    A flick through the November issue of the British edition of Vogue revealed one accessory I did not expect to see. After pages of faux fur, sequinned clutches and designer feathered capes, I happened upon something rather more surprising: a full-page shot of actress Tilda Swinton sporting a knitted scarf emblazoned not with a designer logo but with the word “Palestine.”

    The image is certainly compelling. Swinton stands defiantly, hands on hips, staring coolly into the camera as if daring the viewer to challenge her views. The red, green, black and white scarf, made by eccentric British fashion designer Bella Freud, features a Palestinian flag and the word “Palestine” along with an image depicting a key, the symbol of Palestinian refugees.

    Whatever the chic du jour there, be it polar bears, greenwash, Prii, or ... palistanians.

    Tilda Swinton? Who the heck is that?
    Not really a star from her movies listing. More like a small asteroid.

    1) If this is the best you can come up with, you are pretty darn lame.
    2)Even if you came up with Julia Roberts, the fact an actor supports your position is not really an endorsement. Not unless they have something extra beyond their acting work. Natalie Portman, for example has a Psychology BA.
