Journalist Nader Al-Sarras was on the Berlin U-bahn on Tuesday when he noticed someone carrying a rather interesting tote bag.
The Arabic read:
This text has no other purpose than to terrify those who are afraid of the Arabic language.
The bag tickled him, and he put a picture of it on Facebook.
The post went viral very quickly; the way in which it plays off how often anything anything written in Arabic is considered suspicious clearly struck a chord.
Thousands of people shared Al-Sarras's post, many asking where they could buy the bag for themselves.

It soon surfaced that it's the product of a Haifa-based design company called Rock Paper Scissors...
...In case you were wondering where to get your own.
