I happened to think of this song from the past. I liked Billy Joel's music then and still do. This one is not my favorite however. I wonder what would have happened to him if he'd launched this song with references to Muslim girls hiding in hijabs instead of Catholic girls. Who knew it had a backstory?

Although the song is lustful (and I hate Billy Joel) the reason he didn't reference Muslim girls in hijabs is because they ain't attractive to white dudes.

After 6-7 months in the desert, that becomes less true.

"Muslim girls hiding in hijabs" are not any different visually than Catholic girls hiding in veils.

The difference is that the tradition of veiling outside the home slowly died off in the West after the Industrial Revolution.

There's something highly attractive about a face framed by cloth and the barrier of language. Especially in the middle east. Can't speak to Afghanistan, but some of the most beautiful women I've ever seen in my life were in Iraq. Age was never kind to their mothers, though.
