Actually, the last one looks very staged, just better placement of dust. The paper covered book may have dust, but not a single tear. Herr Goebels would fair these muslims and msm photgraphers for not making them look more authentic.

I can only suppose you believe this a completely unstaged, random snapshot. Can I interest you in some gold bars? Half price, small bills only. They were stolen from a synagogue, so you know they are real.

Hey, how did my tiger get in that picture?

That looks just like the one on the bookcase.

I'm willing to bet these are some of the 900 or so photos that Reuters claims they 'pulled'.

Those toys look in great shape considering a building fell down on them and there is a fire in the background

No. None of these are from Hajj. They only pulled his potfolio. You can find these up on yahoo right now. See my earlier post with the Yahoo links.

Wait a minute!?! Something is fishy about these pictures!?!

Where are the toy AK-47s?
Or the toy suicide bomber backpacks?
Or the toy granades that all Islamofascist kids are trained to use and wear?
Where is the blow-up Ariel Sharon vampire punching bag?

If the guy (post #55) is attempting to show that the toys are pristine because they were protected by the pink case, that doesn't explain why the pink case - alone of everything else in the photo - is pristine and untouched by dust or debris. lol

Also note that pink case is made of plastic

And not a crack on it .. especially after a building supposedly fell on it

Probably the principle of "fake but accurate" is operative here, i.e., "it's true that children were killed, and that they probably had toys, so lets show the toys to underscore the fact that children died, even if we have to plant the toys." Rather and Reuters think alike.

and very often the toy has RED as the predominant color, just to make sure we don't miss seeing it since we are all BLIND and STOOOOPID!

Staged photos are a BIGGER concern. The MSM will now be able to say "OK, Reuters screwed up, see, since they got caught there won't be any more retouched photos!" and move on, *totally ignoring* all of the various staged photos that we've seen in the past month (such as the ones involving Green Helmet Guy and Multiple-Bombed-House Woman). The media has been focusing on the retouched-photo angle, while totally ignoring the faked and staged photos like these with the toys and stuffed animals.

It is probably the same suitcase he transported the toys in for the photographic staging! The photo of him carrying the toys was taken on his return trip, carrying the toys he BROUGHT TO the photo shoot.
Notice how clean the toys are!

I don't know what kind of toys exist in the Middle East; is it in fact common for them to have Wesern-style toys like Mickey Mouse? And can these poor Palestinians even afford what look like brand new off-the-shelf toys, which - in the case of Disney items - are often overpriced even by American standards?

Green Helmet guy has a refrigerated truck loaded with dead children.
It follows that his convoy includes a van filled with teddy bears, children's shoes and pacifiers.

I posted this a few days ago, but it's on topic again:

Posted by musicman to conservativecorner; All

A LITTLE off topic, but I wonder if all these places where the "Koranimals" (i.e. hezzies, hamas, al-etc) live, if there is a "Mr. Haney"( like on the TV show Green Acres, that drove the old truck that seemed to have EVERYTHING on it, when Mr. Douglas had a problem, there was SOMETHING on the truck to sell or RENT to him to help him with out of his current "dilema").

IMHO, there HAS to be a "koranimal" version of "Mr Haney". Heck, it might even be a chain of M.E. "Mr Haneys."

Their trucks are with filled with an assortment of stuffed animals, assorted dolls, baby blankets, childrens' sheets and bedspreads, a hefty supply of bloody bandages, and fake casts, stretchers, and various obscure metal pieces that can be displayed as anti-koranimal bomb parts.

The fleet of "Mr.Haneys" all have mobile phones, and are on 24/7-365 call-up. Got a bombing ya need "dolled-up"?? Call "Mr. Haney M.E.", and he'll show up with his truck with everything you need to make that upcoming CNN photo shoot of a bombing, look like a "no-doubt-what-so-ever" CRIME AGAINST "UNARMED" HUMANITY !!

Sorry for the "rant" my fellow Freepers, but after seeing the "dead kids video" replay for the at least 100th time, it got me thinking of EVERY OTHER STAGED M.E. "photo shoot" like this......

One thing that bothers me. Maybe it's because my children are more destructive with toys in general, but all of the toys in these picture look like they were just bought. My children's well loved toys never look so new.
