Every year, when the Palestinian whinefest known as “Nakba” rolls around, the wire services dutifully publish photo after photo of Palestinians holding keys, “symbolizing” the loss of their houses in 1948 when the state of Israel was established.
But this year we have the most ridiculous example yet — an obviously staged picture purportedly showing a man “passed out” from tear gas, right next to a dramatic barbed wire fence, holding his right hand in the air in a dramatic fist, and shoving a dramatic Nakba key directly into the lens of the camera.
The Associated Press proves once again that there’s no Palestinian propaganda too crude for them to print.
A Palestinian passed out from tear gas fired by Israeli troops, holds a key symbolizing the keys to houses left by Palestinians in 1948, during a demonstration marking the 61st anniversary of “Nakba,” Arabic for catastrophe, in the West Bank village Bilin, near Ramallah, Friday, May 15, 2008.
