Photos: Fashion model's poster at store causes uproar on West Bank

It's not often that model Bar Refaeli gets a cold reception. But when a black-and-white poster of the smiling Israeli beauty went up last week in the West Bank city of Ramallah, it became a target of Palestinian anger because of the message that accompanied her picture: "Fox: Coming Soon."

Fox is a popular Israeli clothing chain, but the model has appeared in public relations campaigns by the Israeli Foreign Ministry and frequently talks up her Israeli identity, matters not lost on Palestinian social media critics. -- AP
