Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
Are these the same familiar faces we've commented on before? The guy in the second row, 2nd from the right seems to be familiar, from where I'm sitting in any case.
The guy all the way to the left in the front row looks familiar as well. (Update--And I believe the guy second from the right in the front row is none other than Mahdi Abu Ghazaleh
, the spokesman of Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.)
Curiously enough, Nasser Ishtayeh was one of the photographers who sent in the last set of pictures
surrounding this particular Al Aqsa
in the story previous to that
, where I'd originally spotted "Jughead."
Does Nasser Ishtayeh (ap
) associate freely with Al Aqsa
, a rather notorious terrorist group
? He sure does seem to be around whenever they do anything photogenic. I'll be sure to keep my eyes peeled for corresponding pictures from Abed Omar Qusini (reuters
), who for some reason tends to show up wherever Nasser does.

shown to terrorist press conferences by the press, see my previous coverage
