Doctored photo of Lebanese woman?

I've found another oddity among the photos coming out of Lebanon. Remember the photos of the wailing Lebanese woman? Some have questioned whether these photos -- and the captions accompanying them -- are legit. (For details, see Riehl World View, Drinking from Home, and The Jawa Report.)

Here's one well known photo of her.

Well, I've found the original of this photo, I think.

Ha, ha! Only kidding. Here's the original of the photo.

Here are links to two previous doctored photos I've found.

Possibly related: LGF has a photo from a guy who's even worse with Photoshop than I am.

UPDATE: Allah thinks the photo at LGF isn't photoshopped: "I really hope I’m wrong with this latest debunking, though. Because now that it’s been on Drudge, if it turns out it’s not a photoshop, we’re going to look like the biggest bunch of cranks this side of a Loose Change convention."
