On a tour in Middle East raising breast cancer awareness, first lady put on a traditional hijab given to her by a Saudi doctor. As we know, based on rules in some countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia, women should cover their hair and body. No matter where are you from, Westerner or Easterner, Islam believer or atheist, women should cover their hair.
In Iran ayatollahs and muslim advocates say western women cover their hair in our country out of respect! which is not true, it is out of fear! Extremist Muslims in these countries was getting joy even from this little moment that Laura covered her hair!
