Pants suit Obama gets to stroll around the mosque all scarfed up. If it happened after her dreaded handshake with Indonesia’s pious information minister, Tifatul Sembiring, then perhaps it’s a sop to the Indonesian state. That’s how the Mussulman likes it, dhimmis gotta show that respect. KGS

US first lady dons headscarf at Indonesian mosque 

US first lady Michelle Obama donned a headscarf on a visit to an mosque in Indonesia on Wednesday, not a requirement for a non-Muslim but a sign of the Obamas’ efforts to show respect for the Islamic world. Wearing a beige headscarf adorned with gold beads and a flowing chartreuse trouser suit, the first lady toured Jakarta’s Istiqlal Mosque, Southeast Asia’s largest, while on a short state visit to the world’s most populous Muslim country.

US President Barack Obama had been expected to visit another major religious site during his Asian tour, the Sikh Golden Temple in India, but media reports said the visit was canceled after aides balked at the idea of the president wearing a scarf or skullcap required at the site.
