Jewlicious posted on Urban Outfitter's accessory du jour: an anti-war woven headdress, otherwise known as a Keffiyeh, a scarf that is also popular among Arab terrorists. Hence the controversy. The store has pulled the scarf from their U.S. stores and site, but you can still buy the shmata on their European site.

Our Muslim friend, Nadeem, over at KABOBfest had this to say about the scarves:

Lightweight and oversized, this woven scarf can be worn a million ways, all year long!

"But Nadeem, black and white checkers clash with my bright orange Versace messenger bag!" Don't fret my young a la mode fraternity brother, the "Anti-War Woven Scarf" also comes in crap brown, booger green, period-stain red, and homosexual blue! Yay!!

Call me a crazy kaffiya wearing A-rab, but I've always had my suspicions about all those lesbian hippies and upper middle-class twats walking around with black and white scarves ever-so-gently draped around their coco-buttery smooth necks.

Honestly, from a fashion standpoint, modesty aside, I just don't get their popularity. Then again, I've never been much of a scarf gal.
