When Photo Bias Goes Horribly Wrong
Arab (and part Japanese?) AP photographer Nasser Shiyoukhi shoots a photo of a palestinian man flinching in reaction to clashes with Israeli soldiers.
I can imagine he’s probably quite pleased with himself, depicting the fear of a palestinian man when up against the might of the Israeli army.
Perhaps he’s even dreaming about accepting his award for photograph of the year.
That is, until, he’s confronted with one of his worst nightmares.
What was meant to show the plight of the palestinians has now humanized an Israeli. And not just any Israeli, but a settler.
I’m not sure if Nasser Shiyoukhi is a drinking man, but if he is, I’m sure he’s having a strong one right now.
