“I hope she is still alive.”
A reader sent me this note…
I have no idea who this woman is, but what she has to say is pretty riveting. I hope she is still alive.
Watch the whole thing. It’s fucking amazing.
UPDATE: Thanks to David in Wedgewood and, uh, an obscure little publication called The New York Times, we now know who the woman in the videotape is.
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.
So, yeah, she’s still alive—for now. But many in the “Islam means peace” crowd would like to see her dead.
