Question: how do you give a woman a compliment who’s wearing Gazan M-75 perfume. The one named after a rocket. First, did she buy it or was it a gift? I suppose you have the odor of the deceased could be worked into something Byronesque, or Keats being burnt on the seashore. Its so Che Guevara, almost erotic misogyny within the cult of death. How about Quassam eau de toilette? .Can the poorer just buy some product named after the random mortar launched pell-mell with the divine help of Allah will kill someone style fetish object that makes them far-lefty-anarchist hip and you don’t have to kiss the dead baby in front of a horde of camera wielding journalists after they dragged your neighbor through the streets on a chain attached to a motorcycle? …
(see link at end)…A Gazan cosmetics company has decided to name its newest fragrance after long range M-75 missiles which were fired by Hamas into Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, during the recent Operation Pillar of Defense between Israel and Palestine.
According to Gazan cosmetics company owner, Shadi Adwan, naming the company’s newest perfume after the M-75 missile is in order ‘to honor the victory of the Palestinian people and resistance during the eight-day war,’ he said to Islamist Daily Al-Resalah, and reported by the Times of Israel.
“The fragrance is pleasant and attractive, like the missiles of the Palestinian resistance, and especially the M-75,” with Adwan stating the purpose of the Gazan perfume “to remind citizens of the victory wherever they may be, even in China.”
The fragrance will be released in both a male and female version, with the M-75 perfume to cost double the price of other perfumes in the company’s collection. The high price is said to reflect the perfume’s unique ingredients, “worthy of the victory in the Gaza strip.”
The Israel-Gaza Conflict of 2012 occurred between November 14-21, 2012. During this time 1,506 rockets were launched from Gaza into Israel, among them the the M-75 missile. The M-75 missile is manufactured in Gaza by Hamas’s Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades. Hamas claims that the missiles have a range of up to 46 miles.
…For the first time in history, Hamas launched not one but two missiles at Jerusalem, which is considered to be a holy city in Islam. The Prophet Muhammed is said to have ascended to heaven at the site of the Dome of the Rock, and is one of of Islam’s holiest sites.
This is not the first time that a fragrance has been released which celebrates war against Israel. In 2006, a perfume called “the scent of resistance,” was released in Lebanon, only months after the Second Lebanon War.Read More:http://unpromisedone.blogspot.ca/2012/12/new-gazan-perfume-named-after-m-75.html?spref=tw
(see link at end)…Businessman and producer David Matalon offered the best line of the evening when, during the live auction-style fundraiser, he pledged $8,000 to the FIDF and, “in honor of Stevie Wonder, another $2,000.”
“I’ll have him call you to tell you he loves you,” Haim Saban quipped from the stage.
Other than that moment of levity, the silence surrounding Wonder’s cancelation continued, although emcee Alexander seized an opportunity to share some unusually candid remarks about the complexities of the Israeli- Palestinian conflict. In a lengthy and serious address, he talked about his love for both Israelis and Palestinians and how his work with the organization One Voice has exposed him to both sides of the conflict.
“This conflict continues because of the inability of leaders to break through this impasse and find a way to peace,” he said.
Knowing before whom he stood — a predominantly Israeli-American and Jewish crowd – Alexander was careful to balance his pro-Palestinian remarks with strong supportive messages about Israel. The most vigorous applause came when he referred to the Jewish state as the most “maligned, underappreciated and hardest challenged nation on the planet,” and expressed admiration for its soldiers.
“I believe that the men and women soldiers that defend [Israel] are among the most honorable and noble soldiers the world has ever seen,” Alexander said, though he added that sometimes, “they have made mistakes.”
He thanked the crowd for the opportunity to share his thoughts. Read More:http://www.jewishjournal.com/hollywoodjew/item/fidf_show_goes_on_without_stevie_wonder_video
