new forms of israeli theft

A friend sent me a link to ebay.com a while back on which there was a shop (as opposed to an individual person) selling “Israeli keffiyehs” in blue and white. I realized that not a lot of people have heard about this most recent form of Israeli theft of Palestinian culture and so I’m posting it here with a link to some website that apparently sells them. They’ve stolen every aspect of Palestinian culture and claimed it as their own–felafel, hummos, dabke, embroidery. What’s next?
