'On July 25th ... owner of Saffron restaurant who happens to be Palestinian posted this world map from the early 1700, showing the state of Palestine. His caption was “We need more world maps that are correct, such as this one!” ...'
"The early 1700[s]"? Guffaw. Hardly.
One dead giveaway (apart from that perfect cartography and modern printing, duh!) is the presence of Jordan, like Palestine a province of the Ottoman Empire in 1700 and no more a "state" than were Lilliput or Brobdingnag. Jordan wasn't created until 1922. Then there's Iran (as reader Rob points out) and Iraq.
All that, however, hasn't deterred a Facebook group of the organisation Australians For Palestine from publicising the map and its accompanying plea:
'If you love Palestine please use this world map as a profile picture or at least post and share it with your friends …'What suckers! You really would think they'd know better.
But thus is demonisation of the Zionist Entity spawned and spread.
Which reminds me of The Three Little Birds, and their prettily warbled naive and nasty song, "Apartheid":
Says one of the Canadian trio, Angela Schleihauf:
"We do not use the term 'apartheid' lightly. According to the definition of apartheid under international law, the Russell Tribunal on Palestine, and the Human Sciences Research Council of South Africa Report, Israel is undoubtedly operating as an apartheid state."Ah, ignorance! Ah, gullibility! What lies against Israel are uttered (and sung) in your name.
