I agree that Sinai was not part of Israel according to UN partition. But the OP claims that the eeeeevil Zionists plan to take over the lands that are described in Biblical texts. And yet Israel captured Sinai,built lots of stuff there ,settled it. And then gave it back. The logic is lacking a bit, don't you think?

Israel has said many times they want to regain their biblical homeland. And Israel didn't just give it back they lost it after the October war with Egypt.


They lost it long before that. A map posted on page one shows the ancient extension under King David. It started to shrink shortly thereafter and just kept shrinking.

Final bit of research from me. The designs of the 10-agorot and 5-agorot coins originated from previous 100-shekel and 50-shekel coins of 1984, which were then devalued by a factor of 1000:

commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Israel_5_Agorot_1985_Edge,_Obverse_%26_Reverse.jpg

They are each said to depict the appearance of ancient coins, and here's a website showing the original coin which inspired the designs of the 100-shekel and 10-agorot coins:

It does look like a genuine ancient coin, but the shape isn't the same. It's possible the designer decided to distort the shape and delete the ancient letters to allow space for the words around the edge of the coin, and a larger menorah in the middle. But if so, what a shame he didn't also choose to smooth out the troublesome indentation at the top left.
