Muslims: Is This Offensive?

I found this Google Top 100 video, Girls Gone Wild Baghdad, to be an original idea. It shows women peeling away portions of their traditional Muslims coverings - wrists, ankles, faces - and censors them with the same blockouts usually associated with breasts and pubic area. It's not porn, but it's not exactly funny either. Just original.

But is it offensive to any Muslims? I encourage anyone and everyone to share this video with any Muslims you know in the world and ask them how they feel about it. The answer could very well increase our understanding of the various Islamic and Islam-influenced cultures. Let's turn this video into a conversation piece.
