So this is a bit awkward for German Chancellor Angela Merkel. She was meeting with Israel’s Prime Minister yesterday when a photographer with The Jerusalem Post snapped this picture:

Benjamin Netanyahu certainly couldn’t have realized the ill-placed position of the shadow his finger was casting, which clearly conjures the image of a Hitler mustache. And what are the odds of a photographer standing in the right position to capture this unlucky moment?!

No doubt this photo is the topic of more conversations about Israel and Germany than the real reason the two leaders are meeting… whatever that is…
