Disgusting: Turkey's 'photo of the year' a bleeding IDF soldier

What a despicable excuse for a country.

This photo (which is shown uncensored on Turkish web sites) of a beaten and bloodied IDF soldier aboard the Mavi Marmara won the 'photo of the year' in the news category in Turkey (Hat Tip: Joshua I).

Photojournalism award, Turkish-style: The picture of a bleeding IDF soldier aboard the Marmara won Turkey's 2010 Photo of the Year Award in the News category; the contest was held by the Turkish photojournalism association.

...

The photograph shows a beaten up IDF soldier with his face and head bloodied while three Marmara passengers grab him and twisting his arm. The picture was shot by a Turkish photographer who hid copies in a hidden pocket and managed to smuggle them out of Israel.

Turkish media outlets did not blur the blood stains or the Israeli soldier's face.

The winning pictures were chosen out of 1,632 photos in six different categories. Prizes were handed out in the beginning of the month with Turkey's parliament speaker, deputy prime minister and various parliamentarians among those in attendance.
What despicable excuses for human beings....

UPDATE 7:28 PM

The original picture (with the IDF soldier's face showing) is here.

Hi Carl.
perhaps they can choose a pic from the Armenian Genocide as "All time best" for Turkish humanitarian effort?

Big smile on the terrorist's face. I hope that soldier and all of Israel avenges this incident and that terrorist loses all cause to smile again.

Stuart, unfortunately Israel released all of the terrorists that were on those ships already.
