Not that leftist Moonbats could tell the difference.
Muhammad was right:

Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, who is in Abu Dabi, wore a headscarf when she visited the Sheikh Zayed Mosque this morning out of respect for the customs, traditions and conventions of Islam, says Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal. The queen is on a two-day state visit to the United Arab Emirates.
“Not to have worn one during a visit to a mosque wasn’t an option. In that case, the invitation to visit to the mosque, one of the most important in the United Arab Emirates, would’ve had to have been refused,” explained Mr Rosenthal.
Geert Wilders: Â “Deplorable presentation” of the queen
Going to a mosque is not obligatory for the Queen of the Netherlands. Â The ‘invitation’ should have been refused. (Or does she oblige the Mohammedan headbangers to visit a church when they visit Holland?)
His comments come in response to criticism from the Freedom Party (PVV) about the clothing worn by Queen Beatrix and Crown Princess MÃ¡xima who, with her husband Prince Willem-Alexander, is part of the royal party visiting the UAE. The PVV had complained that, by wearing aÂ headscarf, the queenÂ was lending legitimacy to the oppression of women under Islam.
Mr Rosenthal pointed out that Queen Beatrix also adjusts the way she dresses when she visits synagogues and cathedrals.
‘Waste of time’
The democrat D66 party was quick to point out that PVV leader Geert Wilders himself wears a yarmulke when he visits the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. Green Left MP Tofik Dibi not only slammed Mr Wilders’ comments about the queen’s dress but also the responses to them as a waste of time.
Dutch News calls the headrags “traditional”
Sunday 08 January 2012
Queen Beatrix’s 50th state visit of her reign began on Sunday in Abu Dhabi with a visit to the biggest mosque in the United Arab Emirates.
The queen and princess Maxima both wore long gowns and covered their heads for the visit to the Sheikh Zayed grand mosque, the queen tucking a blue headscarf around her hat.
Geert Wilders, leader of the anti-Islam PVV, used the microblogging service Twitter to describe the queen’s appearance as ‘sad’ and asked why the government had not stopped this happening.
A spokesman for the state information service said the queen and Maxima covered their heads while the mosque to show respect for the UAE’s traditions. The queen always adapts to traditions in the countries she visits, the spokesman is quoted as saying by the Volkskrant.
