What really burns my biscuits about the whole thing isn't what Michelle Malkin thinks someone's clothing choices may or may not mean - this is America & she's entitled to be a bleedin' moron. What I'm up in arms about is the fact that DD folded!!!

I mean, holey glazed doughnuts Batman! (snicker ) - does DD really need to sell doughnuts & coffee so badly that they can't afford to lose the brain donors who'd believe this drivel as customers? I would think not... but apparently stupid people buy a lot more breakfast pastries than smart people.

Okay . . . so . . . if Meghan McCain (daughter of John) wears a similar scarf, does that she is also an al Qaeda sympathiser?

“The kaffiyeh is a visual extension of our struggle, a way to be a thorn in the silence,” says Ahmad Habib, Iraqi refugee and a member of the Arab Cultural Resistance music group. “Everywhere, from the Arab world to Toronto, people dress up to paint the world with conformity and indifference. The kaffiyeh stands in the way of that.”

The transition of the kaffiyeh from the Middle Eastern version of a baseball cap to a symbol of solidarity came with the occupation of Palestinian land. The kaffiyeh became a symbol of national identity for Palestinians. From the ‘60s on, Palestine Liberation Organization officials and members, such Yasser Arafat, wore the kaffiyeh everywhere they went.

International coverage of the first intifada often showed pictures of Palestinian civilians throwing stones with kaffiyehs around their faces or necks. But afterward, the kaffiyeh was popular only amongst activists and Palestinian refugees.

During the second intifada in 2000, sympathy for Palestinians began to grow and the kaffiyeh became a way of displaying solidarity.

“Ideally, I want everyone to wear the kaffiyeh,” says Habib, “but if it’s just worn for the aesthetic value, without the spirit of resistance wrapped up in every thread, then they might as well not wear it at all, and if it becomes appropriated by commercial interests, then that’s even worse.”

I think I have that very scarf How ridiculous, practically everyone my age wears scarves like that. Fashion's to blame, not the terrorists.
