The Case of the Ubiquitous Rescue Worker

This guy keeps popping up in the grisly photos from Qana, as EU Referendum documents. WARNING: the photos are graphic and disturbing,

These martyr photos are being staged, to wave the bloody shirt. Martyrdom and suffering being Shi'a cultural themes, and picures of victims having poltical resonance, it's hardly surprising.

The whole story of Qana is not yet known. Some say Hizbullah staged the whole thing, putting disabled children in the building, and deliberately firing rockets from there to draw Israeli fire.

For the dead, the wounded, and their mourners, of course, who's to blame is secondary. War, my friends, is Hell.
