An injured Palestinian construction worker screams in pain after an  Israeli army driver drove a trailer hooked to a tractor over his legs,  as he tried to block him when Israeli forces stopped workers on January  25, 2012 from building a house in al-Dirat village, south of Yatta in  the southern Bank town Hebron region.  (Photo: Hazem Bader / AFP via MSNBC.com)

Incredibly, the Israeli Embassy in Washington mounted a campaign, shortly after this photo was first published, trying to get newspapers and other news outlets to stop running the photo, implying the picture was somehow staged.  However, Agence France Presse, the wire service that disseminated the photo, confirmed the Palestinian worker’s account with other media at the scene — including a medical certificate detailing his injuries.
