What is it with Palestinians and toys?

I was so taken by this photo in the SMH that I took a photo of it (I was in a cafe at the time, and the paper is from last weekend). The caption reads, "Khalid Abed Rabbo sitting in his family's ruined home, clutching his children's toys".

I searched for this photo online, and could only find this one in The Age:

It's been cropped, and the caption is different - but it's the same photo.

I think we have seen this sort of heart-string tugging propaganda before....

Although the house is rubble, the toys look like they are spotlessly clean. Hmm....

Ah yes, Palestinians and toys.

Stage management by the Palestinians has been well documented.
