The following link shows a speech by an Arab-American woman on Al Jazeerah. http://dump.geenstijl.nl/mediabase/2472/bc444e89/index.html 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.
