Martyr on the Wall


The AP has published this photo of a palestinian woman, having to restore order in her simple house after those mean IDF soldiers turned everything upside down.


A Palestinian woman restores her back a room after Israeli troops raided a house in the Al Ain refugee camp of the West Bank city of Nablus, Monday, March 10, 2008. According to Palestinian and Israeli sources 21 people were arrested during the overnight operation. (AP Photo/Nasser Ishtayeh)

But while AP photographer Nasser Ishtayeh clearly has an agenda, he’s (perhaps carelessly) left a clue that would suggest where the woman’s sympathies lie (and therefore why her house was justifiably “raidable”).

Unless you think the picture of the young man in a military jacket is just art.
