    Seriously? Have you been paying attention. They claimed to be a peace ship, and now you want to argue two seperate excuses? Rather pathetic dood.

    It happens all the time, and Fox News does it constantly when it is not using wrong pictures, or false footage to prove its "facts". Hence, it is ironic like hell that Fox News is calling out Reuters like this. Just shows how biased Fox News is, by using any and all means to "prove" that the IDF is right and the activists are terrorists.. Fox News and facts are an oxymoron.

    I dont know if it was done intentionally or not but one question I do have to ask is how does including or excluding a knife mean they are trying to cast Israel in a bad light? A knife is a knife, there's nothing about the knife itself to suggest it was owned or used by either side. So looking at the picture I don't see anything that would conclusively tell me that knife was used by the ship's personnel or its an Israeli knife. So if it was the intention of Reuters going into this story to report it in a manner biased against Israel, cutting out a knife that could have come from anywhere doesn't really mean that much.

    I couldn't see how someone looking at this picture and, even if they even noticed the knife, having a change of opinion either from pro-Israeli or neutral to anti-Israeli or doubting of Israel's story or even a weakening of their opinion of Israel or Israel's actions. So in other words, I would be inclined to believe Reuters was not attempting any bias or to sway anyone's opinion by doctoring photos simply because if this was the limit of their action towards that goal, than its such a small and perhaps totally ineffective action that it wouldn't by worth the effort and potential fallout unless it was only part of a larger plan/action. I won't be convinced its a conspiracy on the part of Reuters, or someone within Reuters, until more evidence comes up.

    Hamas tortures and uses human shields, we have definitive proof of that. I would rather trust an ally of my country that happens to be a liberal democracy with freedom for all citizens over some theocratic terrorist organization who's goal is to kill all the Jews.

    Israel doesn't do any of those.

    The IDF admits it tortures and has been caught on camera using human shields. As for the definite proof of Hamas ... where?

    And how about not trusting ANY of them?
