Another pic of Beirut's unluckiest property owner?

Natalie at Biased BBC and Marc at USS Neverdock have picked up on a suggestion in the comments here that this might be another image of Beirut's unluckiest property owner:

I did look at the picture yesterday but as I couldn't be sure I stuck it in the gallery of upturned hands instead. It may just be the photo, but the woman in the third image doesn't appear to have the same flaw in her upper right teeth.

However, I could be wrong.

I think it is the same woman..look at the nose, same shape.
This time they took the time out to change her clothes or it's a different day. Same shit though.

I hope you're wrong, because if you're right, you've solved the mystery of why Moslem men are willing to blow themselves to smithereens for a chance at seventy-two virgins: All Islamic females look like that. *shudder*

Actually, comparing the first close-up with the third, they do look incredibly similar.

On reflection I think it probably is the same woman.

The "flaw" in her teeth is just a shadow due to the angle of the photograph. The facial scars give her away. So who was the photographer, as if I have to ask?

you are sick to make such comments

I did not hate any body and am not a moslem or a jew, but you have lost my respect (the jedafasict)

How was that... "the jedafasict" ?
That would be a word made up for Star Wars (the movie), right ?
Or maybe not... the Jedafa sect ? Smells a bit like coffee to me ?
At least Ano hates nobody, and that is novel; on the other hand, s/he is not a Muslim nor a Jew, which could leave a busload of possibilities, but, do we care ? As long as Ano is happy, that aspect is none of our concern ?
Anyone care about losing the respect of a member of the Jedafa (or any other) sect, who is not a Muslim or a Jew ?

I spotted one on BBC TV news, I knew immediately that she was a "Wailer". In middle eastern culture, Wailers are professional female mourners who are paid to lament the dead, often in a highly dramatic fashion, sometimes scratching the cheeks until they bleed and puling out clumps of hair. In one picture, it was noticed that a women had scars on her cheeks.

Hi, all.
Please, look at her left hand
on second photo on page
Looks like her first finger has no one phalange or half of phalange.
On photo on this page first finger on left hand also seems shorter then it shoud be.

the eyebrows are identical - the curve meets at the same location in all 3 photos. Plus the tilt of the head and hand gestures are a singular expression, and don't look like there is any real movement - a person under genuine distress would be flailing their arms, there would likely be at least a little blur on the arms.

Might I ask why it matter so much? It shouldn't be surprising that people try to manipulate the message. But when houses are destroyed, one can safely assume that someone's life is ruined. Is it so terribly relevant whether you have a picture of that person? Are you not losing sight of the big picture??

Check out the Daily Telegraph London August 9, 2006 page 12 of 'Ablo Amro' she too looks remarkably like the woman in the photo here. Maybe they are all close relatives?

Another similar issue is found on today's (Aug 9) SFGate website in an Iraq article. Check out these two photos:

These women look the same to me.

I have seen so many photos of this woman now, that I think I am falling in love with her.
It was the mention of her in a wedding dress that did it. My minds eye view of the sight inspired instant passion. (If ya know what I mean)....
I cant wait to see her wailing outside another lost property! She is absolutely Gorgeous. I must meet her, and Im going to stop drinking and use the money to buy a flight to Lebanon. The Land of Love, under the Religon of Peace.
Wait for me Honey, Im coming!

It matters because it's no longer fair impartial news, but visual propaganda. The BBC is anything but impartial though, despite it's many claims to be.

"This time they took the time out to change her clothes or it's a different day."

Good thing you took the time to look at the teeth (most bloogs on the matter stick to identify people based on the color of one pixel below the left eye). Had you also looked closer at the clothes in the two pictures actually showing the same woman you would have noticed that they probably werent shot at the same occasion either. Not that it matters much. This Hajj character obviously didn't take truth too seriously, but neither do you trying to write off all victims of Israeli aggression as posers.

I don't know what you'd do if sameone bombed your house, but I'd sure get upset and whine about it. A lot. As would I if they flattened the rest of the neighbourhood. Probably I'd voice my anger (or greif) to anyone listening, even the press. And probably it'd take me more than a day to get over it. And probably some arrogant *ssh*le sympathizing with the people bombing me would post pictures of me on a website calling me a fake doing some acting.
