The Kaffiyeh Has Become a Bit of a Joke, Hasn’t It!

At first I, too, was horrified by the spread of the Kaffiyeh for fashion. It always reminded me of Arafat, therefore it was evil. But I have to admit, now, maybe it’s been devalued a little by this.

And, when I see something like the sight I saw in Barcelona today, it is looking just a little bit like yet another throw away fashion item. Remember $200 pashminas anyone? $5 on any street corner today.

So perhaps the cult of Palestinianism (as Bat Ye’or calls it) might go the same way one day. We can but hope.
