AP Beirut Photo Raises Questions (Burka Lady)
ynetnews.com ^ | August 8, 2006 | Yaakov Lappin

Posted on 08/08/2006 10:22:21 PM PDT by jiggyboy

A woman has made two appearances in photographs used by the Associated Press and Reuters, allegedly wailing over the destruction of her Beirut home. US bloggers have however noticed that photographs were taken two weeks apart from each other, according to times stamps on the images, and that the photographs were taken in different locations.

"Either this woman is the unluckiest multiple home owner in Beirut, or something isn't quite right," noted the author of the Drinking From Home blog.

Geez you'd think that every source from the Middle East was suspect. We must be overreacting or something.

she's everywhere, she's everywhere!!

I wonder if they pay her, or if she just volunteers to be photographed everywhere for the Hezzholes.

My wild (but not outrageous) guess is that this cow is either related to the "green helmet" guy, or connected to him somehow...

NO doubt...they must think we are so dumb that we wouldn't notice it!Oh, and that person (woman?)looks like Uncle Fester (the Adams Family) in drag. Look at the huge hands. I guess they get big hands from lugging those Katusha (sic) rockets up and down the steps of her (it's) basement.

Many people don't distinguish between advertising and news photos really. They are drawn to these iconic photos, but don't do any critical thinking about them. They only know it makes them feel a certain way.

This photo was done by Hussein Malla, I think, who was at the Qana UN riot. He's been all over Lebanon and Iraq as well.

After due consideration, I have concluded that Helen Thomas is uglier, if only because her evil spans decades...and you have no idea how much pain I experienced comparing those two.

Sad but true. Is the best we can hope for a Saturday Night Live skit or a few jokes from Leno? Faking the news should be one of the top stories, but it's not. The media is hoping to whistle past the graveyard on this because it goes on more often than they want to admit.

The guy behind her looks like he's out for a stroll in the park.....he's quite unconcerned about her 'misfortune', or maybe it's just that he's bored with all the rehearsal's she went through to get the right pose.

The disturbing make believe photos from this disturbing make believe event are shown below. Don’t allow children under the age of 30 to view this horror caused by Israel. Of course, this is Bush's fault.
