Dunkin has removed Rachael Ray wearing the kefiyeh in an advertisement. Considering the great work they do for the troops I am inclined to believe they were manipulated by a pro-jihadi asshat on the staff.
Good on DUNKIN! Three cheers for Dunkin! (I was missing my cuppa)

Dunkin' Donuts Consumer Response to Rachael Ray Advertisement
Thank you for taking the time to contact Dunkin' Donuts regarding your
concerns about the Rachael Ray advertisement. In the ad that you reference,
Rachael is wearing a black-and-white silk scarf with a paisley design that was purchased at a U.S. retail store. It was selected by the stylist for the advertising shoot.
Absolutely no symbolism was intended. However, given the possibility of
misperception, we will no longer use the commercial.
I bet the store the "stylist" shopped at was urban outfitters. *SPIT*
