Thank you to those who alerted us to the misrepresentation of the photo of an orphaned Syrian boy laying by his parents’ graves. I absolutely detest those who originally set these lies in motion since they are done not to expose human suffering under persecution, war, occupation, genocide but to discredit the claims of the oppressed. My friend who posted it was no part of that deception but merely expressing horror at what she thought the reality. I’ve deleted the photo so we are not a part of the lie. The oppressed have no need to invent atrocities. Those they endure are so unspeakable that most of us are unable to face them, even photographically.
