A letter was sent to Reuters chief Tom Glocer on Monday expressing the
"grave concern of the government of Israel" over the cropping of
photographs taken from the Turkish
Mavi Marama ship last week by Minister of Public Diplomacy and
Diaspora Affairs MK Yuli Edelstein.
The photos, which were published on Sunday in the Turkish Hurriyet daily, showed images of the
commandos, their fatigues stained with blood, subdued by passengers
aboard the Mavi Marmara ship but excluded the knives held by passengers.
At the popular blog LittleGreenFootballs.com, which initially took note
of the missing knife, the blog's founder Charles Johnson posted the
story along with exhibits of both sets of pictures to the site.
