In the past, Palestinians and their allies have gotten extremely angry when Israeli Jews would make their own versions of the keffiyeh headdress, or when they would wear patterns based on the keffiyeh, claiming that this is “cultural appropriation” and “theft of Palestinian culture.”
For some reason, though, I hear no protests when the tiny number of members of Neturei Karta put on keffiyehs. Why aren’t they stealing Palestinian heritage?
Or when Palestinians say that they are against others “stealing” their faux culture, does that only apply to Zionists, and anti-Zionists are free to steal away?
