Mubarak Takes the Lead, Via Photoshop

From an Egyptian blogger, via the always readable The Arabist, some Photoshopping by Al-Ahram.

First, the original White House photo:

Natural enough. Obama leads the way in his White House, and since these are Israeli and Palesintinian peace talks, Netanyahu and ‘Abbas come next, and then Mubarak and King ‘Abdullah.

But that's not good enough for Al-Ahram. Egypt must lead, even if only via Photoshop:

Do they think nobody will notice, or do they just not really care if they do?

They won't notice because they are told not to notice.
