Anne Frank in a Keffiyah?

I found this yesterday stuck to a free newspaper box on Third Avenue and 51st Street in Manhattan. I couldn't believe my eyes, so I had to take a photo. Upon closer inspection I noticed the website for this travesty.

UPDATE 7/09: A Dutch blogger also found one of these stickers in Amsterdam.

UPDATE 7/13: The clueless person who made this awful thing has updated their website and is apparently quite amazed that it is being defaced and erased all over Amsterdam. Shocka! You can view the pics by clicking 'next' under the photo on the home page.

UPDATE January 24, 2008: I notice I am getting a lot of traffic from The Netherlands and Europe. Welcome and thanks for coming by. I'd like to remind the viewers of how the Nazis and the Holocaust affected the Dutch. At that site, I recommend you please take a moment and look at Segregating The Jews.

You'd be surprised at how many moonbats I'm currently teaching (Grad. Education summer school for teachers!)would be "ok wid'dat". They think it's just showing diversity and solidarity at the same time. Or solid-diversity. Or something. I can't wait to see how they teach NIGHT.

Speechless! These are people willfully blind to evil. In fact, they would rather believe a lie rather than the truth. "They exchanged the truth of God for a lie..." (Romans 1:25)

(I guess I'm not speechless after all!)

OH MY GOD!

I've seen some truly disgusting imagery in my time, but this is absolutely vile. To take the image of a poor Jewish girl who died at the hands of the Nazis in the worst atrocity known to modern man, who is beloved the world over, and cross it with the EVIL that is Islam, is simply the worst kind of "art" I can imagine. I thought I had seen it all, but this truly takes the cake. Next time I'm out visiting Brooklyn I'm going to put up some images of Allah superimposed on Divine's body in "Female Troubles." Let's see how they like them apples! I wonder if the owners of Anne's writings are aware of this travesty.

This is surely the most nauseating spectacle I have witnessed in many, many months. Makes me encouraged to create a bit of my own artwork, perhaps. These people are really scum. Thanks for exposing it, UI. God bless.

If I had to take a shot in the dark, I would say that this is a publicity stunt by some up-start t-shirt company that is run by either neo-Nazis or morally blinded leftists who find this kind of imagery "ironic", or somehow "cute"

Either way they are assholes

I love the before and after pics where the artist shows the stencil before and after it is wiped out.

While he or she insinuates that the censoring was done by Jew sympathisers, several were attacked by graffiti writers that were angry that this "artist" vandalized their artwork (which is technically vandalism as well because graffiti is illegal).

He or she is eventually going to get his or her ass kicked for writing over graffiti artists. They take that very seriously.

Regardless, the artist made this stencil knowing that it would offend the people at the Anne Frank House. That doesnt bode well for the good intentions of this sleazy activist.

I sent this "person" a message explaining my feelings on this matter, but not surprisingly I haven't recieved a response.

Just looking at the website it is clear that the intent was to get a rise out of people, which is not something I disagree with in principle. But to use the image of a little girl who was killed by the Nazis is more than bad taste.

Not all that surprised since the Arabs are trying (as they deny the original Holocaust) to expropriate the Holocaust from the Jews.

UI--excellent work. Did you notice in the photos at the t-stencil site you linked the comment under one of the "defaced Banned Franks"?

In one someone had covered it with gold paint of some kind, and this Jew-hater captions this with something like "covered with gold. How fitting." I forget the exact, but you get the point. You should run THAT if possible. I'm no good with screen-shots, but that comment just sums up this ever-present belittling of Jews within a post about yet more anti-Semitism. "....seem to be more offended by the image than the actual war in Israel/Palestine"?!?! Proof positive that most people who can use Photoshop well STILL have no brains.

Hi Pim,

I also noticed he commented on how someone was 'so angry they spelled Israel wrong' when they wrote over it, when the creepy stenciler himself spells it wrong on his home page.

I'm picturing this self-appointed artist as a spoiled, bored, Liberal Euro who hates himself and his miserable life.

Great to see the good people in Amsterdam aren't taking this lying down either.

Which reminds me, next time I'm on 51st Street and Third Avenue, I'll have a magic marker with me.. heh. Don't know why I didn't think of it when I was standing there.

In this case beauty is in the eye of the beholder as much as history is in the mind of the reviser.

It's about as much of a 'coming together' as would the image of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wearing a KKK robe.

Although you or that 'artist' who did this may have some misgivings about policies in the country of Israel drawing that connection with all Jews -- particularly one of the most enduring and touching icons of the Holocaust-- [and all those who died in WW2 at the hands of the Nazis] such as Anne Frank is the matchstick that lights anti-Semitism today. Most of the Islamic world openly dismisses this event in history anyway, so there is an added painful irony. Think hard about what this means. History is not the punchline at the end of a joke. Simply trying to be clever and painting everything with a broad brush isn't intellectually honest and falls far from what we are all capable of.

PS: Graffiti is not only outdated and unauthentic at this point, but extremely bad for the environment.

Why don't you plant trees instead?

Clearly I am very uneducated in the symbolism of this scarf but can somebody explain this a bit further? I just got a scarf that is similar to a keffiyeh, its black and white and is all houndstooth print. I don't want to wear it now if it's so offensive. Thanks :]

ok...a question for those commenting on the keffiyah being a symbol of evil (or islamo fascism or whatever)...

you do realize that the british sas (special forces) have been issued this since WW2, right?

you do realize that there are a lot american military in iraq who wear this on a daily basis, right?

if you are saying that people who wear this are supporting terrorism, you are severely uninformed.

turn off bill 'oreilly and get a fucking clue.

its nothing more than a garment (and a handy one at that in extreme environments)

To anonymous,
Don't you realize that the person who made this purposely put one of the most world's most recognized iconic symbols of the holocaust-- Anne Frank- and the symbol of Arafat's intifada together to deliberately provoke controversy?

And what the heck does any of this have to do with Bill O'Reilly?

95% of the postings on this blog are 100% racist and ignorant. I realize that no one can change a fool's opinion; all I ask is that all of you do some reading on the origins of the Jewish state. Maybe you would find out about the Jewish terrorist gangs (Stern, Irgun, Gush Emunim Underground) who blew up British buildings and massacred villages of Palestinians - both Muslim and Christian.
Maybe if you looked at Israel today, you would see that it is one of very few countries who routinely veto any international proposal to make this world a better, safer place.
Now go back further in Jewish history, say the time of the Spanish Inquisition. Jews lived and prospered in Muslim Spain from the 8th to 11th century - indeed it was called the Golden Age of the Jewry. When Christians had finally conquered all of Spain (1492), Isabelle and Ferdinand executed or expelled all Muslims, Jews and Africans who did not convert. Where did all the Jews go? They were accepted and built new lives in all the surrounding North African Muslim nations.
If you picked up a book from time to time maybe your hatred and fear of all that is different than you wouldn't show as much, or at least your low IQ wouldn't be blatantly showcased.
Menachem Begin was once called Terrorist Number One by the British, many years before he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize along with Sadat.
Israel is an apartheid state and never forget, Nelson Mandela was labelled a terrorist for much of his life.

It seems you're ok with rabid anti-Muslim views. Why is it ok to say these things, but if you say anything about Israel - even if it is a FACT - like "Israel continues to expand and build illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank", you are variously called "anti-semite", "terrorist-sympathiser", or "self-hating Jew."?

Might makes right?

To say 'Allah is Satan' is not racist.

'Schmuckistian work accidents'? Hardly racist. It's a comment on terrorists who blow themselves up before they reach their intended innocent targets.

This a blog were people should be able to speak their minds freely. Your comments are welcome too.

I appreciate that you have posted my 2 previous comments.

There is a difference between freedom of speech and spreading hate.

What if I reword the opinions you have posted above:

Zionists can go to hell but that would be redundant, they are already satan worshipers. God does not want you to kill unarmed civilians, including children, only satan does this. Yahweh = the satan.

To take the image of a poor Bosnian girl who died at the hands of Serbs in the largest mass murder since WWII, and cross it with the EVIL that is Judaism is the worst kind of "art" I can imagine.

The only thing a tefillin is good for is hanging Idiot Defence Force officers before they get a chance to kill more innocent people, demolish more homes, and uproot more trees.

I recently was in Amsterdam and saw this one. I fell in love with the graffiti because her face is so cute and that someone actually uses her face as graffiti and make graffiti like that all over the city.

So the scarf she's wearing is actually symbolizing Islam? How do you know? Is it a typical islamian scarf? (I'm not ironic, I really ask a question, because I don't know).

I just have to be sure to love this graffiti or hate it. I hope you can respond me even though this post is old. Thanks in advance.

Hi Espen,

She does have a cute face. A beautiful face. I wish her face were all over Europe. But not wearing the kaffiyeh which has indeed come to symbolize not just arabs in general but the palestinian cause. Given the current state of the bloody unending intifada, terror that the world tries to justify, these images are a juxtaposition that I can liken to putting a KKK hood on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I appreciate your comments.
Thanks. Urban Infidel

anne frank and the palestinian struggle is the same--trapped, scared and terrorized by genocidal maniacs.
Anne by Nazis
Palestine by ashkeNAZIs

Oh wait---I forgot--the anne frank story was faked by her father and the holocaust a hoax
but the palestinian suffering is real.
So clearly, that keffiyah is elevating the status of anne frank.

That's an unfair comparison, the keffiyeh is a traditional middle east article of clothing. Since when has KKK hoods been used by innocent people to protect themselves from the environmental elements? The keffiyeh isn't a uniform.

My My. Are these Jews that are posting here? I sure as hell hope not! For a Jewish person to even for a second hypocritically attack this artist over a picture of a mere mortal albeit one that suffered horribly during the Holocaust and turn around and make claims about Muslims who are upset about pictures of their prophet Mohammed is just tooo funny!
It doesnt surprise me that the very same people that suffered under the Holocaust and that are now causing the suffering of the Palestinian people would take offense at this image. I wouldnt like being made to be the hypocrites that you Jews all are lately! Evil pure evil

Look at this putz :


"islmo fascism can go to hell that would be redundant they already are satan worshipers

g-d does not want you to commit terror only the satan does this.

allah = the satan

yochanan al lgf"


I recollect a time when the same thing was said about Jews and obviously this is a Jew going around making libelous statements about Muslims and why? Hes pissed off because hey wont just die and leave his "Eretz Israel".
Hey putz...look up Irgun and Hagana. Your Hashem must = Satan

Allah = God. Even the Christians of the Middle East say Allah. I love ignorant ass morons like you. Pretty soon thanks to idiots like you its going to be the in thing to call Jews "Heebs" and "Kikes" again. You all take us back to the Middle Ages...you, your religion and the other fanatics on the Muslim side.

Its art. Thats all. I bet you Jews attacked this man enough that he had to take his website down. You laugh that his work was trashed! What does that say for you? It just proves you are just as fanatical as those that you claim are the fanatics. Everytime you point your finger at someone as witnessed by this moron claiming that "Only Muslims commit terror" while your Menachem Begin himself blew up the King David Hotel, there will be 100 fingers pointed back at you. STFU and do yourselves a favor. You all sound like a bunch of babies with your bullshit crocodile tears!

You should feel ashamed that shes wearing that Kefrayeh not for the fact that shes wearing the Kefrayeh but for what it represents. Funny how you all love to use the term Nazis when you think its someone attacking you but god forbid when its used towards a Jew in a true manner its disgusting and untrue. Your proof is right here folks...the Jew calling Allah satan. I bet this ignorant moron is the first to say that Muslims teach their kids to hate...I wonder where you folks learned your hate!
