Keffiyeh 4

What can I say that I haven't said before (1, 2, 3 times now)? I find the disregard with which my peers don the keffiyeh utterly offensive. Just so sad.

i'm curious how you know that they are all doing it with disregard.
i appreciate that you were going to wear one until you stopped to consider how you felt about the implications, but i wonder how you leapt from how you made your choice to the assumption that everyone else made theirs the same way.

is it possible that they chose to wear it with a full knowledge of the issues, perhaps even fuller than your own?

i dont have one, but i have considered buying one.
if i did so it would be representative of the solidarity i feel for the innocent people of palestine and lebanon.
the most recent time i felt the urge to do so was when israel invaded lebanon, and my own government did nothing to condemn it.

would you have seen me and assumed i was wearing it with no regard to the reality?
would you assume i hadnt considered and overcome the less savoury connections people wish to make with the nazis or with the common portrayal of the evil arab terrorist?

i appreciate it is a thorny issue to discuss. you might want to be wary of making it thornier.
