Palestinian Fauxtography of the Day

A palestinian Arab propaganda Facebook page called Palestine Pictures has posted this reel (hat tip: Michal):

The clue should be the Greek on the poster, a language not used in Gaza now or back then.

The Greek words on the poster are “ΑΜΟΙΒΉ £10000” which means “Reward £10000”.

It seems likely the photo is from Cyprus during the Cyprus Emergency (the Cypriot War of Independence), fought in British Cyprus between November 1955 and March 1959. During this period, the British placed bounties on the heads of wanted men from EOKA, a Greek Cypriot nationalist guerilla organization that fought a campaign for the end of British rule in Cyprus.

In other words, palestinian Arab propagandists, for about the millionth time, have been busted trying to pass of a photo from somewhere else in the world, as one of their own. Why lie over something this trivial? Who knows, but lying has become so second nature to them, I guess they think “Why not?”
