EU Referendum has been feeling for the truth about the Qana photos all week. It is all coming together now, and it damns the complacent media.

let's see how "complacent" you are when it's your children being dug out of the rubble.....

When? Sounds like a threat...
I suggest you follow the link and look at the evidence yourself rather than having your opinions spoon fed to you by the BBC or Sky.

Fog of War, plus biased media, means that we'll probably never know what happened, in the sense of how many died, what they were still doing there hours after the missile strike, etc. But the case that what we were presented with was all elaborately staged and edited is overwhelmingly likely to be true, even without North's fine effort. Hell, the photo of the US Marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima was bogus; so was the photo of Russian troops doing the same at the Reichstag. And Matthew Paris has written forcibly that television "always lies". On such matters, to be unsceptical is to be a fool.

I'd hazard a guess that were a terrorist to set up a launch site in The Englishman's garden and use his kids as cover against retaliatory strikes, said terrorist would be on the receiving end of either a few rounds from a rifle, or at the very least the bale spike of a front-end loader.

Shuffle the pictures, choose your narrative. Totally unconvincing. And something rather offensive about someone sitting at a computer deciding whether or not someone carrying a dead child from the rubble is 'emoting' correctly.

The BBC already has the script for the Iraq war and the Israeli Hezbollah war. They don't require "doctored" pictures. They simply slant the news to achieve their (the terrorists)objectives.
The real scary part is that they are funded by the British taxpayer. When are you blokes going to learn that they may not have your interests in mind? You won't find children of BBC personnel in the military (if they were, the tone would change).
If this sounds like the BBC is your enemy, well if it sounds like a duck, quacks like a duck-.

The BBC isn't funded by the taxpayer, at least not in the sense of being directly funded out of your income tax or any of the state's stealth taxes. It's funded by the license fee, which you have to pay if you want to own a telly, it is in effect a television tax however collection of the fee does not go through to state prior to reaching the beeb, the collection is handled by the private sector.
In "theory" the BBC is answerable only to it's license payers, in practise it appears to answer too itself.
Hopefully once all telly is digitised, we can have I don't know some kind of BBC Box we can buy and plug into the giant HD plasma/lcd flatscreens we are destined to own.
Still they had a good panorama on the other week about a British charity who found the activities of Hamas, including some very scary schools. Very informative and it made Kenneth of London look like a right tit, meeting and greeting some Muslim Brotherhood Demagogue, whose day job is sitting on his fat arse and calling for the annihilation of the joooos on Arabic television.

The Iwo Jima photograph by Joe Rosenthal was not faked. Read James Bradley's "Flags of Our Fathers" for the good oil.
Even at the time, it was conceded that this photograph depicted the second flag raising on Mt. Suribachi (one photograph even depicts the smaller flag being lowered as the larger one is raised).
Three of the six men seen in the photograph (five Marines and a US Navy medical corpsman) were later killed in the battle for Iwo Jima.
Color motion picture footage of this flag raising exists -- taken by a cameraman who was also killed during the battle.

Nothing offensive at all about using a dead child's body for propaganda reasons, though...?
