Argument: Tolerance of head scarves exercises tolerance/compassion
Amitai Etzioni. "Let Them Wear Scarves". Huffington Post. April 10, 2008 - "Headscarves are a test: a test of Western tolerance for legitimate differences among cultures and societies and within them. True, when wearing them is forced on women, as is the case in Iran and Saudi Arabia, they should be opposed like other such coercive dictates."
Courtney E. Martin. "A head scarf is not just a scarf". Christian Science Monitor. February 25, 2008 - "We will not, ultimately, be protected by laws or bombs. We will only be protected by the continued fight against dehumanization in all its myriad forms, and the renewed effort to focus on developing emotional awareness and empathy in our children and in ourselves. A flag is not just a flag. A scarf is not just a scarf. And a human heart, well it is most certainly not just an organ. It is our fiercest weapon against annihilation, and our most inspired ally toward creating a more peaceful world."
