Palestinian Propagandist Deletes Fauxtography After Getting Caught; Replaces It With More Fauxtography

Yesterday I exposed some palestinian fauxtography from a tweeter called Marian Ghnem. Following my post, they deleted the tweet in question – which showed a child from Pakistan, not Gaza

and replaced it with a new tweet

Yup, you guessed it.

Consider for a second what happened: A palestinian propagandist deliberately tweets out a photo from Pakistan, trying to pass it off as a photo from Gaza. Gets caught. Deletes the offending tweet. Proceeds to search for a new misleading photo (this time from Afghanistan) and tweets that out.

This is really like a game of whack-a-mole.

Luckily I can whack moles in my sleep.
