Palestinian Org Al-Haq Makes the Propaganda Cut

Palestinian non-governmental human rights organization Al-Haq has tweeted out their Eid Al Adha greetings, with a photo of an old British Mandate of Palestine-era coin – or at least part of it.

In case you are wondering why they did not include a photo of the entire coin, the answer is rather simple: including the other part of the coin would be admitting to a very inconvenient fact.

The section of the coin they omitted contains the Hebrew word פלשתינה – Hebrew for “Palestine” – followed by (א”י). As I have explained before

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.

The Arab response to this abbreviation on the coin was predictably…rage.

Once again, history proves to be inconvenient for palestinian Arabs – so they simply lie and deceive.
