Blood Test

Here's a series of AP photos taken from Yahoo news showing Palestinians turning the wreckage of a car the right way up after Israelis had killed its four terrorist occupants with a missile strike (via LGF).

The caption on the following photo is: A Palestinian has blood on his hands as they gather around the wreckage of a car that was hit in an Israeli missile strike in Gaza City Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2005. Four Palestinians were killed and four wounded Wednesday after their car was ripped apart in an Israeli air strike near the Gaza Strip's main cargo passage, Palestinian hospital officials and witnesses said. The Israeli military said it targeted militants from the Popular Resistance Committees. ("Whatever happened to the Popular Resistance Committees, Reg?" "He's over there.")

We’re obviously supposed to think that the hand is covered in the blood of dead martyrs, but it seems pretty clear to me that the man has merely cut himself :

In fact, that left hand looks a bit like the one in the second picture, and the smear of blood on the car might just indicate where the guy gashed himself.

Of course, "Idiot Palestinian shows results of pulling on jagged metal" doesn't have quite the same impact.
