Interested in Raed Jarrarâ€™s adventure at JFK? You too can have your very own â€œI am a robberâ€� (or whatever it says in that funny moon-man language) t-shirt.
In fact, â€œwe will not be silentâ€� apparently comes from a Goethe-quoting German resistance group who distributed pamphlets in 1942 and 1943. Not clear where or when they used the phrase (anyone?), but their first pamphlet supposedly closed with a phrase that remains relevant today: â€œevery people deserves the regime it is willing to endure.â€�
Anyway, the shirts are available in Arabic, Farsi and Spanishâ€“with an English subtitleâ€“from an American Artists Against War group. Purchase is by donation to their campaign (though what this entails other than pissing off Jet Blue employees and JFK mukhabarat is unclear) on their website.
