Muslim's Wearing Things

Pictures of Muslim's Wearing Things may be a strange name for a blog, but it came about in response to comments by former NPR analyst Juan Williams during a discussion with Bill O'Reilly on the O'Reilly Factor:

"But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous."

The blog states that :

"Juan Williams, among other ignorant people, has an irrational fear of Muslims, and thinks you can identify them based on what they look like. Here I will post pictures of Muslims wearing all sorts of things in an attempt to refute that there is such a thing as "Muslim garb" or a Muslim look."

The blog is great fun - eye-catching, attractive, diverse and interesting. I like that it is a humurous response to something negative based on lack of knowledge.

You can visit the blog here and view a gallery of all of the pictures here.
