Palestine Poster Propaganda A Reminder of Fraudulent Nature of Palestinian Cause

The Times of Israel reports on a current propaganda effort by the haters.

A little over two-thousand years ago, while traveling from Bethlehem to Jerusalem, Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus were stopped by a giant cement wall.

It’s not exactly how the New Testament story is told, but in a recently printed version of the iconic “Visit Palestine” poster, that’s how the scene is portrayed.

The posters, widely available in erusalem’s Old City market, constitute unsubtle criticism of Israel’s security barrier, which Palestinians say is an unjust impediment to their freedom of movement.

The poster also taps into the recent trend in Palestinian nationalism, in which Jesus of Nazareth is regarded as a Palestinian. The poster suggests that even Jesus couldn’t have made it into modern day Jerusalem from Bethlehem.

There is so much about this that is symbolic of the palestinian cause – namely shooting themselves in the foot.

For a start, they are using a Jewish agency poster, showing Jewish presence in ‘Palestine’ pre-1948.

As the report mentions, this is “Visit Palestine” poster first designed in 1936 to promote Jewish tourism to the Holy Land prior to the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. It is a favorite of Israel haters and antisemites, who are apparently unaware of the poster’s origin, or banking on their followers not being familiar with Google.

But more than that, they are using a Jew – perhaps the world’s most famous Jew – to try and make their point.

There is really no question Jesus was Jewish. Again, they are shooting themselves in the foot by reminding everyone of the Jewish presence in the land going back at least 2,000 years (including the existence of the Second Jewish Temple that was standing during Jesus’ time, which they like to deny ever existed).

Of course, they claim he was ‘Palestinian’, but this goes against history – a typical tactic of the palestinians and their supporters, who need to fabricate history to bring any legitimacy to their cause.

As for the idea of a cement wall during Jesus’ time, of course walls were built back then to protect inhabitants from foreign invaders. Yet there was no such wall. Why is that? Perhaps because the palestinians did not exist back then (after all, the Muslim conquest of the Holy Land would happen only about 600 years later). Come to think of it, neither did bomb belts, so there’s that.

Another point: this poster is being sold in Jerusalem’s Old City, which goes to show freedom of expression that exists in Israel. Do you think a comparable poster – criticizing Hamas or even the PA – would be sold in Gaza/PA territories without severe repercussions?

This kind of propaganda can only appeal to those who do not think. The problem is, this category includes too many people.

  1. Ah, more Arab fakery. Point out and explain the original poster out to any Pali-loving antisemite and they’ll say it’s “Zionists appropriating Palestinian culture,” despite its abundantly clear and easily researchable history of Jews in Israel.

    1. Everything is the Joos’ fault.

      Life wouldn’t be as interesting if no fault could be attributed to them!

      There are lots of reasons to thank G-d for having chosen the Jews as His people but the jealousy of them among mankind is surely chief among them.

  2. I’m not offended.

    I’m flattered in fact the enemies of the Jewish people have to appropriate their history to build a case against them.

    Because without the Jews, they wouldn’t exist, period!

  3. Islam believes jews were in Palestine before.
    The Quran says jews were in Plaestine before.
    The Prophetic tradition show jews were in Palestine before.

    But that does not mean you kick out those living there for 1000 years just because jews were in Palestine before…

    1. Remind me: What did the Muslims of Iraq, Egypt, Syria, etc., do in ’48 to the Jews who were in those countries long before Islam was even thought of, and the Arabs arrived to conquer them in fire and blood?

    2. Not many Arabs were living there for 1000 years. To begin with, the human lifespan very seldom exceeds 100 years. The Arab population of what later became British Mandatory Palestine was very small–about the same as its Jewish population–when the First Aliyah began.

      Then, as incoming Jews brought (human, social, financial) capital, Arabs began to come in as well, for the jobs. So much for demography.

      If you can actually isolate the few Arab families who have roots west of the Jordan and south of the Golan earlier than (say) 1880, and document them (no fraud, please), then maybe something could be arranged for the tiny few lineal descendants. And, of course, some Arabs are quite happy as citizens of Israel, which citizenship is open to all (albeit you have actually to give allegiance, in principle). All the rest can do what the Jews in Arab lands have to do.

  4. When I was in the Old City in September 2015 I saw that same poster as “Welcome to Palestine”. I thought it was pretty lame.
