The Israelis can't even get propaganda right anymore
My friend Ibn Kafka has a wonderful post catching Israel in a propaganda f**k-up. The Israeli Ministry Foreign Affairs posted on its Flickr account pictures of the terrifying weapons they found on the IHH ship. You know, things like bulletproof vests for emergency services, pepper spray, kitchen knives, bits of wood and other weapons of mass destruction. Except that they did not realize that Flickr displays EXIF data, which is the information that cameras record when they take pictures: aperture, shutter speed, flash status... and the time the picture was taken.
Which, as Flickr commenters quickly pointed out, was sometime in 2006.
So the Israeli MFA quickly changed the EXIF date, but not before I was able to take snapshots of before and after:
I don't know what's most ridiculous: calling these objects weapons or messing up your propaganda.
