The handkerchief of the terror

A kufiya or Palestinian handkerchief showed in a commercial irritates the reactionaries of the United States

Rachael Ray. Kufiya. Palestinian handkerchief
Rachael Ray terrifying to the personnel

The human imbecility seems no to have remedy and there comes a moment in which one loses heart already. Of The Country:

The polemic has come to the United States after an announcement that shows to a woman with a Palestinian handkerchief presenting a product. The chain of feeding Dunkin’ Donuts it has had to face in the last days to the whole criticism rain and has turned out to be forced to withdraw his announcement of the television and Internet, as he informs the BBC.

In the images, there is seen Rachael Ray, celebrity of the American television, announcing iced coffee with a Palestinian handkerchief in the neck. After the throwing of the announcement, the protests on the part of users were not late in coming denouncing that the mark supports the extremist Islam.

What comes to be a bullshit equivalent to consider the txapela to be a symbol of the terrorism member of ETA. Eternal war reproduces the impeccable answer of the Israeli journalist Gershom Gorenberg, which I translate for them:

Therefore, [Daniel] Pipes, Michelle Malkin, [Pam] Geller and the others, pay attention: the words ‘alcohol‘, ‘algebra‘ and ‘algorithm‘ are in fact Arabs. There are the test of an infamous Islamic conspiracy to destroy the western society. If the phrase “43 % of alcohol” appears in his whisky bottle, it is the proof that Al-Qaeda controls Scotland. If one says to his children that they should study algebra, the fact is that the school has turned into a madrassa. All the computer programs are a part of the cyberwar, because they use algorithms. If you are a real patriot, not only it should be afraid; it should be terrified.

What do I do with the kufiya that I bought of memory in an Arab country? Will I be a terrorism suspect for keeping it in my closet?

    I believe that the announcement what it demonstrates is that - unfortunately - the market has turned to gobble a symbol (slightly already clear since h&m it began selling it). what demonstrates the reaction is that they do not know in fashionable topics …

    Very good your contribution, Paul. Precisely I have just read that the Palestinian handkerchiefs are making now in … China (as almost quite). This has taken to the unemployment workpeople of Arab countries who were devoting themselves to make them.

    A good Sorcerer as you must be suspicious excellently. I suggest to go out already of the closet where you keep your kufiya, and to the one that stings to him that it scratches.

    A hug.

    It has been decades since the young Basque nationalists plant the glades pañuelito. Since notice if the rest of the Basque population the ETA had been thought by us … of and above …

    Do you know what is simbología …? claiming something without speaking.? The message, nonexistent insurance, perhaps it is not so much. The Islam has sworn death to everything what is American or western it is no wonder that the answer of many people is that of pushing back what many people consider to be one of the values of the Moslem world. No, it is not so of idiots to push it back. The fear is free. The one that they gave me is had by me at home and I am not going to put bombs, but that does not mean that it does not understand that we not all live with the same tension. In Israel they have many examples of that. The flags also are rags and there are wars for them and they kill themselves those who offend them in many, many countries. Let's not simplify, I believe that we are more intelligent than that.

    I always knew that Dunkin’ Donuts

    they were the red some of shit (with a little hole in the center)

    and estoooo … talking each other of Dunkin’ Donuts I would praise myself more for ‘chain of poisoning’ than for “chain of feeding”

    [...] who thought Dunkin’ Donuts was supporting international jihad, there's to piece of it here: Therefore, [Daniel] Pipes, Michelle Malkin, [Pam] Geller and the others, pay attention: them [...]

    Man that they it consider that they support the extreme Islam if it is a drove of donkeys but who should not take the happy pañuelito, since it has his part of reason.
    As some of them say that it is a symbol, or rather they have turned it into a symbol, already not of Palestinian of ideology of lefts and rather radical. And with not very clear certain relations it is necessary only to look at some hamas photos and if something there is emblem in addition to the weapon and the bombs is the pañuelito, therefore it is normal that they identify it with the terrorism.

    It is as if here someone does one he announces and remangada and re-brushed black pants are dressed in blue shirt and the Spaniard announces olives, it is sure that someone would say that it is an apology of the phalange or of fascism.

    The most curious thing is that if I see someone with a pañuelito of those, already it scales me, why in general, it is going to have a few a little more radical ideas of the account, if it leads a purse of cloth of violet sack of that time to running already far very far why it will start in spite of wanting to do an assembly to go to buy the bread.

    In the news about the country there is certain tufillo to justify that our president evil advised once again was putting the paw allowing to photograph with a Palestinian handkerchief, when someone has certain position it must be more diplomatic and avoid possible clashes for bullshit of this type.

    It is like when Carlos robira fotografi with a crown of thorns and laughing surely that many people took offense, now I fix that it does not do the same with the koran …. and that it is known that it does not matter to me nothing more looked like to me a tontada, but I understand that there are the people who takes offense.
