Anti-Israel Propaganda “Own Goal” of the Day

The expression “own goal” seems especially appropriate here, given this propaganda fail occurred at a football game.

For a start, the guy is holding the palestinian flag the wrong way (the red triangle should be on the left). We can see this is so, and not a case of the camera producing a mirror image, because the advertisements in the background appear correctly.

But more hilarious is how no-one really pays attention to this one solitary guy (and not “fans” like the video title claims). True, a few people look at him, but he does not seem to receive any support for his stunt and is even perhaps cursed by some (at around 0:58 when the sound is censored).

All in all, much ado about nothing. Yet the anti-Israel crowd are sharing this video as if it wasn’t the fail that it was.
