What?!? Are you kidding me. Does that catholic cross now indicate that all priets are pedophiles? Its a muslim religious symbol, minus the paisley of course. I thought there was a freedom of religion in these united states. So when I see a muslim walking down the street completely covered from head to toe, I can tell them to remove it because it reminds me of terrorism and jihad? That maybe the dumbest thing I have heard in a while. Ummm Ms. Malkin, when will you start demending that all catholics remove their crosses before leaving the house. Shame on you DD, you should first and foremost stick up for the rights of everyone, not bow to malkin's religious views.

Oh, for Pete's sake... it's a SCARF. Also called a SHAWL. And it has various other names depending on the language and country.

It's the simplest manufactured garment in human history -- a square piece of cloth that can be folded and worn in a myriad of ways. It's been worn as a head covering, body wrap, and neck covering/decoration for centuries by millions and millions of people.

It is NOT a symbol of Islamic Terrorism!!!

Sheesh... and no wonder everyone thinks Americans are idiots.

It's Michelle Malkin, people. What else do you expect from a once up-and-coming ultra-conservative voice to a has-been blogger-journalist?

In other news, however, Malkin's comrades are now smearing WWII vets and downplaying the significance of Nazi slave labor camps.

It's too bad that people have to get together to protest such a riduculous thing. Maybe if they were a wee bit smarter they would get together and protest something a little bit more important, maybe like the ridiculous gas prices, or the healthcare problem this country is having, but no, we'll focus on something stupid, like a scarf. Gotta love this country!

As much as most muslims want you to believe, the headscarf they wear is not religious. It is a cultural thing. My cousin's husband is a muslim from Pakistan and this is what he told me. His daughter from Pakistan never wore one until after 9/11/01 so I feel there is a statement there.

I haven't seen the picture but whatever Rachel Ray was wearing, it doesn't even sound like there was any statement.
