"The knives that we didn't carry were this big"

That's the caption we'd choose for this photo of Israeli legislator Hanin Zoabi appearing on Reuters AlertNet website:

Zoabi, as you may recall, insisted in testimony following the Turkish flotilla incident that passengers aboard the Mavi Marmara carried no weapons.  This, despite the fact that video evidence captured her in the same location on deck as IHH jihadis holding clubs and metal rods.

Reuters however, chooses this interesting caption:
Zoabi, a Palestinian member of the Israeli Knesset (the Israeli parliament), talks to reporters in Amman
That's a bit like saying a Canadian member of the US Congress.  Or are the Palestinians now an ethnic group separate and distinct from the Arabs?  That would be news.
