Question Rachael Ray a Terrorist?

What do you all think?

Rachael Ray ad pulled as pundit sees terror link Malkin claimed scarf similar to those worn by murderous Islamic extremists
MSNBC
updated 3:48 p.m. ET, Wed., May. 28, 2008

Dunkin' Donuts pulled a television spot featuring talk show host and Food Network personality Rachael Ray this weekend after a Fox news commentator associated it with terrorists.
In the ad, Ray is wearing a scarf that Michelle Malkin said in her nationally syndicated column resembled a kiffiyeh, Middle Eastern garb that is "popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos."
Dunkin's Senior Vice President for Communications Margie Myers issued a statement saying the scarf "was selected by a stylist for the advertising shoot. Absolutely no symbolism was intended.
"However, as of this past weekend, we are no longer using the online ad because the possibility of misperception detracted from its original intention to promote our iced coffee."
In her column, Malkin also noted that it could appear at times that actor Colin Farrell, rapper Kanye West and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean have been photographed in similar scarves that were "distinctive hate couture."

You want to detain her and conduct a full body cavity search, don't you?

Can't it simply be bad taste in scarfs [or is it scarves???]?
