If it's a victim it must be Palestinian

The AP reported that this was the picture of a Palestinian man in fear of the Israeli army. 
The picture was taken by Nasser Shiyoukhi, an Arab photographer working for AP.

Below we have the eventual correction.  As you can read in the caption, there was tiny mistake,  The person in fear is an Israeli.  For most news organizations, the initial reaction to seeing a victim in the Middle East, is to identify him as a Palestinian.
