Mideast: The Littlest Bomber

If the photo was indeed fabricated to bolster a propaganda move by the Israeli Army, as Palestinians charged, it was a sickening example of child exploitation. If dressing up the baby for a photo session of sorts was a "joke," as a member of the child's family reportedly told Sky News, then those responsible deserve the same words of condemnation. Any way one looks at it, the photo allegedly found by the Israeli Army in a house in Hebron last week, which it claims is a genuine image of a Palestinian toddler staring wide-eyed into the camera while dressed in the garb of a suicide bomber (complete with red wires, an explosives belt strapped to his waist and a red Hamas-style bandanna on his forehead) was another shocking sign of how dismal the Mideast situation has become.
