Witnesses say a Jordanian woman ripped off her enveloping black cloak and veil to reveal a traditional long dress that was nearly as enveloping and punched and kicked into submission three young men who had been verbally harassing her.
The woman was singing the lyrics to a popular local song, titled "patience has limits". The crowd cheered her on :)
UPDATE - HD Miller is back at long last! and comments on the story with background on the author of the song, Umm Kalthoum.
