Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
From the looks of the wires, it seems that the Palestinian Territories celebrated "Prisoner Day" over the past few days, organizing protests demanding the release of their "relatives," who are currently jailed in Israel for the mere crime of plotting for the death of the Jews and the destruction of the evil, Zionist, Apartheeeeeeid Israeli state.
To a "progressive" and wholly sympathetic press, this obviously doesn't arise to the horror of detention.
Perhaps I'm too much of a Neanderthal to understand the "nuance."
How many angles of the exact same shot
can we get? In case you're wondering, the next few photographs illustrate succinctly why I tend to characterize wire photographers as lemmings (again, with thanks to Richard
for the excellent graphic):
By my untrained eye, there are about 200 people here. Notice, however, that all of the photos are very closely-cropped to create the illusion
of this being a much larger gathering.
Of course, you just KNOW they had to go out with a bang. It wouldn't be a Palestinian
"peace-loving" protest unless something were on fire:
