Mohamed Hadid Mints His Dumbass Credentials

As regular readers know, Israel-hating celebrity real estate developer Mohamed Hadid cannot help himself on social media. He loves to do duckface…as well as f*ckface, the latter being represented by his plethora of anti-Israel posts.

Unfortunately for Mohamed, they are invariably own goals – like the time he posted the infamous Australia vs Palestine soccer match video from 1939, and the time he posted the “map of Palestine” from the National Library of Israel website.

And Mohammed has done it again with this post:

Palestinians we were inclusive we included English and Hebrew even on our Palestinian coins Palestinian Jews were part of the fiber of our lives even if they were less than 1/8 of the population.. we had respect for the Arab Palestinian Jews .. treated them as equal … before my great grandfather leadership in the land of Gallalie there was only 5 to 7000 Arab jews in the area. My great grand father invited about 15000 jews from Izmir turky to come and live under his rule and build a temple for them in Tabaria

Props to Mohammed for recognizing the coins have Hebrew (and English) on them, something many other haters miss. However, this certainly does not show Palestinians were inclusive; the palestinian Arabs were not ruling the land at the time, but rather the British – hence the three languages.

Not only are these coins not proof that the palestinian Arabs were inclusive, but they are a reminder just how exclusive they were. As I have explained before, the Hebrew (פלשתינה – “Palestine” followed by א”י, the abbreviation for ארץ ישראל – Hebrew for ‘the land of Israel’) was added to the coin to conform to the Balfour Declaration, and the coins were officially introduced on November 1, 1927 – the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. The Arabs were furious about this, rioting in protest.

Needless to say, Mohamed also gets it wrong when he claims “we had respect for the Arab Palestinian Jews .. treated them as equal.” The Hebron massacre, which occurred just a few years after these coins were issued is perhaps the most infamous example showing he is full of it.
