All the rage, supposedly

American moonbats wrap themselves in Arafat’s keffiyehs. Meanwhile, according to a new report, Palestinian boys are going ga-ga over…American Army wear. (hat tip: PFB)

Wearing a green Hamas headband, waving a Hamas flag, swinging a Kalashnikov and chanting for

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.
