Årets bild i moraliskt moras

Årets Bild 2013 är ett foto från ett begravningståg i Gaza. DN är såklart glädjestrålande.

Årets bild 2013 av Paul Hansen, DN
Nyligen har jag bloggat om en bild i samma stil, som falskeligen tillskrivits en israelisk raket. Harvardprofessorn och Obamasupportern Alan Dershowitz skrev nyligen om den skandalen: Of course Hamas killed the baby
The important point is that it doesn't really matter who actually fired the rocket that killed the baby. The baby was killed by Hamas as part of a calculated strategy designed to point the emotional finger of moral blame at the IDF for doing what every democracy would do: namely, defend its civilians from rocket attacks by targeting those who are firing the rockets, even if they are firing them from civilian areas.
Men Dershowitz höjer blicken och tar även upp "korrekta" bilder som den av DN och Paul Hansen:
Babies like Omar Misharawi will continue to die in Gaza and in Israel so long as the world media continues to serve as facilitators of Hamas' dead baby strategy. 
Every time a picture of a dead Palestinian baby being held by his grieving parents appears on television or on the front pages of newspapers around the world, Hamas wins. And when Hamas wins, they continue with their deadly strategy. 
The media, therefore, is complicit in the death of Omar Misharawi as it is in the deaths of other civilians who are victims of Hamas' dead baby strategy. 
Alla de som hyllar Paul Hansens bild borde tänka ett extra varv - vad är det egentligen bilden skildrar? Bilder som Paul Hansens är en del i ett moraliskt tvivelaktigt spel.
