    Wow, it's just so freaking amazing the power of that one single photo. Totally changed my entire world view in re the ME. OMFG!

    Or maybe not. Maybe I still think its all the result of a bunch of hardheaded morons on the other side of the planet.
    Simon,

    Why are you taking pains to stand in an illusory middle ground? There was nothing "moronic" about Israel's response. They were well within their rights to interdict and the soldiers responded to violence with violence. Israel was right and the flotilla was wrong.

This case is being blown out of proportions because it happens to fit in the Fox News view of that media are biased against Israel and that is rich coming for a news organisation that is biased FOR Israel and highly biased on all other fronts.
    Pete,

    Why are you fixating on Fox News? They merely reported a factual occurrence, that is, Reuters cropped a photo; the editorializing was added by a blogger, not Fox News.

    Are you trying to say that Reuters didn't crop the photo, because that's the only thing Fox News has reported here. I honestly don't understand why you keep bringing them up.

    The point is there is no proof for ANY of the possible events and therefore putting a picture up that suggests one is a political move.

    I am in no pain.

    From what I can tell, it takes two to tango. Remove either side and the issue goes away. It takes both the Israelis and the Palestinians being hard-headed to make a conflict over there.

    People go back and forth about who has the right to what and the right to do what. Blah, blah, blah. You know what? All that talk about who's right hasn't helped one bit.

    I may be wrong.

    Well actually you couldn't be more wrong.
    It takes only one side to start a conflict.

    Simon,

    It takes two to tango, yes, but we're not talking about dancing right now. Hamas is engaged in an aggressive military campaign against the Jews simply because of a perceived religious obligation to exterminate them. Obviously, this is not the Jews or Israel's fault.

    People go back and forth about who has the right to what and the right to do what. Blah, blah, blah. You know what? All that talk about who's right hasn't helped one bit.

    It hasn't helped because one side is a peaceable liberal democracy and the other side is a group of religious extremists who are hellbent on exterminating the Jews. I know which side I'm on.

    Yes, FOX News has done stuff like that before, but does that make it OK for Reuters to do the same kinds of photoshopping of pictures? Of course it doesn't. Yet, while you are quick to slam FOX News, you seem to be making excuses for Reuters because FOX News has photoshopped pictures in the past. There is actually no excuse for either, and the only way I can see why you are posting what you are is because you hate Israel for the sake of hating Israel. You seem to have established a pattern here, along with your other posts, that borders on anti-Semitism.

    Moreover, this thread is not about FOX News. It is about Reuters. Feel free to start a thread on FOX News at any time, but this thread is about Reuters photoshopping pictures from the flotilla clash. I can say that I speak for most people here when I ask that you stay on topic, and not attempt to derail this thread, which is NOT about FOX News.

    I know which side I am on as well. I am on the United States' side.

    Since it's so clear cut, perhaps we can have it all worked out before the half-hour episode is over.
    I may be wrong.

    I don't think one actually requires a "side" to conclude that Reuters engaged in journalistic dishonesty here and then vigorously denied a nefarious motive.

    Indeed, you don't have to be a surgeon to recognize a hack job.
