Many, if not most, photos posted on social media do not designate the photographer’s name nor even the date or place of the photo. As something of a stickler about such details, I spend a fair amount of time vetting photos on image search engines. It turns out that umpteen other sources do not vet either so the origins of the photo sometimes remain unclear. My primary concern is the time & place of photos.

A few have pointed out that the image of little kids in Gaza peeking through a bullet-riddled wall reflecting the shadow of an Israeli soldier is likely an artistic photoshop work, not a photograph. It’s regrettable that information & the artist who photoshopped the image were not identified. But once you point that out, which as a stickler I appreciate, please don’t belabor the point at the expense of overshadowing the devastating statistics of Palestinian deaths at the hands of Israeli troops.
