Definitions for "10 Agorot controversy"
The design of the Israeli 10 agorot coin was briefly a subject of controversy. In a press conference called by the PLO chairman Yasser Arafat in Geneva, in December 13, 1988, he claimed that the obverse design of this coin incorporates a map of a "Greater Israel" that "goes from the Mediterranean to Mesopotamia, from the Red Sea to the Euphrates", and thus reflects Zionist expansionism.
