fake news more than the Reuters, the AP, and the WaPo.
Check out this image carefully. Do you see any blood, dirt, or injuries on the children?
A Washington Post photo essay posted the two pictures above (see at link below) of the Palestinian combatants along with a picture of Palestinian wounded in a Gaza. The picture was accompanied by this caption: Palestinian
children and a man wounded in Israeli missile strikes are seen in the
emergency area at Shifa hospital in Gaza City, Saturday, Dec. 27, 2008.
Israeli warplanes demolished dozens of Hamas security compounds across
Gaza on Saturday in unprecedented waves of simultaneous air strikes.
Gaza medics said at least 145 people were killed and more than 310
wounded in the single deadliest day in Gaza fighting in recent memory.

As I*Consult notes, the children appear healthy. Would the photographer and caption writer, Khalil Hamra, fake a picture? The answer is a resounding "Yes." Readers will find live-blogging of Israel's operation at IsreallyCool.
