At the Guardian, pictures can indeed lie

The Guardian, on Oct. 9, had this headline:

The headline was accompanied by this dramatic photo of an Israeli motorist running into a Palestinian child:

It looks pretty awful, right? An Israeli heartlessly running his vehicle into a young innocent boy?
Now watch the video (viaElder of Ziyon):


The boys were throwing rocks at the car and the boy, who was hit by the vehicle, was running towards the car even during the impact. The car honked the horn for him to get out of the way. Clearly the driver was worried about his safety and didn’t want to stop, and for good reason: We see his back windshield smashed by the rocks – context that the “world’s leading liberal voice” didn’t deem fit to note.

UPDATE: Still frame of the car’s window smashed by the rocks
