A thank you to ombusman Patrick Pexton for strongly defending The Post’s publication of the photo showing a Palestinian man’s anguish over the needless death of his 11-month -old son. Yes the rockets are provocative, but even more so is the retaliatory killing of the Gaza population by the Israeli military. The pain and anguish must be shown, not hidden.
