Law against anorexic models goes into effect

January 1, 2013

There are too many people that are naturally below a certain BMI. There needs to be loopholes in the system for doctor approved exceptions. I’m glad this is going in the right direction however. Straight men are always accused of hatred towards women because of the fashion industry, but the straight men don’t control the fashion industry. The fashion industry is dominated by gay men who don’t love women.

Models with body mass index below 18.5 may not be shown in Israeli media, on websites or go down catwalk at fashion shows.

Starting on Tuesday, female and male models who have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 18.5 may not be shown in the media or on Israeli websites or go down the catwalk at fashion shows.
The law, initiated by then-Kadima MK Rachel Adatto, aims to protect impressionable teens from eating disorders.
Every year, an average of 30 young adults and teens die of anorexia or bulimia.
The law, also sponsored by Likud-Beytenu MK Danny Danon and believed to be the first of its kind in the world, does make violations a criminal offense bearing a fine. But violators can be sued in court by interested citizens, including families whose relatives have suffered or died due to eating disorders encouraged by images of overly thin models.
While the media that publish or present illegal images are not liable, they will get a bad image for doing so; the company that produced the ad, ran the fashion show or used the overly skinny presenter can be taken to court. In addition, any advertisement made to look with Photoshop or other graphics programs as if the model has a BMI under 18.5 has to be labeled with the warning that the image was distorted. The warning must be clear and prominent, covering at least 7 percent of the ad space.
BMI is defined as an individual’s weight in kilos divided by the square of his or her height in meters. Would-be models in campaigns and fashion shows must first obtain and show written statements from their physician stating that their BMI – up to a maximum of three months ago – was above 18.5.
If not, they can not appear.
Adatto, a gynecologist by profession who is not likely to return to the Knesset because since she joined The Tzipi Livni Party and was placed in a low position on the list, said that on January 1, a “revolution against the anorexic model of beauty begins. Overly skinny models who look as if they eat a biscuit a day and then serve as a model for our children” will no longer be visible.
Every year, some 1,500 teenagers develop an eating disorder, and 5% of those suffering from anorexia die each year. The problem even effects the ultra-Orthodox community because some haredi men increasingly demand very-thin brides.
Adi Barkan, a veteran fashion photographer and model agent who “repented” and is in the Israel Center for the Change in Eating Habits and a prime advocate for Adatto’s bill, said: “We are all affected. We wear black, do [drastic] diets and are obsessive about our looks. The time has come for the end of the era of skeletons on billboards and sickly thinness all over. The time has come to think about ourselves and our children and take responsibility for what we show them. Too thin is not sexy.”
The Second Authority for Television and Radio, which regulates commercially operated television and radio broadcasts, has already issued instructions to its employees to observe the new law.

Hugo Boss ‘Sorry’ for Founder’s Nazi Past

(Getty Images)(Newser) After the end of World War II, Hugo Boss said he had supported the Nazis to keep the company he founded afloat. But the fashion firm has admitted that there was another reason: He was a big fan of the Nazis. Boss—who was Hitler’s favorite tailor and supplied the Nazis with uniforms from the party’s early days onward—”did not only join the party because it led to contracts for uniform production, but also because he was a follower of National Socialism,” writes the author of a history of the company during the Nazi years, which it commissioned itself, the BBC reports. Records unearthed by the author show that one of the company’s factories was staffed by 140 forced laborers kidnapped from Poland by the Gestapo, reports the Telegraph. The firm wishes to “express its profound regret to those who suffered harm or hardship at the factory run by Hugo Ferdinand Boss under National Socialist rule,” it says on its website. The company’s founder, who died in 1948, was tried and fined after the war for his links to the Nazis.

Free Palestine is CODE for KILL THE JEWS!

June 9, 2011

The ferocity of the purge in which they were subsequently purged was such that the word “purge” doesn’t really convey it. Imagine pigbreathed men wandering blindfolded through the crowd at a Coldplay concert, swinging chainsaws, flamethrowers and yetis about in a random but deadly fashion, and you’re getting close.

and yet a CNN Poll Shows Highest Support for Israel; Lowest for Palestinians in History

The Blind Accordion Player (Ben Shahn)

Those who survived were a red-eyed phalanx of psychos who snorted vodka, smoked trees, dammed rivers with human heads, played Poland like an accordion and parked their tanks on top of Hitler’s house. Not pretty, but more effective at getting rid of Nazis than Futurist poetry, innovative camera techniques and endless speccy speeches. via alfanalf.blogspot.com

CNN Poll Shows Highest Support for Israel; Lowest for Palestinians in History

June 5, 2011
According to a new CNN Poll Americans sympathize more with Israelis than Palestinians by 67 to 16%.
that dressed that way in a “Palestine”
is not the most advisable way to go about? 
And [the Pro Palestinian] fellow
just above would also be
very unhappy with that cleavage.

It’s the Coalition Of The Dumb
and all the usual suspects are here –
Mark Thomas,
ultra-Marxist alleged ‘comedian’,
anti-Semitic fake charity lefties War on Want,
together with a host of nonentities
from the music business,
and, ahem, Coldplay:


…The ferocity of the purge
in which they were subsequently
purged was such that the word “purge”

Imagine pigbreathed men

the crowd at a Coldplay concert,
swinging chainsaws, flamethrowers and yetis
about in a random but deadly fashion,
and you’re getting close.






Sympathy with Israel is up from 60% in 2009. While 65% says the U.S. should not take either side in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, 35% say the U.S. should take Israel’s side while just 1% favors backing the Palestinians.

Dictators’ Wives

March 9, 2011
Bashar Al-Assad’s wife, Asma…

During the last few weeks, much has been said about dictators in the Arab world, but not as much about their wives. All of them have been living, and still do, next to their husbands, and playing a role similar to that of some European dictators’ wives of the past, such as Elena Ceausescu, who, under her husband’s regime, became a major Romanian political figure and, to prop up her image, even pretended to have made new scientific discoveries.

Natalie Portman Condemns John Galliano’s Antisemitic Slurs

March 2, 2011

FASHION WORLD SHOW IT’S HATE OF JEWS AGAIN.

this guy has been hanging out with
Perez Hilton too much.
Cultural Fascism must be in style!
(and yes we do know Perez Hilton is hostile to Jews

and not just Christians… I followed his blog.  he is a bigot)

As someone who used to work in the fashion industry selling the advertising for the designers and industry I can tell you this is the tip of the iceberg. If you don’t believe me find a copy of LeBook or BlackBook open up the pages and call some designers, stylists or art directors at random. Fashion is not only French. Fashion has a very strong contingent in some of the most Anti-Semitic places on earth… such as Lebanon for example. In my case I was wronged by a Swedish company called Modern Holdings who balked on their promises and saw their Jewish consultant and representative as politically disposable, but this Swedish thinking is prevalent in the industry. Fashion in the end is not art. I repeat it is not art. Fashion is mercantile. Fashion is married to economics and revenue… and one doesn’t need to be creative to realize how a Jew fits into their bias. Fashion is full of merchants, trade and it’s origins are involved in a unique and exclusive thread in Jewish culture. Jewish culture will always be influenced by the garment industry which is one of the few places Jews were allowed to make an honest living. Jews were both the innovators and the victims. Many forget the Triangle factory fire was also the fashion industry for example: The lives of those Jewish women that had to jump out of hot windows similar to the WTC a century later is bound to cultural elitists and their bigotry that never stopped. When abusive labor conditions aimed at Jews ended a public relations war in the name of Anti-Zionism launched.


(VIDEO) John Galliano stating, “I love Hitler,” and, “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f**king gassed.” The clip was reportedly taken at La Perle, the bar where Galliano was arrested for assault and making anti-Semitic remarks last Thursday.

(NY TIMES) The actress Natalie Portman, who has an endorsement contract with Dior for its Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, has strongly condemned its chief designer, John Galliano, for anti-Semitic remarks after a video surfaced of Mr. Galliano appearing to deliver a tirade in a Paris bar

Progressives created an epidemic. the fashion world blusters with elitist politics of academia of Chomsky and Norman G. Finkelstein. Should we put our heads in the sand and pretend we don’t know where the hate comes from? Listen to what these people are talking about!

I can’t applaud Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman, the way everyone else is doing. She’s not exactly the “Proud Jews” she claims to be…. 

Portman–who was born in Israel and whose father is Israeli–still brags about her ongoing friendship with Jordanian Palestinian Queen Rania, an open anti-Semite and Jew-hater. In fact, Rania is so much of a Jew-hater that she repeatedly refused to have her dumb propaganda book printed in Hebrew.  Don’t do us any favors, Rania. The kids book, “The Sandwich Swap,” is supposedly about peace and understanding, but really just preaches tolerance for extremist Muslims, equating their extremism to a mere preference of peanut butter over jelly.  Yup, tell that to the ghosts of 9/11, no longer getting to custom order their PB&J.
