A co worker sent this video to me, writing:
“The woman is Wafa Sultan, an Arab-American psychologist from Los Angeles. Watch it ASAP because it is not known how long the link will be active. There likely is already strong pressure to remove it.”
My co -worker and I do not not share the same political thought process. In fact, he typically emails me the sappy “proud to be an American” missives that are written by the mother’s of American Troops expounding on how glad they are to have their 18 year old sons and daughters fighting for our rights. Why in the world would you be happy to have your 18 year old fighting in Baghdad is beyond me. Anyway, so I typically do not take the time to look at what my co- worker sends.
I am not sure if the co- worker really understood the full depth and merit of Ms. Sultan" interview or fowarded it becasue:
“This is definitely a must see. Click on site below, sit back and watch this lady kick Muslim butt!!!!!!!”
Wafa Sultan gives an intelligent and educated slap at fundamental Jihad Islamic teachings. Stating that is a not clash of religions that we are seeing but that of opposite mentalities; one placed in the Middle Ages and one placed in the 21st century.
“Brother you can believe in stones as long as you don’t throw them at me” Is one of my favorite quotes from her interview with al-Jazeera.
I also do not think that my co-worker knew that Wafa Sultan is a prominant advocate for Muslim Women's rights...but I will definately give him the benefit of the doubt:)
I highly recommend taking the time to view the video.
This is a link to a Time Magazine Article that is also VERY informative.
