Caption Rejected, Requires Revision...

It would appear that the esteemed Agence France-Presse does not have any wire editors to spare. They seem to be mixing up the various terrorist factions who inhabit (nay, infest) the Palestinian terror-tories.

Of course, as we covered earlier, the body being carried belongs to a militant from an offshoot of Al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigades, which is itself a "violent" offshoot of the violent Fatah faction. Who, by the way, hate Hamas with a passion:

Residents say it’s enough to wear a beard, associated with Islamist Hamas, to be taken as a target by fighters from secular Fatah. A black and white keffieh, the headscarf symbolic of Fatah, is enough to earn a bullet from Hamas.


A mistake like this could happen to anyone, right?

Y'all can send me a check for the correction whenever you'd like, AFP.
