Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Jonathan Greenblatt's racist keffiyeh smear is another chapter in the ADL's war on Palestinians | Mondoweiss |

Rather than a symbol of hate, the Palestinian keffiyeh is a source of pride.

The keffiyeh or hatta is a traditional Palestinian headdress. It is synonymous with Palestinians and symbolizes Palestinians' connections to fishing, olive trees, and our homeland. 

I found these unchallenged comments repugnant, outrageous, and dangerous. In the days following the appearance, no one in the mainstream media nor any politicians demanded an apology.

Greenblatt's racist smear and his deliberate equation of Palestinian symbols with white supremacy didn't seem to pose any controversy even though they promote hate and could instigate violence against anyone who supports the Palestinian people. The intentional omission of Palestinian voices in the traditional media allows this kind of racism and false allegation to spread.
