Israel Gives Every Palestinian A Key

palestinian-tear-gasTHIS image of Israel is from the Associated Press – and lest you mistake it for a shot of a sleeping man, it is captioned as follows:

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. The rally marked the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who either fled or were driven out of their homes during the 1948 war over Israel’s creation.

As Aussie Dave says:

Yeah, he passed out.

With one hand raised in the air in defiance, and the other still grasping a really big key, that just so happens to be held right in front of the camera.

Taking a great picture is all about being in the right palce at the agreed time…
