Have you seen Angela Merkel?

The Announcer (HaMevaser), a small orthodox newspaper in Israel, has removed all female world leaders from a photo at the rally against terrorism last weekend in Paris.

Missing from the image is Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel, Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo, Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorington-Schmidt and European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

Here is the original photo:



"Including a picture of a woman into something so sacred, as far as we are concerned, it can desecrate the memory of the martyrs and not the other way around," said editor Binyamin Lipkin.

In the ultra-orthodox community showing women in photos is typically a big no-no, due to modesty concerns, and Lipkin said he was worried about what children might think.

Altering a news photo at a march focused around issues of censorship and free speech is bad enough as is, but the paper's photoshop skills aren't that great either.

Here's a closeup shot of a stray black glove, with no body attached.

Meet Julie Bishop, Minister for Foreign Affairs and human emoji.

During an interview with Bishop on the Today show in Australia this week, host Karl Stefanovic brought up news that Governor-General Peter Cosgrove’s staff wanted a $2000 Thermomix for their kitchen.

He then asked Bishop if she knew what a Thermomix was. (It’s an expensive device that both heats and mixes food at the same time.)

“I’m going to answer in emoji,” she said, going on to make a weird face.

Well played. But which emoji was she impersonating?
