Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But this makes her even more attractive to neocons. An apostate Ay-rab! Why, even Arabs think their fellow Arabs are such dangerous brutes, they need to be exterminated at every turn! She is going to be the darling of the Malkin/Sullivan/O'Reilly/Friedman set!

Of course, "she could be killed for that alone." But you could look at this another way: isn't her stand evidence that at least some Arab politicians/thinkers are brave enough to risk death in the struggle for rights most Europeans (and Americans) take for granted?

That was my point: it seems that all we ever hear coming out of Europe these days is support for the neocon notion that (all) Arabs/Muslims, not (just) the fundamentalists, are the new "Communists."
