Photoshop jihad FAIL

This is from the web site of Al-Manar, a Hezbollah-affiliated Lebanese TV station.

Purely on the basis of the graphic, I'm guessing that these guys aren't drawing on an extensive pool of talent. Most parish newsletters in the UK can muster somebody with better Photoshop skills than this.

I love the way they illustrate 'anti-aircraft guns' with a stock picture of some rockets (what the heck, nobody'll notice) and one downed F4 with an image of two F16s with their landing gear down, amateurishly cut'n pasted onto a background snap of some houses on a hillside (to dramatise the story of a jet shot down over the sea), all slapped together with the finesse you'd expect from a primary school child's first attempt to make a birthday card on the school computer.

If this illustrates the general level of competence among Hezbollah's followers, it would explain why so many of them see blowing themselves up as a viable career option.
