First use the children as shields then use their dead bodies as props

While I thought the pictures taken in Lebanon showing Hezbollah putting civilians in danger by firing rockets next to them were damning and disgusting; EU Referendum shows a series of photos that are simply inexcusable. I am not so cold-hearted as to not be grieved by seeing the photos of the child victims of the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict. The cowardly practices of Hezbollah fighting among civilians brings the blood of these children on their heads.

EU Referendum shows a series of photos from the same scene in Qana. The odd thing is that they show photos of a green helmeted "rescue worker" with two dead children in two different sets. Almost all photos are time stamped where there are gaps of hours between some photos of green helmet and the same dead child. The second sequence even shows a child being placed in an ambulance. Then according to the time stamps a photo is later taken of the rescue worker (without green helmet attire) holding the child outside the ambulance. Later according to the timestamps green helmet is back in his attire again holding the same dead child.

By the timestamps and the way the scenes are photographed, the whole thing is a staged operation with Mr. Green Helmet seeming to be the driving force orchestrating it. One commenter asks where the parents of these children are? Why are they allowing them to be paraded around for hours?

I ask why is the world allowing themselves to be played like fiddles by the tactics of Hezbollah and the follow up PR manipulation? Why is our media not showing this angle of the story? While the world body continues to be played like fiddles, Hezbollah is emboldened to continue their civilian endangerment and civilian targeting. It must stop before it comes to your neighborhood and mine.

    Now I am wondering if there were over 30 dead children, why did they only photograph 2 over and over again over a period of hours? Is the death count exaggerated?

    They were probably the only 2 whose parents were willing to allow their childrens' dead bodies to be paraded around (for a price?)
