Can you say jihad on her ass? Sad part is, she will be on a hit list because she is rational.

Probably,too bad she is one of the few "natives" that has a clue as to what we are trying to do over there.

Telling the truth with put her in an early grave, but perhaps she got through to many who may be wavering between violence and peace.

That's a breath of fresh air from that side of the world. She has brass balls for saying that on al-jazeera. And the guy KNEW she was right when he didn't say a damn word after she was done.

I wonder if she's still alive.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I hope she stays safe, but somehow I doubt she will.

Powerful stuff that rational thinking is....too bad stupidity and ignorance is soooo much easier to learn.



roy d...yes, someone from the south just cracked on the ignorant.
Link Posted: 3/20/2006 6:49:21 AM EDT
Wow! I mean... wow!

That takes some courage. She didn't stand up for humanity on some western media outlet (who would never have let her on in the first place). She's making her stand on Al-Jazeera, in the belly of the beast.

I know she says she doesn't believe in God, but I do. And I pray that He keeps her safe to spread her message of peace. His ways can be mysterious.

Reminds me of an Al-Jaeera version of Hannity and Colmes... Put somebody on TV that is so liberal that one can easily discredit them by calling them a Heretic. It doesn't surprise me that they used a woman to be the Ultra-leftwing whack-job either. It make it all that much easier for the muslim idiots to say "what does she know... first of all she's a woman, second of all she's a Heretic!"

it's nice to see that the tricks of News agencies doesn't change, no matter what side you're on.

Dang, I hope she's got her affairs in order and plenty of life insurance for her loved ones' benefit.

You know, guys, never a day passes here that I don't find at least a couple or three blanket condemnations here of all of us gals as somehow defective. I'd like to know how many of those who post such stereotypical criticisms have the big brass equipment to do what this frail flower of the middleeast is doing, knowing as she must, the consequences.

Damn she's my new hero.

And BTW she is not blowing leftist socialist smoke either. Nor is she blowing right wing propaganda. I'm an agnostic/athiest but I would fight for your right to worship how you want. You should have the freedom to believe in what you want to believe. It is not Right or Left. That is the essance of the 1st ammendment. Just because she is a secular humanist doesn't mean she is a socialist.

She was illustrating the barbaric violent nature of the Islamic religion. That is ALL. And she has some good points. It has been a few hundred years since main stream Christianity was violent. Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists etc. don't protest with suicide bombers, and murders. All the religions have some problems with them, but these are minor and insignificant with the violent problems of the Islamic religion. And she has some damn good points about how western culture and other religions have contributed positively to human kind and contrasting that with what Islam has contributed.

I have read some of the Quarn when studying different religions and it was enough to make me see that it is one of the most messed up religions I have come across.

THE NEW YORK TIMES profiles Wafa Sultan:


Three weeks ago, Dr. Wafa Sultan was a largely unknown Syrian-American psychiatrist living outside Los Angeles, nursing a deep anger and despair about her fellow Muslims.

Today, thanks to an unusually blunt and provocative interview on Al Jazeera television on Feb. 21, she is an international sensation, hailed as a fresh voice of reason by some, and by others as a heretic and infidel who deserves to die.

In the interview, which has been viewed on the Internet more than a million times and has reached the e-mail of hundreds of thousands around the world, Dr. Sultan bitterly criticized the Muslim clerics, holy warriors and political leaders who she believes have distorted the teachings of Muhammad and the Koran for 14 centuries.

She said the world's Muslims, whom she compares unfavorably with the Jews, have descended into a vortex of self-pity and violence.

Dr. Sultan said the world was not witnessing a clash of religions or cultures, but a battle between modernity and barbarism, a battle that the forces of violent, reactionary Islam are destined to lose.

In response, clerics throughout the Muslim world have condemned her, and her telephone answering machine has filled with dark threats. But Islamic reformers have praised her for saying out loud, in Arabic and on the most widely seen television network in the Arab world, what few Muslims dare to say even in private.

Here's a link - www.nytimes.com/2006/03/11/international/middleeast/11sultan.html?ex=1299733200&en=d13886daba5e586f&ei=5090&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss

Whether she is an muslim, athiest, lesbian or whatever, her speech has the ring of truth and logic. She made good points and I commend her for speaking out for the voice of reason.

Thanks for the two cents. Everyone seems to be praising her but somehow, somewhere , someone has to try to turn it against others in a gender based argument to belittle and ridicule some who would be stereotyped into a certain category. Like someone with an agenda would do. I'm sorry what is your complaint again with the posts in this thread?
