and you can buy these stamps ...
and you can buy this stamp portraying Maimonides, one of the leading founders of violent Judaic racism ...
and you can buy this stamp of "Jewish Refugees in Russia"...
and you can buy this stamp of a Jewish boy at the western wall of al-Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount ...
but you can't buy or even see this stamp of Handala, representing a Palestinian refugee boy ...
not anymore. Here's Zazzle's explanation:
The Handala stamp doesn't infringe on any "copyright, or other intellectual or proprietary right of a third party." Handala creator Naji al-Ali was assassinated in London more than 20 years ago and he created Handala and released it into the public domain to draw attention to the plight of Palestinian refugees and the crime of al-Nakba, he didn't create it to make money.
