Would wearing a keffiyeh as a scarf be offensive?

I am a guy.

It is a red and white one from Kuwait.

I would wear it like a scarf.

I am also an American.

And yes, I am a Christian.

Will I offend people?

I do not want to get jumped or knifed or something.

Thank you.

    so what? ITS SYMBOLIC SPEECH..WHICH IS IN THE FIRST AMENDMENT, PROTECTING YOURE RIGHT TO WEAR WHAT YOU LIKE!!!

    I dont wanna call u a punk but u are being a punk.....think of how many girls go out in hijab(CLEAR SYMBOL OF ISLAM) who could get attacked at any second

    and here u are wearing some scarf(for style) scared of offending rednecks.

    Why don't you worry about offending God and be Muslim

    Who cares if you want to have the style of the arabs of the blacks whites spanish people or chinese

    what difference does it even make, seriously?

    if i got offended it wouldn't be because you wear a kafeya, it would be because you rejected the last messenger of God
