Subaru ad a fake?

Recall this incident in October 2010 in which a Jewish resident of Jerusalem's Silwan neighborhood was ambushed by stone-throwing 'Palestinians' and photographers who had been tipped off about what was going to take place.

The 'Palestinian Authority' recently claimed that the ad above was made from a picture of the incident and asked that it be removed. There's just one problem: No one knows who made the ad. Could it be the 'Palestinians' themselves?
A Subaru logo sits in the bottom right-hand corner of the ad, accompanied by the sentence, “Let’s see who will stand in your way.”

A spokeswoman for Japan Auto said on Thursday that the company had nothing to do with the advertisement, saying, “We strongly condemn these elements that are trying to harm the good name of the company.”

She added that the company did not plan to take any action over the advertisement, as it has no idea where it originated from.

The advertisement, which does not appear to have been published in any mainstream media outlets, was sent to media this week by the PA Government Media Center, which called on Subaru to “take all necessary steps to stop the circulation of this despicable and disgraceful ad and condemn it.”

However, the PA, although not revealing where it had obtained the advertisement, also acknowledged that it is not clear whether the ad is genuine or whether someone not connected to the company has made use of the Subaru logo without its approval.
I'll bet the PA produced the ad itself.

What idiots. Of course it's a fake. To effectively respond Palestinian juvenile delinquents you'd use a Humvee.
