Palestinian Propaganda “Own Goal” of the Day

Positive Palestine is a Facebook page that claims to show “The Bright Side of Palestine” and
“All the Positive news about Palestine.”

How antisemitic posts and those showing antisemites and terror supporters accomplishes this, don’t ask me.

This morning I noticed them publish this post promoting some accessories and jewelry

Recognize those coins?

Here’s a huge clue:

As I have explained in the past:

The Hebrew on the coin is פלשתינה – Hebrew for “Palestine” – followed by (א”י).

What is this א”י?

It is none other than the abbreviation for ארץ ישראל – Hebrew for the land of Israel!

This was added to the coin to conform to the Balfour Declaration. In fact, the coins were officially introduced on November 1, 1927 – the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration.

And what was the Arab response to this abbreviation on the coin?

This infuriated the Arab citizens who rioted in protest.

It is quite amazing how many palestinian propagandists just don’t understand their own history.
