Death of a Symbol

"Hi, I've lost a scarf. Have you had any handed in?"

"I'm afraid not. All I have is this Shemagh"

"Yeah that's the one" Person is passed Shemagh.

"So you're a supporter of the intifada?" Gestures at scarf.


"That 'scarf' is a symbol of a struggle against occupation... Or is it just for fashion"

Looks confused


"Ah OK" Glares at her... She backs off and leaves.

I have asked that same question to people, they never seem to understand. I thought though that they had gone out of fashion now.
