As lame and disingenuous as this is, it is not the first time I have seen this excuse; last month when I exposed this instance of palestinian fauxtography

These haters know exactly what they are doing and have every intention of misleading their audiences. And they will continue to do so, with this excuse in their back pocket for when/if they get caught.
They fight dirty, after all.
