Delias.com ‘Peace Scarf’ Becomes ‘Euro Scarf’
Delias.com’s online clothing store for teenage girls has responded to complaints about the Palestinian terrorist symbol, the kaffiyeh, appearing in their catalog as a “Peace Scarf.” Several LGF readers forwarded their form mail:
Dear dELiA*s Customer,
Thank you for your e-mail and concern regarding the scarf featured. We apologize that this item has offended anyone; this was not our intention. Please be assured that our company did not intend to imply any support for terrorism.
The name given to this item was originally suggested by our vendor and will be changed online immediately and in future catalogs. We continue to carefully reviewing each concern we receive.

They’re still going to sell it; they’re just changing the name.
To: Euro Scarf.
