It happened before. Back in 2006, Reuters doctored several photos taken by Adnan Hajj to make the damage in Beirut appear more severe than it really was. Now, Reuters has doctored more photos to make the terrorists and militants aboard a Turkish ship that ran the Gaza blockade to appear like “peaceful passengers.”
|The camera never lies, they say — but what if the photos are sent out by the Reuters news agency?
And especially what if they make Israel look bad?
Which is precisely what happened after IHH, the Turkish “humanitarian” group with longstanding terrorist ties, released photos of the bloody clash between its activists and Israeli commandos who boarded a ship trying to break the Gaza blockade.
One photo shows an Israeli surrounded by IHH “peace” activists, one of whom is holding a knife.
The second shows another Israeli lying under a bloodstained railing as a second IHH activist also holds a knife.
At least that’s what appears in the images distributed by The Associated Press.
In the photos distributed by Reuters, there were no knives. And no blood.
The impact being to make it look more like an Israeli massacre of innocent civilians and less like an act of self-defense against armed thugs masquerading as humanitarian workers.
