    The following link shows a speech by an Arab-American woman on Al Jazeerah.

    The replies to her speech are cut short, but that does not really matter.
    What is interesting is that this is a woman, 1)on Arab television, 2) without a Burrka, 3) speaking about secularism as the way forward and 4) while she's at it, she tears the point of view of fanatical Muslims to shreds.

    I raise these points to show that not the entire Muslim world is as backwards as most people on the board here wish to believe. It seems from the interview that Al Jazeerah is at least upholding the freedom of speech, which I applaud.

    Don't be an idiot. This is strictly for western consumption, so libs like you go "see, see, they're not ALLL theocratic".

    I might say, well maybe he has a point, if I didn’t have experience teaching

    several of the Muslim elite how to fly. They’re DUMB as ROCKS and VERY

    backwards! Believe me.

    Too bad she'll probably be torn to shreds, literally, after some Muslim man rapes her then another performs an "honor killing" on her.
    Secularism and Islam don't mix.
