2 from 4 ain’t bad

Postscript to ‘The Palestinians are upset’

We are pleased to note that two of the four complaints we made have been addressed. All references to the head of the Palestinian delegation in Australia as ambassador have been corrected. The offensive illustration has been removed.

Hanan Dover is still labelled as no more than outspoken and the reality that the keffiyeh is not exclusively Palestinian has not been addressed. Still 50% isn’t a bad result.

One thing I didn’t notice before or perhaps this was an addition. Yasser Arafat in his  trademark keffiyeh is merely labeled an activist. Rather a weak description for a man otherwise described as the Father of Modern Terrorism.

Even more than Leila Khaled, he provided the connection in people’s mind between the keffiyeh and bloody murder.
