Excellent post John, bringing together some crucial threads that provide some insight to help understand a little of whats unfolding here (visually).

I can't add much but it strikes me that its perhaps a good place to put this link about AP's validation process for User Generated Content:

Thanxs a lot for your interesting post John. What we observe in the pictures you show, is a struggle about the right narrative, the right interpretation of what is going on in Gaza and Israel. What is different in the age of web 2.0 is that the conflict parties themselves (IDF, Hamas, ...) with help of social media engage world wide in this struggle. Before the traditional media took the role of balancing out the narratives. @FKoltermann
