The photo of the German leader with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was taken by photographer Marc Israel Sellem of the Jerusalem Post. It was initially uploaded to his personal Facebook page before being deleted.

But you won't see it on the newspaper's own website, according to reporter Lahav Harkov:

@cymruisrael It's a real picture, not photoshopped. Obviously this wasn't Netanyahu's intention.

Just want to clarify that none of the higher-ups at JPost are pushing that picture. It's not on our site and won't be in the newspaper.

Unfortunately it's a bit late for that.
