I'm still laughing

Over this picture. It seems that a Muslim lady showed up at one of CAIR's events (gasp!) without a veil (for those of you who don't know, a veil is traditional Muslim garb, and never ordered in the Quran.)
So, for the embarrased "progressive" Muslims, the obvious solution was to photo-shop a viel in. Genuis! (Check out the blown up version about halfway down the page -- it looks like maybe a junior CAIR member was called in to use magic-markers on it!) To quote Jihad Watch:

This is a small thing, of course. Just a bit of silliness. But coming from an organization that brands the truth about Islam "Islamophobia" and has never answered uncomfortable questions about its own loyalties and affiliations, it raises larger issues of trust. Why do the mainstream media and many government organizations still give CAIR a free pass as a neutral civil rights group when its commitment to the truth is so manifestly tenuous?
