A company based in Israel designed these clever bags that aims to show our fear of the Arabic language
The bags are made by a company called Rock Paper Scissors Mafia and is based in Haifa. They produce these tote bags with the clever Arabic text ” This text has no other purpose than to spread terror in the hearts of those who are afraid of the Arabic language ”
Nader Al-Sarras noticed one of these bags while riding his local metro in Berlin, and took a picture
Nader posted that picture online and it soon became super viral spreading fast on Facebook and Twitter
Nader told Buzzfeed that he never expected the reaction his post got and that most comments were positive
The tote bag is handmade using materials like silk screen prints and comes in many different colors. It is very popular locally but they never expect the attention it got abroad.

A spokesman of the design company said that ” as Islamophobia becomes a big deal, many people connects the dots two quickly as the Arabic language is part of our culture “
