you know, i doubt many people in the middle east would ever make an assumption about your political allegiances if you wore a keffiyah. they are so commonplace. they may, however, assume you are some loud-mouthed foreigner if you make such a big deal about it.
and why pigeonhole it as a political symbol, when it has been a part of bedouin culture for centuries more? should we get mad at people for wearing tartan plaid or houndstooth and not knowing about the scottish highlands?
for what it's worth, i find the keffiyeh effortlessly chic and practical. beyond this, it seems like the private concern of the individual why they wear it.
