ARGENTINA – Border Officers draw penis in israeli’s passport

israel palestine argentina

Ed-note (Sabba) – Not sure at all whether this true or if it is a ‘rabbi whatcha doin’ scenario. My Spanish is very rusty but I believe Palestine is ‘Palestina’ in the language of Cervantes, not Palestinia. Unless Spanish speaking Latin Americans spell some words differently from Castillan Spanish, as is sometimes the case with English English and American English?


Seasoned travellers are used to stacking up a passport full of stamps as they tour the globe.

But Israeli backpacker Itay Blumental received a more unique marking as he arrived in Argentina.

After crossing the border from Peru and handing his passport over to customs, it came back to him with a penis doodled inside, under which an immigration official had written “Viva Palestina”, meaning “Long live Palestine.”

    There is no answer to that.

    Could just be a typo.

    I am of the House of Israel an Israelite ! Please do not call these people Israelis . Call them Jews or whatever you want but they are not of the House Israel !! Search “who in the world is the House of Israel.” I say such things because the Holy Ghost , the Eternal Spirit , God the Father of glory did manifest before me as did the Word …… because of this I’m not singing Jesus loves me anymore .

    Sounds like a “Rabbi whatcha doin” scenario to me; as Peru does not border Argentina.

    “Palestina” is Spanish for Palestine. A native Spanish-speaker would never say, “Palestinia.” However, due to “inter-language interference,” someone who speaks English, but trying to speak or sound like he speaks Spanish, would more than likely say, “Palestinia” because it’s a mushing together of “Palestinian” and “Palestina.” (I’ve experienced this problem myself, firsthand, while speaking both Spanish and Portuguese.) Now, the Spanish-speaker could have messed up because he was trying to say, in English, Palestinian, and mixed it with Palestine,” I’m not sure if I’m explaining myself correctly. I’m thinking 60/40, it was a the Jew, not the civil servant. The orthography, though, does look Argentine (to me; yes, this may sound, weird, but I do notice things l like that). But, really, who knows? There are a lot of Jews in Argentina with dual citizenship. Walking around in barrio norte, you’ll run into hassdim just like in NY, dressed like vampires in their wide-brimmed hats, with their beards and side curls. No native Spanish-speaker, in my opinion, is going to say, “VIva Palestinia.” Would you, as an American, say, “LONG LIVE BRITAINIA!” or “LONG LIVE AMERCANIA!” by even accident? It’s just not a mistake a native would make (in my opinion). Sorry for the bloated comment.

    Here’s something I noticed about the picture: Count the numbers of hairs on the scrotum. How many are there? 6. And: look at their placement. Like the so-called “Star of David.” I think the “six hairs” are a dead giveaway that it was Jew who drew it.

    Hey, rabbi, whatcha doin’? Nothing more, nothing less.

    The “typo” looks quite fishy to me as the education level of Argentinians is relatively high. As a native speaker of Castilian, it’s very hard for me to believe that an Argentinian customs officer would misspell Palestina as Palestinia. It just doesn’t make sense.

    Palestine is written “Palestina” in all Spanish speaking countries. Jews in South America have a very long history of faking “Anti-Semitism”, attacking their own cemeteries, making false allegations to the authorities and press, distributing anti-Jewish fliers or painting swastika everywhere. Many times the police have caught Jews red handed doing all this things.

    i think it is just a jew who made a doodle in his passport and cried “antisemitism.” It should say Palestina, not Palestinia

    This is a cruel lie. Argentina does not even have borders with Peru. This dirty campaign should stop.

    The drawing prospective doesn’t match the pages prospective. Such straight vertical lines not usually happens. No pen marking or variations in the thickness of the running lines, no indication of pen removed and drawing resumed at another point (as one normally does to draw a multi-line drawing…

    After having been exposed as a liar, the guy has changed his story and is now saying that this horrible and traumatic insult happened his way between Chile and Argentina.
