The Zionist Jewish Israeli Kaffiyeh




Two Israeli designers have made a new Jewish version of the kaffiyeh! It is similar to the black Arabic keffiyeh but instead is blue and white, with six-pointed stars instead of lines and circles for the pattern. Although one could hardly call it new, since Jews the world over and Arab Jews in particular have worn headwraps and turbans for centuries. After the rise of Islam, in some countries, it was a priviledge restricted to Muslims only.
I really like the style of the kaffiyah and in fact I own the black Arabic version (got it in East Yerushalayim for a cheap 3$.). My dad yelled at me when I walked around Jerusalem wearing it around my neck! For good reason, too: unfortunately, I've found that it has come to be a symbol for Israel's destruction and Arab domination over Eretz Israel. This wasn't the case until the 1st intifada. In fact, Israeli Hagana fighters would often wear the kaffiyeh when they went into the Negev desert. It is a light cotton garment that is useful for protection from the sun and the cold winds. This new kaffiyah gives a powerful message to our Arab cousins: we are here to stay, and we are more alike than you think! Too bad it costs like $25...Anyone want to make me a Hannuka present? :)

Nothing about Israel is original, everything they "own" and OCCUPY is stolen. It's no wonder why Hitler didn't want you Heebs around. Apparently stealing land isn't sufficient...

Look at tabouleh, for example. A traditional Arabic dish has more recently become known as the "Israeli Salad". Ooh O.K., wow Mr. Sharon, I must say, that is an outstanding product of Israels originality. Did you guys come up with that term all by yourselves? Why don't you go back to basics and graze on your Matza Ball Soup ... or maybe some Potato Latkas?

I see that you've moved on to bigger and better things like turning a traditional Palestinian headdress into what is virtually a joke. Stars of David draped over your head and wrapped around your neck? Stick to your yamika, please.

But no, its obviously not enough, it never will be enough. It isn't enough to steal land, food, and traditional clothing. Even after somehow managing to deprive the Palestinians of their unalienable rights, Israelis remain dissatisfied.

Unfortunately, someone in WWII didn't finish their job.

HAVE A NICE DAY!

EWWWWWWW. That thing is GROSS!!! The keffiyeh is Palestinian (or at least Arab) NOT Jewish. Oh yeah, I'm sure you yahoudi were all decked out in keffiyehs when you were living in Russia/Hungary/Poland/Germany, right? You already stole their land and their culture so why must you go after their clothing? This is a perfect example of why people hate the Jews, because you act like bitches.

Gosh.... you and your cohorts above should know that a brain -- even the size of a pea like yours (pl.) -- is a terrible thing to waste.

We Jews, both male and female, used to wear keffiyeh-like head coverings in the Middle East just like many other Near Eastern nations until the aggressive, expansionist, impelialist Arab occupation forbade us from so doing, since the 7th century when they first overran our ancestral Land of Israel and began usurping elements of our culture, including cuisine, while robbing us of our land and copying elements of our religion in the process.

Take a few steps back and reflect upon the tone and vocabulary you're using here. You ooze nauseating racist hatred in overflowing doses.
Get yourself a damned education and deprogram your revisionist anti-Jewish indoctrination, you Nazi-wannabes.

I especially get a kick out of the fake Jewish girl. LMFAO......

Hey "PLO", are you mere internet Palinazis, or do you actively go out daily to try to murder Jews offline?

See, Julia, you certainly know whereof you speak, being a bitch yourself.
Have you already polished your jackboots today?

I hope one day we'll have real Israeli leaders with courage and a genuine Jewish vision at the helm in Yerushalayim who will drive you Palinazi leeches out of our ancestral indigenous land for good. IN THE MEANTIME, FUCK OFF

zionist keffiyeh is insulting and just adds the colonial violence. adding this insult to the image of jewish identity is not helpful to anyone. go to hell stupid zionist appropriators, shut your mouths islamophobic assholes, and learn to think straight, stupid anti-semites.
