The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Yet Another Tiresome Alignment

Nasser Shiyoukhi, of the wire-service-that-shall-remain-nameless, has taken yet another picture of Israeli soldiers, ruthlessly pointing their guns at some poooooor, innocent Palestinian children.

I'd love to show you the picture, but as you know, I can't. So I'll just have to send you over to Honest Reporting, who has it directly from a glorious half-page spread on the front page of the Globe and Mail.

For the record, Shiyoukhi has previously managed to align an Israeli soldier's gun with a Palestinian child's head here. 'Course, Nasser's not the first to do this—our own buddy Muhammed Muheissen did it too, though I don't think he appreciated my commentary on the matter at the time. (Not that I had put things in the most diplomatic of terms, of course... ;) )

Update: Here's another tiresome alignment I'd love to show you, courtesy AP photographer Tara Todras-Whitehill. Of course, since it's an AP asset, I won't touch it with a 10-foot pole. (Yet.)

I covered a photo almost identical to this one way back during this protest, from Reuters photographer Ammar Awad. I think my commentary on the obviously propagandistic composure of this type of photograph is as accurate today as it was then, so forgive me for letting my previous quote stand:

Yeah, we get it, the EVIL ZIONIST ENTITY is a HORRIFIC ZIONIST POLICE STATE. Blah blah blah. But seriously, are obviously framed photographs like [this] really necessary?

Update again—I may not be able to show you the pictures, but I sure as heck can tag them. Rawwwwrrr!

I'm a korean living in seoul.(name: Oh Minseok)
Korean special investigative team are investigating samsung
But they do not work right.
I am suspicious to be bought off.
samsung corporation has many crimes.
And the team investigates samsung corporation.
It contains korean companies samsung,huyndai,sk CEOs' illegal issuing
stocks or bonds.
The quantity are plenty.
(Three company CEOs did(and are doing) many crimes to me.
Many koreans are knowing it.
But many koreans are bought off by illegal issuing stocks or bonds.)
The team are knowing it.
Korean special investigative team must investigate this.
But they are trying to conceal it.
I ask for asking for this criminal investigation to prosecutors in any
And help the shareholders and me.

Three companies are hacking me and trying to kill me.
And are suspicious to use my name and email illegally.
If you receive another message that I dictated above are not true,
it is not from me, but from three companies.
The things I dictated above are true.

Uhhh.. ok?
Not sure what I want to comment on. Brian's post or this rambling lunatic comment.


Ok... post first. Brian, why can these MSM types post photos in unrelated articles but people like you can't do the same? I would love to see Israel SUE their hides for defaming their country and soldiers.

Now the comment...uhhhh... WTH?? Hello, be careful or brian will send you a cease and desist letter for posting a comment in an unrelated story. You know he is gunning to do it. He needs a warm body to stomp on right about now. So, if I were you, I would head on over to the AP(irates) and tell them your story directly. They love these kind of human-interest, gushy, freedom degenerating stories. What would be better, is if you were found to be guilty of bringing down the corporation through illegal means, then AP(irates) will love to do your story. If it shows a major corporation being torn down through illegal means, then they will be happy to be your best friend.
