Less than a week after Palestinian youth group initiated a campaign to write “Freedom for Palestine” on the Israeli currency in Arabic and English, the Palestinian banks decided to stop honoring bank notes with these statements written on them.

The Palestinian bank association issued a statement that although it “appreciates the good intentions of those in charge of this initiative, it called upon the citizens to understand the negative impact of this practice on the Palestinian national economy.”

The participants in this campaign wanted to deliver a message to the Israelis that freedom is the most important requirement of the Palestinian people.

Very Creative!
