Ha'aretz Caption Hits New Low

From Elder of Ziyon:

In the middle of an otherwise fairly straightforward news article about Israel releasing female prisoners, Ha'aretz illustrates the story - and captions the photo - this way:

How objective Ha'aretz is!

UPDATE: The inevitable, silent correction:

If the Arabs thought 1027 Arabs to one Israeli was a racist ratio they could have released Shalit for one or two Arabs.

This reminds me of one of the racist parts of the US Constitution, in which slaves were counted as 60% of a free person. However, those pushing for the value under 100% were those who opposed slavery, who didn't want slave owners to get to vote based on their number of slaves.

What is surprising the fact that this Communist newspaper still finds enough money to be published. Did anyone checked their source of finance??? Saudis?? Iran?? Russia?? All of the above???
What a repulsive bunch of self-hating Jews.

this was just bad website management. the caption and photo were just copied from an early one, from an op-ed making that (stupid) point. apparently when they reused the photo for an article they forgot to change hte caption, til they noticed.
