My Mideast Punchlines: Hello, Dolly….

Customs officials have seized a shipment of dolls shown wearing Keffiyehs and holding stones in a throwing position.

The dolls, which were dressed in the Palestinian colours of red, green, black, and white, and in face-covering keffiyehs which had the slogans “Jerusalem is ours,” and “Jerusalem, here we come” inscribed on them, were found in a container which was labelled by the importer as having had contained articles of clothing, rugs, and plastic products.

The dolls, which originated in the United Arab Emirates and were en route to the Palestinian Authority, were meant to be used as tools of incitement for Palestinian youth.

Small FistI’ll leave you to guess why the faces of the dolls were covered.
