Still More Principled

This little girl has far more integrity than the entire Media establishment, as it exists today. My hat is off to her for showing the courage to try and deny the media the propaganda they so desperately seek.

Notice how Yonathan, who is obviously looking for a ratings-driven photograph of someone else's suffering, so confidently asserts that this girl's grandmother is only slightly wounded?

I guess he minored in medicine in school, huh?

For the record, here's another fine example of the crocodile tears that propagandists 'round the world love to show you:
