All the rage, supposedly

Wearing a green Hamas headband, waving a Hamas flag, swinging a Kalashnikov and chanting for
Israel’s demise, Bassem Shorah looks to be a prototypical Palestinian militant.

His olive green shirt, however, tells a different story. It’s a spot-on replica of those worn by soldiers in the United States Army, replete with combat patches and unit designations.

Though he’s a committed Islamist activist in a movement that denounces the United States for supporting Israel and occupying Iraq, Shorah proudly sports what has become the latest trend in Palestinian street wear: US military apparel.

“This is the new fashion in the market,” says Shorah. “It’s a show of force, because the US army is powerful. It’s a symbol of strength and of our refusal to put down arms.”

But so much for the reported trend. The article includes this far more likely attitude:

I just bought it because I like the way it looks, but I’ll burn it now as soon as I go home,” says Ibrahim Abu Zarif, 20, when told during a pro-Hamas rally that the patch on his left breast pocket says US Army.

Read the entire moral equivalence-steeped article, which cluelessly asserts that “militancy” is only now becoming “a dominant theme in Palestinian culture” and that Palestinian youths are only now embracing “militant” garb.

Hello? It is as it has always been. “Militant” garb isn’t a U.S. Army uniform. Militant garb looks like this:
