Reuters myopia

Next to a photo of the self-proclaimed Elders meeting with Hamas in Syria, Reuters captions:
Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal (2nd R) meets members of The Elders delegation Lakhdar Brahimi, Ela Bhatt, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former Irish President Mary Robinson (L-3rd R) in Damascus October 19, 2010. The Elders are on a tour of the Middle East to build support for a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
Directly behind Jimmy Carter's head in the photo, you'll note a map of the Gaza Strip, Judea and Samaria (the "West Bank"), and Israel painted in Palestinian colors.

Reuters however, is a bit too myopic to see the irony between the map and their caption.
