Palestinian Propaganda Most Petty

Sometimes I get the feeling many anti-Israel propaganda accounts are run by children.

This recent post by the Palestinian Information Center underscores (no pun intended) my point:

Now if I was as petty as these propagandists, I could point out that at least Israel has a team in the UEFA European Qualifiers. But I won’t.

Instead, I will point out that Switzerland is the 12th ranked team in the world, while Israel is the 76th, so losing them to them is no surprise. And in the only other game we have played so far, we drew against Kosovo, ranked 107. We are still to play Romania (52), Belarus (97), and Andorra (153), so there are still plenty of opportunities for Israel to rise up the table.

I will also point out how the Israeli squad includes Mahmoud Jaber (a Muslim-Arab whose older brother Abdallah is also a professional footballer who captained the ‘Palestine’ national team), Eyad Abu Abaid (Israeli-Arab), Bibras Natcho (Circassian-Israeli Muslim), and Mohammed Kna’an (Muslim-Arab). In other words, the Israeli team is the closes thing the palestinian Arabs have to a team in the Qualifiers.
