Pro-'Palestinian' websites post fake photos to incite against Israel

This photograph has unfortunately become common on pro-'Palestinian' websites (see this, for example). It is being promoted as a picture of an IDF soldier trampling on a 'Palestinian' child.

There's one small problem - the photo is a fake.

The uniform is not an IDF uniform, the boots aren't IDF boots and the weapon is a Russian issue AK-47 - the IDF uses American-made M-16's.

But why let facts get in the way?

Could you show what the Israeli army wears and show the different rifles so we can see for ourselves?

Certainly, Classical Liberal. Here's an example of both.
Couldn't find a picture of the shoes or coat (the Israeli issue coat is thicker. Also, for some reason, IDF soldiers are only allowed to wear fingerless gloves while handling a rifle. I remember a long argument with my commander who would not allow me to use shooting gloves (where only the trigger finger is exposed).
