Shameful Propaganda

I think the implications that Muhammed is trying to get across are quite clear:

A young Palestinian girl stands next to an Israeli soldier as her family members, not seen, go through a security check while waiting to cross the Hawara military checkpoint, near the West Bank city of Nablus, Wednesday, May 30, 2007. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)


Muhammed, and whichever AP editor decided that this was newsworthy, deserve nothing less than to be fired immediately. This is blatant propaganda, and it has no place on a reputable (ha) news service.

I'm sure that Palestinians would neeeever allow their children to be near evil guns, right?

Who decided that this photo is blatant propaganda, and it has no place on a reputable (ha) news service! Am really not sorry to say that you are a complete ignorant and have nothing to do with photography or wire services, or maybe you are living in a dark room somewhere never ben close to such situations, so here is my advice to you next time instead of trying to be smart think million of times.

Muhammed,

Good to hear from you! You could say I've been a big "fan" of your work for some time now!

To answer in short, Snapped Shot is my website, therefore it is my [i]opinion[/i] that the photograph above is a shameful piece of propaganda not worthy of a serious news service.

If you think there's a justifyable reason as to why this picture is newsworthy, I'd love to hear it!

Regards,
Brian

Haha--busted, Muhammed!

He's a bit sensitive to criticism, I think.
Or maybe he doesn't like being called out on his obvious (and clumsy) propaganda effort. ;-)

Great composition, Muhammed--if you're trying to plant the false idea that the eeevil Jooooz point weapons at little girls' heads. Idiot.

The picture is real. sorry you don't like it but propaganda goes both ways. If what you say is true then it would be illegal to photograph any war, crime, death, etc. etc. considering the picture might look bad for another! Any photo on this earth should be free to be publicized and if your in the business of the news well.... the more the better.......
