The theory goes like that: if you suspect a foreign conspiracy against your country, then the conspirators would be funding their locals agents with the foreign country’s currency. Well, this is at least what the Syrian TV and Iranian Al-Alam Channel think, who are in the same league with Addounia TV.

Believe it or not, as part of the evidence to prove the “conspiracy” against Syria, they portrayed some foreign currencies with the supposedly captured agents! I don’t know why foreign countries don’t do it with the Syrian currency or U.S. dollar, which is more sensible, but here you go:

Starting from bottom side of the photo and going clockwise: Turkish currency, 1 Israeli Sheqel, unknown currency, 10 Filipino Peso, and 10 Lebanese pounds! Yes, 10 Liras!! I didn’t know Philippine was part of the conspiracy too, but assuming they receive it, where do they spend it?

Let’s look closely at each:

This version of Israeli Sheqel has ceased to exist in 1986:

10 Filipino Peso is worth $0.23, and apparently it’s old Philippine money as well:

Our 10 Liras doesn’t exist in people’s hands now. But if you insist on it, it’s worth $0.0067 i.e. less than 1 cent!

My biggest question: where does the moukhabarat managed to get hold of these rare banknotes? Pity the audience of the propaganda channels.
