Pardon my ignorance, what is Palestinian about this?
Jews ≠ Zionists
Palestinians ≠ Hamas
Satmar ≠ SatmarHQ

From United,

"April is National Arab American Heritage Month. The balloons were a part of our Arab American Heritage Month celebration, which we held had at the gate of our Dubai flight on April 30.

The intention was to have the balloon colors match the United Arab Emirates flag, and many Arab countries have similar color schemes on their flags.

We do celebrations like these for many heritages/ethnicities during a designated period in which they’re celebrated more broadly (i.e. a heritage month)."

Fun fact: The Palestinian flag is most identical to the Jordanian flag (aside from a small star in the Jordanian flag), which may (or may not) be a coincidence

Most Arab countries have a variation of the same flag. Was intended to give them a national identity of sorts (Arabs were/are very tribal) to assist the British and French in conquering the ME from the Ottomans. So yes, any time you see the Palestinian flag, remember that it is a symbol of colonialism.

Fun Fact #2: When Jordan took over the "west bank" that "belongs" to the "Palestinians" after 1948, no one complained, no one yelled, no one condemned Jordan for "stealing" anyone's land. Only after Jordan attacked Israel for no reason and Israel was forced to take the land in self defense did all the terror start...

good point was there a single comment/protest from any Palestinian supporter between 1948-1967?
