Paint guns vs 'peace' activists

Turkey (or is it now Turkistan?) publishes photos of the brutal beatings of IDF soldiers by the flotilla ‘peace’ activists on the front page of its leading newspaper.

Gee, somehow I must have missed these photos in the mainstream liberal media.

But notice how Reuters altered this photo.

A Turkish newpaper has released photos taken by the “peace activists” aboard theMavi Marmara, showing them attempting to take injured Israeli soldiers hostage. Here’s one of the pictures; notice the knife held by a “peace activist” in the lower right corner:

And here’s the same photo as released by Reuters later in the day:

That’s a very interesting way to crop the photo. Most people would consider that knife an important part of the context. There was a huge controversy over whether the activists were armed. Cropping out a knife, in a picture showing a soldier who’s apparently been stabbed, seems like a very odd editorial decision.

Unless someone was trying to hide it. And this wouldn’t be the first time Reuters was caught doing this: doctoring photos from Beirut
