    After the brain-wash, comes the spin cycle.

    Hi, just an FYI, you don’t have to publish this comment.
    I got caned on Twitter a few days back for retweeting this image, because it is not recent, and was not about Gaza. The image is from the 2006 conflict with Lebanon.
    It can be seen here in that context: http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=13453
    Or here: http://www.truthdig.com/eartotheground/item/20060718_israeli_girls_lebanon_bound_rockets
    I’m sure similar things are occurring in the current context, but apparently there’s a lot of fake and out-of-vintage images getting around, and apparently that’s not OK. Just saying…
