BUILD BABY BUILD !!! ,   United States   (05.15.13)
so like the pals to concoct their own version of their own home made 'history.' No one believes these pal liars no one.
2. scraping the bottom of the barrel
elijah   (05.15.13)
time after time ... digging our own grave
3. It's obviously fake.. just look at it
Amy ,   Sydney   (05.15.13)
Just by looking at it, it's clear that the picture was touched up a bit. Is the photographer even denying this?
4. Pallywood
Abu Yussef al Yahudi ,   Bue_Aires-Argentina   (05.15.13)
Typical behavior of the ersatz "Palestinians". "Pallywood" is creating every day fake photos, videos and films to blame Israel of "bad" or "inhuman" acts that never happened in reality. What a bunch of hypocrites and liers they are !!
5. humanity sucks!!!
Ruba ,   Jerusalem   (05.15.13)
regardless if it was photoshoped or faked or not, shame on extremetech and the world press! all forgot the concept and the miserable sadness in the photo and started thrwoing silly accusations! humanity sucks!
6. Damn
Ricky ,   The Bronx   (05.15.13)
You Jews(no pun) really do hate these people,,,,,,,,,,,Damn
7. The Palestinian lie
Eyal ,   USA Israel   (05.15.13)
The world sympathizes with the lie of the fake Palestinians.
8. I have found one area that is clearly
Israel will not fall   (05.15.13)
made of two photos. Look at the two men in the front on the left side. The man on the left has a very large head in contrast to the one next to him making it look like he was pasted behind the one next to him holding the child. Now I'll look for the rest of the discrepancies... Shameful Hansen!
9. More...
Israel will not fall   (05.15.13)
Third row a man is pasted against the wall, almost blending in with it.. :-) The figure on the extreme right also looks pasted in and maybe he and the one holding the infant are both from another photo. If I could see a high quality version I could be more certain and find more fakes and check the lighting issues. So yes this photo is clearly a fake.
10. fraud
Benny ,   Riom, France   (05.15.13)
The zionist state is the real fraud as is rour so called return in a country where none of rour russian ancestors put a foot ont it.

just one question: where jews are from?
13. The picture looks like a reproduction
J.K. ,   Brooklyn USA   (05.15.13)
of the last supper.
14. 10 Benny.the Jews are really strange,
J.K. ,   Brooklyn USA   (05.15.13)
to turn rocky hills into orchards,to clear deserts and swamps, while suffering from malaria,living in tents, eating bread and olives,besides,every acre purchased from the arabs,was paid triple it's value,you are not a muslim,why do you hate Jews ?.
15. The Children are Still Dead
J ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (05.15.13)
And the photo, composed or not, doesn't change that sad fact.
16. big PICTURE = Jewish occupation & terror
Adam ,   USA   (05.15.13)
Jewish occupation and terror in Palestine has been going on for about 70 years; one pic here or there will not change the big PICTURE. This crap makes no difference when TIME comes..
17. it also does not change the fact that
ofer   (05.15.13)
thousends of children died in syria in the same time but no one cares and they dident won
18. # 15
Rodney ,   C.T. SA.   (05.15.13)
If the children were dead they would be as white as sheets. Or were they made up by their parents before being carried through the streets.
19. #17 What does Syria have to do with this???
J ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (05.15.13)
Where not talking about Syria so lets not sidetrack and point the finger elsewhere. Having said that, all lives are precious and 10 dead Gazan children or 10,000 dead Syrian children are unacceptable: call it human decency. Just so happens that Israel has more control on what goes on in Gaza and it's environs so lets leave out Syria for another discussion. (If you're so concerned, donate to charities helping Syrians.)
20. #18
J ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (05.15.13)
Are you denying that civilian men, women and children died? Do the actions of a corrupt photographer change that fact? Does proving the photo a fake change that fact that a war happened (again) and millions were terrorized on both sides of the border all the while 4 generations of politicians have failed to provide the ever so elusive peace they always promise?
21. # 10
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (05.15.13)
Don't you have Bibles and history books in France? You should take this up with God since you don't seem to agree with him.
22. Digital propaganda
Ans ,   Canada   (05.15.13)
It is very easy to verify if the the photograph was digitally altered. Every photograph taken digitally has a digital stamp, the date, time, size and the model of the camera. Once the original is altered, the digital stamp takes note. Therefore, all the photographer has to show the original shot and after that it is easy to see if the photo was Photoshopped. No need for big experts... So Mr. Hansen should be challenged to show his original digital photograph. If he can't or unwilling, we know that he is just another anti-Semite, trying to discredit Israel.
23. To: No. 20
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (05.15.13)
It's important to look at the reasons why civilians died. The fact that terrorists in Gaza launch missiles and mortars from populated areas does not in any way mitigate Israel's absolute and affirmative duty to protect and defend the citizens of the State of Israel. Why should Israel defer its security obligations to the despicable behavior of Hamas (and other) terrorists who operate along Israel's borders? No one wants civilians to die, but it is an unfortunate fact of war. The blame, however, accrues exclusively to the terrorists who hide behind civilians. If they use the roof of an apartment building from which to launch missiles at Israel, that roof becomes a legitimate military target.
24. Any and every "technique" used in vilifying The Jew is accep
tom ,   tel aviv   (05.15.13)
ted by the antisemitic, leftist "World -Opinion". Not a big surprise here. The picture looked more than suspicious from the very begining.
25. #19 What does it have to do with Syria?
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (05.15.13)
#17 is pointing out the fact that much of the world uses a double standard when judging Jews and judging Arabs and Muslims. It's a valid point and you should be able to understand that.
26. article
honesty ,   golabl   (05.16.13)
if u want to see enhanced pics look at the IDF's pics of the killings on the Turkish ship
27. No 10
Cohen ,   Israel   (05.16.13)
You embarass yourself with your poor understanding of the history of Jewish people.Jews have been in Israel for thousands of years before Arabs who came from Arabia arrived .Also many Jews come from Arab countries NOT from Russia.
28. #25 It's because we hold ourselves to a higher standard
J ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (05.16.13)
Yes, there is a double standard and I've experienced it first hand. We Jews hold ourselves to a higher standard and it's silly and immature when our response to an argument is "it's worst there." Yes, it is and will always be and it should be taken as a justification or a way out of an accusation. It's cheap, manipulative and a total disregard to those who died whom we disregard are a 'stam' statistic.
29. To: No 23 History Lesson
J ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (05.16.13)
How convenient: "it's Hamas' fault." Well, any political and military strategist with half a brain would have known that war would be inevitable after the unilateral pullout in 2005 and subsequent lock down of the Gaza strip: a place that is a concentration camp in every sense but name. Oh, one more thing to ponder: soon after the pullout the peace process stalled (again) because Israel refused to negotiate unless the Palestinians held elections. Of course Hamas won because the only other option was a corrupt organization that has continuously failed to deliver on their promises while lining their pockets with donated funds (Israel claims the same). And when Israel didn't like the election results, they shut the door again. Chutzpah. Now we face Gazan tantrums in the form of rockets. Voila.
30. How do we know that these children were
Zev ,   Israel   (05.16.13)
killed by Israeli fire and not by "friendly fire" or maybe they actually died of other causes. Beware of Palestinian propaganda. I do not believe anything they say until it is proven beyond a doubt.
