    It's Barbie in a burkha: World-famous doll gets a makeover to go under the hammer for 50th anniversary

    One of the world's most famous children's toys, Barbie, has been given a makeover - wearing a burkha.

    Wearing the traditional Islamic dress, the iconic doll is going undercover for a charity auction in connection with Sotheby's for Save The Children.

    More than 500 Barbies went on show yesterday at the Salone dei Cinquecento, in Florence, Italy.

    I wonder if any Obama supporters will go a shooting spree at a Military base because they are offended by any "immoral treatment" that the Muslim Barbie gets if someone looks under her Burkha?

    Perhaps this will lead to an increase in anorexia in Islamic countries.
