More fauxtos.

Now, if we can only get the reporters/fauxtographers to start taking photos of EACH OTHER.

That would be fun!

Omigosh! Is that Minnie Mouse's shattered corpse peeking out from beneath the Israel-spawned rubble of peaceful southern Lebanon???!!! How HORRIBLE! Alert the media!

More graphic evidence that the Joooooooooz are warmongering imperialist running dogs bent on world domination!

Seriously, I wonder what the networks and dead-tree media would do if people started faking up these kinds of pictures and sending them in.

Dear Channel 6: This video was transmitted to me by a personal friend who in Tyre at this very moment. You will see that the hate-filled IDF is targeting innocent women and children in their unholy war against the peace-loving Palestinian people. Warning: this footage is very graphic. Then tape pictures of IDF-uniformed soldiers dragging Big Bird behind a bombed-out building and putting the boots to him. Or a picture of an adorable infant with a baby seal head impaled on a piece of rebar. You know, the stuff Reuters trains its photogs to do ...

The AP photographers' lives aren't worth a plugged nickel now around the Hezzi murderers, since they exposed one of their tricks for staging scenes.

Serious question: How do we know the pictures were not taken in the order 3 - 2 - 1?

Really the only thing that may indicate he took them out of suitcase is doll clothes, unless, of course, he fixed the doll before putting it in the suitcase.

Note: I of course believe they go 1-2-3, but in terms of absolute concrete proof - what proof beyond reasonable doubt is there #1 was taken first chronologically?

I've been noticing this - on so many news reports there's a child's toy perched ON TOP of the rubble (never under, never dirty... and never a word from our beloved media pointing out this BS).

The Israelis sure want to destroy that Minnie Mouse doll. Its building was attacked on both the 27th and 28th.

I missed these photos on the front page of all the MSM papers today. I missed these photos on all the major TV channels. Did all the cowards in the US Congress get these photos? I'm sure that Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Queen Hillary, Chuckie Schumer, Feingold, McCain, and the rest of the disbelievers are shocked. Wake up America!

This has been discussed quite extensively on a number of other sites (and probably here as well). Here is the original AP caption:

Photo

AP
Thu Jul 27, 7:07 AM ET

A Lebanese man salvages some of his childrens toys from the rubble of his destroyed house that was hit during an Israeli air strike in the southern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon, Thursday July 27, 2006. Israeli jets pounded suspected Hezbollah positions across Lebanon Thursday, extending its air campaign a day after suffering its highest one-day casualty toll. An Israeli Cabinet minister said lack of agreement on a cease-fire gave Israel a green light to press deeper to wipe out the Islamic militant group.(AP Photo/Hussein Malla)

If you look closely you can see that the Minnie Mouse doll had been photographed upstage, closer to the building. I guess it is possible he picked that up first then went down to the suitcase. But not very likely.

This is a two-fer! We've busted a Hezbo staging the news for photogs in Lebanon. And we've also busted the Reuters caption writer for telling a blatant, Hezbo-symp LIE about the scene.

If we find that any of the photos were photoshopped we'd have a trifecta of Hezbo-symp propaganda disguised as news reports and photos.

He may have been putting the doll back in. Look closely at the suitcase, I don't see tinky-winky or Minnie mouse in it. Can you logically explain why, if it was the last picture taken, minnie and tinky aren't visible?

I sure can't. The only logical explanation for me is that he is returning the doll after staging minnie and tinky, if he is in fact placing the doll in the suitcase. In either case, it's blatantly obvious that this man isn't cleaning up from a bomb, he's emplacing propaganda. Add the proof of how clean the toys are, and this media hit piece is busted.
