No Comment: Great Leader

Mubarak leads the way!

(Before)

(After)

I was initially planning to have the following two images without any commentary but then I realized that some people may not have heard about it. The story is funny, sad and shameful simultaneously. Just in case you have not heard about it before, what happened was that the Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram ran a photo of President Obama, King Abdullah, Mehmud Abbas, Netanyahu and Mubrak. The photo was however photoshopped to make Mubarak seem as if he is walking in front of everyone including Obama. Thanks to the internet however the word got out that the picture was doctored. He is what the editor of Al-Ahram had to say afterwards ” expressionist photo is . . . a brief, live and true expression of Mubarak’s unique role in leading on the Palestinian issue. “
