No longer is the keffieyh just a symbol of Palestinian solidarity, but its become a part of London fashion. I think. I just seem to see a lot of Londoners wearing the scarf around the neck, and I assume that because they don’t look Arab, its not a political statement. But if I’m wrong, then a lot of Londoners wear the scarf as a political statement. Either way, it’s interesting. Wikipedia tells me that Topshop, a popular clothing store in the UK, sells them. (Its like an upscale Forever 21 selling it.)
