Green Helmet?

Has "Green Helmet" got a new outfit? These pictures from Getty Images were taken in Mashghara, which is many miles away from his last confirmed sighting in Tyre. It might be someone who just looks like him, but I'll put it out there anyway.

Update. Ok - probably not him. I should've just checked on his blog.

I don't think so. The nose seems longer for one thing, though of course I could be wrong.

It worries me - if those of us who are aware of Pallywood and Hezbollywood go making public speculations about each and every photo we see (and I've seen several excited but evidently erroneous accusations of fakery or staging in the past couple of days) then we risk discrediting the valid idea things we have to say. We should be very careful in this area, because although there is obviously a massive media propaganda effort going on, and although it is obvious that many western agencies are happy to play along, we risk letting them off the hook if we take a scattergun approach.

I agree, which is why I qualified my post by saying it might be someone who looks similar.

I've been emailed many examples of purported fakery over the past few days but haven't put them on my blog because there's too much doubt in my mind.

I stuck these ones up because they looked pretty close to me and I hoped someone could give definitive proof either way.

Nope, not him.

Apparently (or at least since the 6th) he's been in Beirut.

If, of course, you believe the caption.

No. Green Helmet Man specialises in dashing across rubble in derelict sites and ex-homes of multiple property-owner. He doesn't do normal streets and buildings. He only does devastation. Also, the person on the stretcher appears to be alive. Green Helmet Man only ferries dead children around.

There must be some face recognition software available.

Did you take a look at the screensnap of the red cross worker shown on the balancethemedia blog entitled "Green Helmet Doctors another scene" where he is shown dressed as a red cross worker?
