In Pictures: What If Palestine Had Its Own Currency?

Palestinians have been without their own currency for more than six decades. Now one designer wants to change that

Designer Jehad Naji, 29, pictured here with his wife Haneen Abu Samhadana, had the idea of designing a currency for Palestine after a British journalist asked him about which currency to use during a visit to Gaza.

Naji had to explain to him that there was none and that Palestinians have to use the Israeli shekel (Sanad Abu Latifa)
