You Just Got To Love 'Em

I asked a question earlier: where'd those Gazan Pals. get all the money they've been using to purchase goods in Egypt?

Here's the answer:-

Gaza Arabs Shopped in Egypt with Fake Money

(IsraelNN.com) Arabs in Gaza used fake Israeli money to pay for supplies they bought in Egypt after the fall of the barrier at the Rafiah border, according to the Hebrew newspaper Maariv. On the other hand, many Egyptian stores sold food that was beyond the expiration date.

Fake shekel notes of 100 and 200 shekels were printed and sold to children during the expulsion in the summer of 2005, explained one Gaza resident. After two days of being given fake money, the Egyptian shopkeepers realized the scam and began checking the currency.
