Ismail Haniyeh's New Look
I was happy to see that the latest spate of kidnappings and killings in Gaza didn't distract attention from some other important news, such as Ismail Haniyeh's "new look." (in Arabic)
Haniyeh has sported a Koufeyeh lately. He first showed up in a red one but then, perhaps after learning that it is associated with the leftists in Palestine, he decided to wear the black and white one. This wardrope decision earned him the accusation that he is imitating Arafat, but two of his spokesmen denied such baseless and malicious charges and threatened to sue anyone who would question the prime minister's radical chicness. They refused, however, to confirm or deny the news that a recent shipment of multiple colored koufeyehs has arrived in Gaza directly from Urban Outfitters.
