The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Distinct symbolism

Caged imams?
Ah, it's so refreshing when one sees a series of photographs distinctly framed with the intent of inflaming anger. Take this series of photographs, for instance. Ordinarily, you can find our press far behind enemy lines, offering aid and comfort to the enemy. In this series, however, we see our able fauxtographers carefully positioned with the Israelis. Their intent? Well, how about I just let the photographs speak for themselves.

I can't be any more clear, by the way:—These photographs are NOT newsworthy by any definition of the word. They harken back to the proven fakeries which led up to the Kosovo war in the late 90's (will link to a description later), and add nothing to the debate, other than to provide radical Muslims with ammunition to spread amongst their hate-filled flocks.

The fact that TWO mindless dolt fauxtographers picked up on this particular angle speaks volumes about how morally corrupt the entire photojournalism field has become.

Mr. Hashlamoun, Mr. Shiyoukhi: You should be ashamed of yourselves. You are nothing more than base propagandists.

Pope Benedict said on Wednesday that his use of medieval quotes portraying a violent Islam did not reflect his views and were misunderstood, but he did not give the clear apology still demanded by many Muslims.
