This one hits me close to home because, I’ll admit, I shop at Urban Outfitter. I’ve been aware of their politics for some time but this one takes the cake.
Urban is marketing a so-called “anti-war scarf” which looks suspiciously similar to the keffiyeh, popularized by Arch-Terrorist Yasser Arafat, and a favotire accessory of the terrorist Hamas organization.
I’m very diasapointed. I was alway willing to overlook the obvious liberal agenda of Urban Outfitter because CEO Richard Hayne is a staunch republican, but this one goes too far.
Feel free to shoot them a complaint.
Urban has pulled the Anti-War keffiyehs. From the Jerusalem Post:
The scarves, also sold on-line, were priced at $20 in several different color combinations as part of Urban Outfitters’ Spring Fashion women’s accessories range. “Due to the sensitive nature of this item, we will no longer offer it for sale,” a notice on the Web site stated. “We apologize if we offended anyone, this was by no means our intention.”
