Talk about overreacting! It does appear that some members posting on this thread have an agenda, but the finger is pointing in the wrong direction.
Get a grip, people! It's apparent that many if not most of you are blinded by your bias favoring Israel. Take a long thoughtful look at what
you've written here. Maybe your filters will weaken just long enough for a glimmer of truth.
The original post on this thread proclaims that photo 6 shows a "worker switch roles and play dead while what appears to be staged fires burn in the
Oh, I see now. The unprotected local citizens who are on the scene of a building which has just been completely reduced to rubble by the explosions
of Israeli aerial bombing are staging a scene to make Israel look bad. And Israel bombing of this sort does not start fires. Nasty, scheming,
deceitful Arabs!! I suggest you all go take a cold shower and see a shrink.
The original caption under the supposedly "offending" photo recites that:
The mayor of Tyre said that in the worst-hit areas, bodies were still buried under the rubble, and he appealed to the Israelis to allow government
authorities to pull them out.
The revised caption recites that:
"A man was aided after he was injured in the aftermath of the attack. (This caption has been revised because initially it described the situation
Where's the fraud? It's in your blinking biased imagination and nowhere else!
The original caption does not say that the man who is lying down in photo 6 is dead or that he was killed or injured by the bomb which struck that
building. That man is plainly shown in photos 3 & 4 to be among the people working in the rubble. Where do you muster the audacity to claim that
photo 6 fraudulently implies that this man was killed by the blast at that location? It does nothing of the sort.
This thread is an example of mass hysteria. A small mass, mind you, but mass hysteria none-the-less.
Your assertion that this photo sequence shows fraud on the part of the New York Times is a crock of laughable, ludicrous, nonsense. Have you lost all
capacity to think rationally and see what's right in front of your eyes?
Do you all really believe that Israel's indiscriminate bombing of civilian neighborhoods, roads, and infrastructure is not maiming and burying
innocent men, women, and children? Israel's actions are the product of its proclaimed attitude that a million Arabs are not worth the fingernail of
one Israeli. Give it a rest. You make me ill.
My good will and sympathy toward Israel has been severely damaged by its actions in Lebanon. Israel is committing barbaric atrocities daily. That it
is doing so by use of modern military equipment supplied by the U.S. doesn't lessen the evil of its actions.
The current Israeli regime is without a doubt Israel's own worst enemy. What they are doing in Lebanon goes so far beyond a reasonable civilized
measured response that they deserve worldwide censure. The people of Israel would be well served by a top to bottom regime change. But, then, who
knows whether the replacements would be any better.
Israel's supporters among civilized people are jumping ship in droves. I'm ashamed of our government's role in Israel's current atrocities and the
U.S.'s failure to rein Israel in. This really reveals the cold hearted inhumanity of the people in power here today.
May God forgive us for what our leaders are doing, with our passive consent, through their agent Israel in the Middle East. I pray for the welfare of
all those on both sides who are there under compulsion or unable to escape to safety.
