A photo of the Palestinian BBC journalist holding his 11-month-old son’s body was featured on the front page of the Washington Post - controversy ensued; the Egytian city of Tanta is on fire; and policeman smoking inside Beirut’s airport.
The Washington Post Explains to Angry Jewish Readers It’s Truthful to Show Palestinians Die
Some Jewish and American groups saw the photo of a Palestinian cameraman holding his dead son as “biased” and suggested photos of Israelis losing children should also be published. The Washington Post responded,
"The answer is that The Post cannot publish photographs that don’t exist. No Israeli civilian had been killed by Gaza rocket fire since Oct. 29, 2011"
As Damanhur is on fire especially after the murder of a 15 years old boy in the clashes between the MB members and the protesters , the city of Tanta is also on fire. The clashes have not stopped and people are extremely angry.
