Seriously? Do you really want to do this? Okay... everybody go back to the top of the thread and read every single post. When you have done done that, report back here.
-What was your intention in derailing the thread?
-Are or were you seeking to have the thread closed? Would you prefer if it were?
-Why are you making such a huge issue out of semantics and the OP's posting history?
-Does the fact you disagree with the OP's position on a number of issues make the issue pointed out in the 1st post of this thread any less legitimate?
It's not a question of disagreeing on issues, as such, it's an objection to his manipulation of truth. Corruption is trying to make you believe things that simply are not true.

-The truth: Some guy in Saudi Arabia took some pictures
-The manipulation: One of those pictures was taken and used as propaganda in the Syrian crisis, and a social media campaign (which I personally witnessed when I was still on FB) rose up around the premise that the child in the picture was dead, when he wasn't.
-The OP: Points out this fact
Yet for some reason you continually implied that the OP was dodging your question about orphans in Syria (which he wasn't, page after page after page).
Of course there are orphans in Syria and there are innocent victims that have died at the hands of both the Assad regime and the rebels.
That has nothing to do with the fact that the picture featured in many news articles, blogs, and social campaigns was used as propaganda (and thus disinformation) and the OP pointed it out in this thread. I'm floored you actually have people on your side on this issue. It's black and white.

“Most of the explosives in the country are sourced in the IDF,” with soldiers bringing home “souveneirs” that end up on the street, said Danino. “We of course work very closely with the army, and we are seeking ways to ensure that these explosives are seized. This has been going on for a long time, but it has been getting worse in recent years.”
