This is the picture for which Israeli Oded Balilty, who works for the Associated Press, was awarded this year's Pullitzer Prize for breaking news photography. It is a sad but beautiful picture, indeed. Kol HaKavod and congratulations to Mr Balilty. If only this region provided photographers with less photo-ops of Jews fighting Jews, of Palestinians fighting Jews, of Palestinians fighting Palestinians, of Jews fighting Palestinians, of the horrific consequences of occupation, terror, counter-terror etc. If only a picture filled simply with happy Palestinian or Israeli children would one day be newsworthy enough for a Palestinian or Israeli photographer to win a Pullitzer prize with.
