I found this news photograph at Power Line. The Associated Press caption reads: A Palestinian woman reacts over relatives moments after they were killed in an Israeli missile strike outside their home in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip,Thursday, Jan. 8, 2009. Five Palestinians were killed in the strike, Palestinian medical sources said.
Isn't it amazing that the photographer was right there and wasn't even harmed by the bomb that "killed" these Palestinians? What a great photographer he must be! He was able to perfectly frame the shot and snap the photo just as the woman reacts to finding her "family" members "killed." Just as amazing are her nice hair-do, earrings and clothing. Obviously she likes to dress nice in the midst of a war, even forgoing the usual chador or veil.
You can bet that two seconds after he snapped the photo the two fakers pretending to be dead got up and asked, "Did you get it? Should we do it again?"
The "Palestinians" are famous for posed and faked photography to use as propaganda that the mainstream media so willingly desseminates. This fake photography has become so well known and documented in the blogosphere that it has taken on the name of "fauxtography."
And what if the photo turns out to be a rare real photograph? Well then, those who live by the bomb quite probably will die by the bomb.
Perhaps we can use this photo for a "caption that photo" contest. My choice: "What?? Are you bums drunk AGAIN??
