I will be visiting Israel and Palestine next month. Among the places I plan to visit are Bethlehem and Arafat's tomb in Ramallah. I plan to wear a T-shirt with Arafat's picture on it only during my visit to his tomb.

Will I be able to purchase such attire somewhere in Ramallah?

    please mention your current passport-issuing country, religious and organizational affiliations. Depending on those info, the answers will vary very widely.

  • yep. Do you think that in Israel a Jewish middle-age person from USA will be treated same as a practicing young muslim from Egypt?

    @kmonsoor: Will OP's nationality, religion, etc, really affect whether they are able to buy a shirt? I can understand it might make a difference as to how they are treated when they wear it, but that's not what the question is about. Commented Mar 5, 2017 at 18:26

Yasser Arafat Museum

NPR Article

An image of his face — with his classic scruffy facial hair and headdress — now adorns hats and sweatshirts in the museum gift shop.


I have seen such shirts for sale in the Muslim Quater of the Old City of Jerusalem, but I have never been to Ramallah as I am a young religious Jew.
