Marketing Terror Symbols to Teens
Urban Outfitters called their version an “anti-war scarf.”
UK clothing store ARK was a little more honest; they called it an “Arafat scarf.”
When Kirsten Dunst showed up with one in Teen Vogue magazine, they called it a “breezy global-chic scarf.”
Now the symbol of Palestinian terrorism and murder, the kaffiyeh, is being marketed at yet another store for young people, Alloy, this time as a “Riviera scarf.”
What’s going on here? It’s happened too often to be sheer coincidence.
