typical staged 'feel good' photo from Reuters today
Is this really one of the Top Photos Of The Day?

and of course, on the same day TWO Evil Joos/Poor Palestinian pix

That's 1) a gunfire exchange you know, like IDF being fired on by heroic 'militants' 2) posed as usual 3) by the same photog who brought you the staged 'tent in the rubble' pix
Oh, nobody told you the raid was to arrest terrorism suspects...sorry, our bad

Steve, I don’t know how you got this particular bee in your bonnet, but it’s not flattering for you.

If this were some marginal site, I would ignore it. However, this is one of the world's major news sources purposefully loading up staged pictures and anti-Israeli bias. The staging, if you follow their 'Photos Of The Day' extend far beyond what I have posted.

That's why.

In contrast to the Reuters bias, here's an AFP (Agence France-Presse) photo from today's Guardian.
Does the violence occur? Yes. Is the photo staged? Probably not.

I'm probably wrong but I thought, on more than one occasion in the past, that you said that The Guardian doesn't show Palestinian aggression.

That’s some pinpoint firing to take out the window but not damage any of the surrounding structure.





BTW, I’m surprised the forum software permitted the photo since its not a .jpg, .gif, or a .png.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Steve, I don’t know how you got this particular bee in your bonnet, but it’s not flattering for you.

Steve seems pretty intent on defending Israel while in his own back yard:

Since 2018, hate crimes against Jews in New York City have resulted in only one perpetrator spending just a single day in jail, according to a report.

An in-depth Sunday piece in the Jewish-centric online magazine Tablet mentioned a report by the group Americans Against Antisemitism that, as the publication put it, “found that of the 118 adults arrested for anti-Jewish hate crimes in New York City since 2018, only one has been convicted and sent to prison.”

Year after year, among religious groups, Jews are the leading target of hate crimes annually in the United States, according to the FBI.

…and I’m not disputing there are plenty of anti-semitic nutjobs out there - one of them left a flyer in my driveway, and I called the police.

But I think that Steve’s repeated assertion that (essentially) any pictures of Palestinians suffering are de-facto proof of anti-semitism by Reuters is more than over-the-top; I think it sounds a little looney, and detracts from outrage over genuine antisemitism or editorial slant in the media.

This has to do with what Reuters pushes on their lead outlets. (I noticed you didn't say anything about the obviously staged propaganda photo from Ukraine)

As I pointed out a couple of posts ago, they do have photos of heavily armed Islamic Jihad members parading in hate Israel parades. But those are not the ones selected for their Photos Of The Day.

So far as The Guardian goes, they have changed their slant over the past year or so. It has apparently finally dawned on them that Hamas and Islamic jihad are in it for their own ideological ends and repress and exploit their subjects. Also Fatah has reached the point of absurdity, with no concern for Palestinians and are more corrupt than ever, being led by a President Abbas now in his 18th year of his 4 year term.

It took them a while to catch on, but even the other Arab countries have stopped significantly supporting the PA and Hamas. The only ones left are Qatar and Iran. Iran's policies are just insane and imperialistic.

At least the BBC has fired their reporters who cry at Arafat's funeral.

See you the next time Reuters thinks that heroic Palestinian youth doing parkour in Gaza ruins strikes their fancy as world important events.

>obviously staged propaganda

I think you have your own personal definition of this word that conflicts with everyone else's.

Its some Alex Jones @#$%&, you should find some vitamins to shill while you're at it.

It does. A city with a population of over 8 million that has some 3-5 million (not sure if that accumulated figure is accurate) Jewish residents that doesn't protect those citizens would seem really out of whack.

Staying on the Reuters/Guardian thing, as I recall you often disagreed with Bibi and his approach to Palestinians while exonerating the state of Israel from responsibility - well Bibi's gone and the state still follows the policies you once attributed pretty much solely to him.

Why does Israel allow what are self-described illegal settlements and use state force to evict Palestinians and protect 'illegal' settlers? How do these state actions lead people to believe Israel has less than robust regard for equity under law?

I completely agree. I have yet to see any reasoning as to why Palestinians in the Israeli controlled West Bank areas were denied building permits.

Also, I think allowing the illegal settlement attempts is unfair and purely political. They should be acted on immediately and people breaking the law should be prosecuted.

Not to get too deep here, but you are actually objecting to violence against military occupiers? And think that those photos should be shown more prominently than the violence of said occupiers against civilian population? Not clear what you are getting to here. If you were talking about attacks on the Israel proper territory, I would understand better.

The expressed purpose of the IDF actions are to arrest terrorists. This is in response to 19 extremist murders of Jewish Israelis over the past few months.

They don't just go around batting away at people. They have specific people they are trying to arrest. Their arrest attempts are met with Molotov cocktails, rocks and organized rifle fire. (In fact, Palestinian gunmen shot down a Palestinian car driver just yesterday with their 'resistance'....oopsie)

ps- if you are looking for thugs dispensing 'street justice' to people they don't like, object to their rule or who have the temerity to protest leadership statements, you'll have to look to the Hamas and Palestinian Authority 'security forces'. That is the way they routinely treat their subjects. (When they are not stealing them blind).

Yup. IDF screwed up. It was a bad day of Jihad shooters...(though not in the immediate vicinity).

Now how about those photos of heroic Islamic Jihadists and their Jew-hate missiles in dynamic silhouette Reuters puts up?
