Instead of picking holes in one particular photo outside of any framing context (which you really can't determine merely by looking at it), I suggest you read the substance of the allegations themselves.

The claims are not coming from the 'Palestinians' but from an Israeli human rights group.

In case the BBC is too biased for you - hows about hearing it from the horse's mouth?

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

I'm confused now... so this actually means that neither side can call themselves being in the right? :o

and for the record... purposeful targetting of non-military personel is pathetic. Hiding out with non-military personel just in the hopes that the other-side will "play fair" by the conduct of war rules (Gen Convention) is pathetic also. If one side does it then cries foul when the other side does has no leg to stand on and their complaint is baseless and petty. period.

Was Hezbollah's capture of Israeli soldiers lawful?

The targeting and capture of enemy soldiers is allowed under international humanitarian law. However, captured combatants must in all circumstances be treated humanely.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nassrallah has stated that the captured soldiers will be used to negotiate the release of Palestinian, Lebanese and other Arab prisoners from Israel. The use of captives who are no longer involved in the conflict for this purpose constitutes hostage-taking. Hostage-taking as part of an armed conflict is strictly forbidden under international law, by both Common Article 3 and customary international law, and is a war crime.

According to the Internal Revenue Service, the 400 richest American households earned a total of $US138 billion, up from $US105 billion a year earlier. That's an average of $US345 million each, on which they paid a tax rate of just 16.6 per cent.

erekose, do you have anything bad to say about terrorists?

You've asked this before several times, and I have said (and will say so again) that there is no moral justification for terrorist actions, and that yes, indiscriminate bombing, beheading of hostages is heinous and evil. I don't believe I have ever said otherwise, though to be honest I'm not sure why you even put that question to me, as no reasonable person would claim otherwise.

A number of the articles I have posted simply point out inaccuracies in journalistic reporting of the Israel-Palestine dispute, and the general bias of the US media towards Israel, to the detriment not only of the Palestinians, but of this historical origins of the dispute.

The others offer statistics (as accurate, representative as those may be) and a general overview that puts the dispute into an (arguably) big picture context.

I'm just getting sick of the fact that certain people seem content to post trite cartoons in lieu of serious opinions. You know why? Because its easier to google up a political cartoon than it is to actually do some serious reading and research. After all 'good' satire requires you to have a good understanding of what you're satirising - none of that is on diplay here. There's no actual debate on display, so much as idiotic soundbiting by people eager to vent deeply held prejudices.
