44. I don't think anyone here thinks the president meant to be photographed that way.
I doubt, too, that anyone would dispute the existence of bigger problems for Israel. "It's just a picture," however, fails as an excuse for any offense given.

If the caption says, "President Obama speaks with Prime Minister Netanyahu," or if the caption read that the two "exchange frnk views," some fraction of readers will associate Obama's pose with an attitude. We are, after all, easily swayed by imagery.
