Gaza Fauxtography

Lenny Ben-David flags an apparently staged photo of injured in the Gaza Strip:

A Washington Post photo essay posted the two pictures above of the Palestinian combatants along with a picture of Palestinian wounded in a Gaza hospital. The picture was accompanied by this caption:

Palestinian children and a man wounded in Israeli missile strikes are seen in the emergency area at Shifa hospital in Gaza City, Saturday, Dec. 27, 2008. Israeli warplanes demolished dozens of Hamas security compounds across Gaza on Saturday in unprecedented waves of simultaneous air strikes. Gaza medics said at least 145 people were killed and more than 310 wounded in the single deadliest day in Gaza fighting in recent memory. (AP Photo/Khalil Hamra) (Khalil Hamra - AP)

The children appear healthy. Would the photographer and caption writer, Khalil Hamra, fake a picture?

Listen, Achmed, we don't have enough pictures of mutilated;children, pregnant women, and old folks yet. Why don't you run home and bring-back Lilia, Susui, Marwan, and Zayid. Just put them on the table next to martyred Mohammed. OK. Don't forget to put the fake blood on them before the Press arrive!

Achmed! The Press is here! WHere is the fake blood?!
