Marketing Terror Symbols to Teens

Aug 29, 2007 LGF

Urban Outfitters called their version an “anti-war scarf.”

UK clothing store ARK was a little more honest; they called it an “Arafat scarf.”

When Kirsten Dunst showed up with one in Teen Vogue magazine, they called it a “breezy global-chic scarf.” called it a “peace scarf,” but when people protested they changed the name to “Euro scarf.”

Now the symbol of Palestinian terrorism and murder, the kaffiyeh, is being marketed at yet another store for young people, Alloy, this time as a “Riviera scarf.”
