Adding “In” Shirt To Injury

Introducing the latest trend in Gaza: The Gilad Shalit shirt

The first image of Gilad Shalit out of Gaza has captured the attention of many in Israel and around the world. Shalit was led by Hamas men wearing civilian clothing including a plaid shirt. But while most focused on his gaunt frame, it appears many Palestinians were more interested in his outfit, which became an immediate trend in Gaza.

Merchants in the Strip are now offering “The Shalit shirt” in a wide range of colors, for NIS 60 ($16.5). The demand, it seems, is very high.

Evidence of the new fashion trend can be found on Facebook where at least 10 pages have been created in the last few days devoted to “Gilad Shalit’s shirt.” Thousands of web surfers have become fans.

One page stated, “The Shalit shirt has become the shirt of the month in Gaza – it is being sold for NIS 50.” A surfer wrote, “If there was a company producing this shirt in large quantities they will run out.”

Great to see that the inmates of ‘concentration camp” Gaza can afford to spend over $16 USD on a shirt when they are supposedly starving.

But no matter how much money they have, they are still morally bankrupt.
