Simply Dumb was outraged that Urban Outfitters was marketing the keffiahs under the label "anti-war scarf".
Since when has the keffiah been a symbol of peace? I find it both embarrassing and appalling that Urban Outfitters has decided to market this modern symbol of hatred/intolerance and anti-Semitism under the label "anti-war scarf".

There were a number of bloggers who had begun to organize a boycott of Urban Outfitters; have a look at the Technorati cluster. The scarf has now been removed from Urban Outfitter's online catalog.
