Laura Bush Visits Saudi Arabia

I was hoping there’d be something really funny about this story, but the best I can come up with is this photo. Of course, it’s not so funny when you know the two other ladies are breast cancer survivors. But still, the picture’s kind of funny.
I admire Mrs Bush for not wearing the hijab or any kind of head scarf. Right on!

    Since Mrs. Bush is neither Muslim nor Saudi, few could really expect her to wear a hijab. And man, what a diplomatic kerfuffle if they tried to make her!

  2. It turns out that she did wear a headscarf at some point during the trip, but I didn’t find out about it until later.

    What would have been the problem if she had worn one???
    When Muslim women go to the “west” they’re expected to “integrate” and are frowned on when they wear the headscarf…so following this logic…she should wear it when she goes “east”…..
