Let Your Freak Flag Fly
Interesting story about flagmakers in Gaza working overtime to produce flags for Hamas to raise over Israeli settlements that are to be evacuated later this month. hat tip: LGF
Flagmaker Haitham Abu Khaled said he and others would make at least 10,000 green Hamas banners for the settlement takeover. In July, another flagmaker said Abbas's Palestinian Authority had ordered up 60,000 national red-black-and-green banners.
So flag making is an actual occupation (no pun intended) in Gaza. Kid Various was always curious about the state of flagmakers in the Arab world, and the fact that American and Israeli flags must be, like, the number one selling item in the catalog. After all, where do they get all those American and Israeli flags to burn in the street? One would think they're not ordering them from Pennsylvania...
