US chain drops 'terror scarf' ad
03-Jun-2008 (2 comments)

The US chain Dunkin' Donuts has pulled an advert following complaints that the scarf worn by a celebrity chef offered symbolic support for Islamic extremism. The online advert for iced coffee featured the well-known US television chef Rachael Ray. She was wearing a black-and-white checked scarf around her neck that resembled a traditional Arab keffiyeh. This fashion choice incensed at least one prominent conservative blogger, who said it evoked extremist videos. The blogger, Michelle Malkin, called the garment "a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos".

These crazies need to get a life, or education on the realities of life in the Middle East. Getting to know who really is the "Terrorist" and who is "terrorised".

Good luck with that, I guess, with all the brain washing that the U.S. Media, controlled by AIPAC, does for the people of this country.
