No Business Like Show Business

Better than Broadway, Bilin is home of the West Bank's longest continuous run of manufactured dissent and grandstanding for the cameras.

So it's no surprise that the Associated Press would have you believe that this man holding a key aloft directly in front of a photographer Bernat Armangue simply "passed out" from tear gas at a Nakba demonstration this week.


One memorable 2006 clash even featured audience participation -- Reuters photographer Imad Muhammad Intisar Boghnat was arrested after he was caught on film directing rioters to throw large chunks of rock at Israeli vehicles.

I would like to know how many people "faint" with their hands held high? Also that barb-wire fence seems out of focus. Was photoshop used?
