Wafa Sultan

A brave outspoken woman who fearlessly denounces Islam's greatest flaw: codified misogeny. Brought up in an Islamic country, she now lives in America and loves it to bits. Her attacks on Islam have of course meant that she has received the usual truck load of death threats. Here she is in action.
The point she makes in this clip is that the problem
is not just with the Wahabi or other
nutter Islamic groups but with the whole of Islam starting
with Mohamed himself. She goes on to praise
and urges us to defend what we in the West
take for granted. Like the freedom of
a woman alone to walk down the street, to
talk to a male neighbour or sit in Starbucks and
enjoy a coffee without being called a whore.
Strong and moving stuff!
