Belgium: Pallywood - the caged Palestinian children edition

Joël Rubinfeld, head of the Belgian League Against Antisemitism, observed recently that the Belgian francophone Socialist Party is no longer interested in fighting antisemitism, mainly for electoral reasons.  He is right.  One of the most committed Israel-bashers in Europe - if not the main instigator - is a prominent member of the socialist party Pierre Galand, also linked to the Free University of Brussels, the Humanist movement, secularism etc.  He was one of the movers and shakers at the Durban conference, he is behind the BDS campaign in Europe, he created the Russell Tribunal on Palestine, he heads the government-funded Association Belgo-Palestinienne Wallonia-Brussels, and much more.  This is what the association and Mr. Galand are constantly up to:

The photo has been strategically cropped, and the caption and stylized metal work have been removed to make it seem more "prison-like". Rather than being in a prison, these children are waiting to be fed.
The Los Angeles Times has the full story; Palestinian children wait to receive donated food at soup kitchen (The Week in Pictures, Aug. 16-22, 2010).
