Obama camp bans wearing green clothing during tour.?

Middel East experts are puzzled by the campaign’s announcement.
Mohamad Bazzi, a professor of journalism at New York University and former Middle East bureau chief for Newsday, called the instruction “very strange"
“I guess green is the ‘Hamas color’ — but it’s also the color of Islam!” Bazzi said in an email from Beirut. “That’s one way for the Obama campaign to alienate 1.4 billion Muslims worldwide.” Green is not identified with Hamas other than its a color on their flag. Do you think Muslims will be offended-or is this Obama’s calculation to counter the chrages he is muslim at heart?
