The politicisation of cold weather gear.
A friend of mine, Justin Randle, is currently working in Israel/Palestine, and overnight he sent me this email:
It is really hard to find thermals in Jerusalem. It is even harder if, like me, you can’t do internet searches in Hebrew. Also, when you have just introduced a Palestinian friend – bound for freezing Geneva – to the existence of thermals as a means to keep warm and offset fear of the cold, you naturally want to help her procure a set. After an exhaustive google search, I finally find a place in Israel that sells thermals.
PS. They don’t harm their rabbits.
