Reuters romanticizes Palestinian dumpster-diving

This is truly sickening

Read and spew:
Palestinian boy Ali covers his head with a keffiya as he searches through rubbish at a dump near the West Bank city of Hebron, hoping to find something valuable July 28, 2003. Palestinian children regularly sift through the garbage looking for clothes, metal and any other objects thrown out by the nearby Jewish settlement of Kiryat Arba that might be useful or could be sold. The Palestinian economy is in dire straits and poverty is rife, leaving many people desperate for any chance of making ends meet.

The problem with this is that the Pals and their supporters so adore this victimhood shtik. In the media war, there's just no concomitant interest in Jews/Israelis --who don't want to be rescued, but just to be left alone to rescue ourselves!
