Give me a break!!! Yeah, Rachel Ray, the poster girl for the jihad. Puleeze. DD should have told Malkin and her ilk to take their business elsewhere. It's only a scarf for goodness sake. Sheesh.

If you guys don't think there are attempts to make a statement by dressing celebrities with a kaffiyeh then you are blind to what is going on. I don't mean to suggest that either Dunkin Donuts or Rachael Ray were trying to make a statement, but it is not too far fetched to believe the stylist could have had an agenda.

Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, it happens, look at what happened to Ricky Martin, http://edition.cnn.com/2005/SHOWBIZ/07/25/sho... . He later said, ""I had no idea that the kaffiyeh scarf presented to me contained language referring to Jerusalem, and I apologize to anyone who might think I was endorsing its message," after he learned the scarf said, in Arabic, "Jerusalem Is Ours."

She must be supporting the terrorists... Just look at that fashionable scarf. Can't you picture Osama Bin Laden wearing that same scarf as he orders dinner from Rachel Ray on the set of her cooking show!!!!! Some people need to get a life.

This is about one of the most retarded things I've heard in a long time... people nowadays seek any excuse to be offended and to read more into what things really are. Get a friggin' life!

Go ahead and laugh. You won't be laughing when Homeland Security exposes the evil plot to kill americans with jelly donuts and decaf. Why do you think so many foreigners work or own dunkin donuts? Wake up and smell the coffee. Time to make the donuts my a--!

So it is a "sybmol" is it? Well as George Carlin says, "I leave symbols for the symbol-minded".

Coming this fall to fashion runways worldwide, stylish white satin pointed hoods and cloaks, which in no way represent anything evil, just an amazing coincidence.

Don't forget to where it to your next garden party alongside your new "Bar-b-que", which, in another amazing coincidence, is shaped liked a buring cross. Be sure to utilize the safety strap to secure your steaks, again, merely a coincidence that it is tied into a knot just like a hangman's noose.

Good thing symbols don't mean anything.

Did you check out the poll that accompanies this article? It asks if you're offended by the advertisement, and 59.2% of the responders said "YES, IT SUPPORTS TERRORISM." Yep, some people just look for things to cause offense. Shheeeez!

It's a Shemagh scarf. These are sold on Law Enforcement/Military sites and US troops use them in the Middle East.

So ban them for the US public only??

Can you say paranoid? This Malkin chick just became a target like that wench Ann Coulter. Good Grief! People need to grow up and act like the adults they claim to be.

Herein lies another example of political correctness run amok this is a scarf anyone giving it more meaning than that is in need of therapy as whoever they are are paranoid beyond description. So in protest I will go out of my way to buy Dunkin Donut products and to blazes to any one who is offended. by the way I am a Viet Nam vet so my patriotism is not an issue.
