I’ve been watching this one since it popped up in the mainstream a few days back… and have had an awful-gut-sick-foul feeling going on for the entire time… kinda been unable to find a point from which to simply sit and look at it and think.

So either way you can go looking if you want and have a read of all the reactions. Mor Ostrovski of the Israeli Defence Force thought it would be (somehow) a good idea to take this picture and send it through on Instagram for the world to see… so ignoring all the very real concerns for the child’s welfare… the dehumanising visuals… the computer game-esque treatment of the experience… the decades old conflict and violent political rhetoric… let’s just dwell on the few seconds where Ostrovski lined it all up for his photo (and then posted it).
