<nettime> clean wash

Full page add in belgian left liberal daily paper
de Morgen (the Morning), on Eastern Saturday:

a fist holding up a blood covered palestinian
shawl, against a black background,
with the question:

"How can Ariel wash this clean?"

(OK translation not optimal, but the Dutch/
Flemish sentence contains a double meaning:
both 'clean the wash' and 'set things straight'

I really thought I was dealing with a professional
subversive detergent add, but Israel's premier
Sharons first name is also Ariel and the add is
a call for peace from the Belgian NGO-world.
