Agreed. This thread is also a rare insight to the minds of radical militant, authoratrian Islamists (i.e. vasil and his side kick Ummadula with stockholm syndrom). You only need to read the entire thread and deduce for yourself.
Where are the moderators on this site??

What's ironic is that none of these so-called true muslims ever try to take their "real" religion back from the hands of those who disgrace their peaceful religion. I have never seen a muslim group to actually stand up to the militant Islamist and teach them the "real" Islam.
Would the real Islam stand up for once??

This woman is vile and deranged. Hope Egyptian women stop her from gaining more power.

Excellent analysis of this fascistic ideology.
What a horrible woman. Khomeini used the same kind of deception in the beginning of the revolution. He told women that Hejab is not going to be mandatory but when he killed all the progressive leaders and democratic oppositions, he quickly ordered Hejab was compulsory and women were arrested and jailed for not wearing their hejab correctly. Their faces and lips were cut by the likes of this woman in broad daylight....I wish Egyptian study what happened to Iranians before they give more power to these brutal beasts.

Couldn't agree more Dianna. Those who've never been free neither understand nor value freedom of choice and thinking for one-self. They are taught not to think for themselves nor decide their own destiny; hence, their abysmal state of oppression.

Excellent rebuttle. That is the crux of the whole argument: Freedom of Choice. and given the freedom to access information outside of the state-sponsored or clergy-sponsored propaganda.
You also have to accept all the Abrahamic religions are violent and muslims need to go though the enlightenment period too. You can't change what was written in books but you can change people.
Hejab or scarves are the least of ME's women problems. Don't let the Islamists propagandist radical militants wahabii to derail the conversation.
bluescat47 from HF"" The prevailing liberal multiculturalism is, unfortunately, often reluctant to judge non-western religions and cultures by western standards, or any standards for that matter. As a result Islam often gets a free and uncritical pass on women’s rights. The Koran is exclusively concerned with male prerogatives and rights and male control over wives and household. It extols male patriarchy and dominion in every realm, which is hardly surprising given the time period and place where Islam originated. And wherever fundamental Islam such as the Salafist and Wahhabi versions are practiced (Saudi Arabia), the more misogynist the culture, especially compared to the more relaxed, Islamic syncretism prevailing in places such as Indonesia. Tribal codes and culture, such as Pashtunwali in Pakistan, are even more misogynist than the prevailing Sharia codes in that country. Nevertheless, the Koran is at its core a set of doctrines and rules that are simply incompatible with the exercise of women’s freedom and autonomy, regardless of the blather coming out of the Islamic Brotherhood in Egypt. The UN report on the Middle East of a few years back stated the obvious, that the failure of these countries to address women’s rights will result in permanent underdevelopment and stagnation.""
leonard merril : Christianity had many of the same attitudes toward women before the Reformation. It wasn't until Science replaced Dogma and the Bible was perceived to be Metaphorical instead of Literal that women were allowed to be educated and considered equal ...a battle still being fought in some Western Cultures. It wasn't until the twentieth century that women were allowed to vote in these United States so we are not wholly innocent of discrimination either. Islam is in some ways like Christianity in its earliest incarnations ...It is a younger faith untempered by time and moderation that comes with age and literacy and learning. It was only three hundred some odd years ago we were killing women in Salem Mass. for being witches. Put it into perspective."

MarcEdward -- a (1) The difference is not "they have Islam while we have Christianity", it's that we no longer take religion that seriously. Nobody believes that when they take communion, that wafer turns into Jesus-meat in their stomach. We are lucky that at some point our ancestors went through the enlightenment, the folks in Egypt the writer talks about have not. We're not "better", we're just lucky, and it's worth noting a huge swath of Americans would like to go back to pre-enlightenment ways (looking at YOU Southern Baptists!) (2) It's the difference between the modern world and the traditional world. In the USA, the traditional world is represented by the human-dinosaur hybrids who want kids taught creationism and scream about gay rights and want women to not have reproductive health care. If you removed Islam from history, the same primitive, traditional peoples would still be restricting women's equality for some other reason (perhaps by taking the bible literally)
Engaging in their own form of Stockholm Syndrome, most Muslim women publicly defend the very laws that enslave them. . They actually justify the evil misogynistic rules of Islam and say it is for the betterment of the Muslim women. Many Muslims claim that “Islam honors women,” just as they claim that Islam is a “Religion of Peace.” The truth however, is just the opposite. Islam does not honor women, but rather, holds their very lives in absolute bondage. There is no age limit for marriage of girls under Sharia. A man can pay a dowry and sign a marriage contract with the parents of a toddler girl and consummate the marriage at age 9 just because their and they think in doing that, they are just following the Sunnah. According to the Shariah, the adulterer will be stoned to death, but not many people are aware that this rule applies mostly for women, because men are allowed to have sex with their sex slaves and concubines. Even if a man and woman are caught having sex and four witnesses are also present, the punishment for women is digging up a hole and inserting her in up to her chest and then stoning her to death, whereas a man is just stoned while he is standing. And if he manages to escape, he is lucky, but a woman is not even allowed a chance to escape.
