Palestinian Boy Gives Reporter the Finger

Though it's not quite what you may think.  Veteran Wash Post reporter upset by what he sees in visit to Gaza.  Includes this: 
It is all very intimate. We visited a house in Maghazi that had just been hit by an Israeli airstrike a few hours earlier. While I was interviewing the members of the Nawasrah family who survived, one of the cousins opened up a plastic bag and handed me a little finger.
I didn’t flip out, only because it was the second time that day someone had shown me something like this. After the rocket attacks, the Palestinians collect the dead from the debris, and sometimes the dead are no longer whole, and so they gather what they can for burial. Like a fingertip.
