Israel getting railed from so many directions

On the left, the uncropped photo. On the right, Reuters' released photo. (Reuters)

I just read the article on Fox News that says the above photos were brought to light by a blogger. Whether you think bloggers are liars or not, they do a lot of good in my book and if they are liars it is up to you to verify their stories and stop reading if they are not truthful.
I feel bad for Israel. They can not catch a break and even with all the overwhelming evidence out there that the commandos defended themselves, people are still saying this is Israels fault. Reuters is now being accused of cropping one photo to remove a knife from a Peace Activists hands and another photo is said to have been photo shopped to remove blood stains from the ship. The second photo has not been released.
Video, pictures, and audio have demonstrated that this ship was hell bent on a confrontation. The organizers who got these idiots to get on board have to all be shaking each others hands for a job well done. Israel is in the worlds cross hairs for protecting itself.
Side Note: I just had a thought that Israel correlates with law abiding citizens in Chicago.
Damned if you do; damned if you don't.
I love the Internet because it makes it a lot harder to keep the truth hidden. Unfortunately, it can also be used to promote untruths. It is upon all of us who use the Internet to make sure we only pass on truthful information and if there is any doubt about accuracy don't pass it on.
I just went off on another tangent and sorry for that.
Israel, the Arizona Shooters have your back. Keep up the good fight and don't let the dirt bags dissuade you from defending yourself.
I have a question for anyone reading this. Why is Israel and Palestine a divisive issue in the US? Correct me if I am wrong but it seems the dems and more specifically the far left of the dems are pro Palestine.
