Palestinian children and a man wounded in Israeli missile strikes are seen in the emergency area at Shifa hospital in Gaza City, Saturday, Dec. 27, 2008. Israeli warplanes demolished dozens of Hamas security compounds across Gaza on Saturday in unprecedented waves of simultaneous air strikes. Gaza medics said at least 145 people were killed and more than 310 wounded in the single deadliest day in Gaza fighting in recent memory. (AP Photo/Khalil Hamra)
“Palestinian children and a man wounded…” What an odd locution! Why not just say, “Wounded Palestinians” or “wounded children lay next to wounded man” or some such? Are the children wounded at all? They look unhappy, but show no visible signs of injury. Did AP photographer Khalil Hamra or his Palestinian contacts place unhurt children next to this apparently wounded man in order to tug at the West’s heartstrings?
Certainly when it comes to faking grievance issues and manipulating the mainstream media, the “Palestinians” are old hands.
