Take Back the Color Orange II?

Haaretz has an article about all the orange clothing from this year's Spring fashion collections. Apparently, as in seasons past, clothing and accessories in the color orange have been quite the fashion trend. Unfortunately, these orange fashion collections are not exactly flying off the shelves this year, due to the widespread wearing of the color by those protesting against the disengagement. According to the article, many stores are finding themselves stuck with large amount of orange inventory, that they cannot sell even when they steeply discount it. I myself noticed a similar trend of people avoiding the color so as not to be seen as trying to make a political statement, right here. One fashion designer, Ronen Cohen, is seemingly quite perturbed by the phenomenon:
I myself love orange, and at an event in my store recently I purposely wore orange: They won't take the color away from me.
Good luck with that.

Orange has been a favorite color of mine for years. I'm not giving it up just to avoid making a (potential) statement.

If I was "somebody" maybe I'd consider it, but B'H I'm "nobody" and as such I can do as I like.

This Shabbat was "Orange Shabbat" at my shul and I think at others, as well. A few men wore orange or peach shirts and there were some orange kippot. Some women were also wearing various shades of orange but I didn't know who was wearing to show support for Gush Katif and who was wearing it for fashion reasons.

Now I'm wondering about my orange orange on my blue-and-bronze seder plate. If orange is still the hot topic by spring, will people think it's a political statement?

From here we can see the close affinity between radical feminism and radical nationalism.

Hey,maybe in light of Heshy's post below, maybe they were drinking orange juice without a bracha and thats why its coming back to haunt them


Why Jews DON'T Celebrate yom hatzmuoth or yom hashoa

Yom hatzmuoth (Israels day of Independence) is not celebrated among Orthodox Jews because it was established by atheist of the kenesset and it was marked for the month of Iyur, a time of Jewish mourning. How dare anyone institute the saying of hallel at such a time.

These same atheists also established yom hashoa (a day of holocaust memorial) in the month of Nissan, a time that's supposed to be joyous for the Jewish people. So, you see that these atheists who violate Shabbos totally also disregard Jewish law by establishing a day of mourning in a joyous month and a day of festival on a halachic sad day.

We as observant Torah Jews totally ignore their anti-Torah alien ideas. We won't even stop when they sound this one minute siren on these days because they refuse to stop work on the holy day of Shabbos. A real Jew keeps on trucking and only stops for Shabbos not alien sirens.

PLEASE!!! Don't speak for me and other Torah Jews. We are zionists and do observe yom Hazicharon, etc. The nazis didn't distinguish, so why do you?

Also very interesting as the 3 weeks approachs. Sinat chimam, anyone? Care to remember and reflect on why we're fasting and why the horban occurred.

Zionists live in Israel.
Zionist wannabees live elsewhere.

Once you rationlize that living outside of Israel is not a problem, its no big quantum leap to rationalize throwing Jews out of their homes in Eretz Yisrael.

After all - you can halachisize anything, ie, I'm frum, live in America, no big deal. Gaza? Israel? security/military issue.
