The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Associated Press promotes the Blogosphere?

One of this blog's very best friends has posted a photo to the newswire that slipped by me at first. Here's the original:

Palestinian youths walk by a section of Israel's separation barrier near the West Bank city of Ramallah, Tuesday, June 5, 2007, on the 40th anniversary of the start of the Six Day War. In the 1967 fighting, Israel seized the West Bank and part of Jerusalem from Jordan and the Gaza Strip from Egypt, putting it in control of land that some Israelis see as God-given and others see as a burden.

I made a mental note of it because it's an image that's been noted before, elsewhere along the wall. Leftists from all around the world are sure to scrawl just about any manner of propaganda that they can on the "apartheid" wall, so it wasn't unusual to see another shot of a familiar piece of graffiti. And then, I noticed the writing towards the centre of the picture, and pulled down a higher-resolution copy from the AP wire archives:

"www.bethlehemghetto.blogspot.com" Click to view full-size.


Apparently, our illustrious photographer has no qualms with using the Associated Press wire services to transmit what is essentially a free advertisement for an anti-Israeli blog. And the editors at the Associated Press have no qualms with publishing it.

Good to know that the AP has decided to start promoting the blogosphere. Congratulations to Bethlehem Bloggers for the success of their new, multi-billion dollar promotion. (If any of my Zionist friends wishes to "accidentally" spray an advertisement for Snapped Shot on that "racist" wall, I'd be gladly willing to pay peanuts for it. Maybe even donuts!)

As a bonus, I've posted the latest "Racist, Apartheid Graffiti" beyond the fold. Hope you enjoy the nutty propagandistic goodness!
