Gaza Fashion Trend: Rockets!

The must-have accessory of the season

Print Email

Following the recent conflict in Gaza, there is a new fashion trend sweeping through Gaza and the West Bank. Rocket-maaaaania! What started as a weapon fired indiscriminately on a civilian population, the rocket has graduated into the must-have accessory of the Palestinian territories.

The boy in the picture above is the latest to trumpet the trend, this one, a model of the Iranian-designed M-75 long-range rocket. Kid-tested, father-approved. Capable of reaching Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

But the rocket trend isn’t just for men. The ladies love ‘em too. Check out a picture from earlier this week featuring a group of women parading fake Qassam rockets at a rally in Nablus. Hold them upright or Radio Raheem-style, they are versatile, even if they lack a basic aiming mechanism.

But what if you don’t want to carry around a rocket all day? Don’t despair, consumers! There is also the musk of rocket. According to Foreign Policy, the M-75 fragrance–available in both his and hers scent–is literally taking off!

According to the owner of the company, Shadi Adwan, “The fragrance is pleasant and attractive, like the missiles of the Palestinian resistance, and especially the M-75.” Its goal? “To remind citizens of the victory wherever they may be, even in China.”

Next stop: John Galliano.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

If this were actually funny, I would find it a lot less offensive.

    This is worthy of The Onion (the article, not your comment). You’re offended? There’s this little X at the top right of the window (or a little red button at the top left, if you swing that way).

What is the white scarf on the man behind the kid with the rocket about? The one with the star?

PhillipNagle says:

The truth is the arabs don’t want peace with Israel, they want the destruction of Israel. That is what they say to their own people in arabic. The sooner Israel realizes this, the better off it will be.
