Jon Donnison of BBC, journalistic integrity, whatever

First of all, an important disclaimer: right now, people of Gaza are dying in reality, among them women and children, to provide Hamas masters their revolting propaganda feed. It is impossible to remain apathetic to their suffering.

But then there is suffering and there is media, and... but it's better to see that than to read that (but you should do both).

A BBC war reporter made a shocking blunder by tweeting a photograph of an injured child from Syria but indicating she was from Gaza.
So, folks, what you shall see immediately is not Gaza:

This, on the other hand, is Gaza (but not right now, rather during earlier, happy and peaceful times):

So there.

Well, nothing to do about it: children of all ages die. Including these under age of 13.

Their innocence I will buy. But not the adolescents. Even Judaism considers 13 the dividing line.

Indeed, but the fathers only wish it were true independence from 13. Why thirteen, I shall buy 30 as well ;-)
