“How bored are the Israel police?” Facebook user Haim Brosh was wondering, after a meme he posted, showing a photoshopped image of himself, carrying an Israeli flag in front of the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount, with the title of the Zionist song “Carry a flag unto Zion” and a call for the Israeli government to finally raise the flag on the Temple Mount — ended up with his arrest in the middle of the street by police detectives.
The cops could not tell a photoshopped image from the real thing, and warned Brosh to cease and desist his subversive activities, such as, we assume, getting his picture taken with an Israeli flag in front of the Al Aqsa mosque with no one noticing.
Since then, a new genre of memes has evolved in the pro-Israel side of Facebook, which we would like all of us to join, because, hey, it’s hot outside and we don’t feel like watching TV right now. Also, we’re patriotic, imaginative, and we know Photoshop.
This is the original meme by Haim Brosh.
This meme was added by Arnon Segal.
This came from Lizi Hameiri.
And Danny Gelman.
Here’s Jameel @ Muqata with his son (they’re wearing T’fillin too)
Then the floodgates were thrown open with this amazing meme (which we already used for the cover image but we love it so much, we figured, what the heck), we believe by Sharon Gabay.
And we went ahead and added the ones below, but before we share them with you, please download this image if you need a foundation background for your memes, and start uploading subversive Jewish Temple Mount images to mess with the fuzz. Send us your mind gifts to www.jewishpress.com/submit-article.
This is a good background image to use.
And this is what we started doing with it…
You recognize Tzipi Hotovely above, right? She said her dream was to raise the flag on the Temple Mount, so, there you go.
Looking forward to your contributions — be funny, if possible, but keep within the limits of a Jewish family newspaper. We hope to run a follow-up story with your best submissions.
