Full-frontal ultraviolence shots from Lebanon


Whether you're for, against, or undecided, no coverage of a war should be taken seriously unless it includes images of horrible violence.

If anybody has a gallery of Israelis similarly mutilated by Hezbollah I'll be happy to link it. As I noted long ago (scroll down the page a bit), Arab media are more comfortable with depicting bloody mayhem—even in local, non-political, police-blotter-type news—than are western media, so in this battle of the bodies Israel is at a disadvantage. In the meantime, here are the coffins of four-year-old Mahmoud and eight-year-old Rabiah Talussi, two citizens of Israel (Muslims, ironically) killed in Nazareth by a Hezbollah rocket.
