A potential martyr for the moderate cause?

Reader comment on item: Affirmative Action in Beauty Contests?

Submitted by Logus (United States), May 18, 2010 at 14:44

I don't know what the young lady's beliefs and daily observances may be, but if she professes to be a Muslim, then I would hope that Mr. Trump is willing to provide security for her in perpetuity. I wouldn't be surprised that some Islamist might take it upon themselves to injure or kill Miss Fakih out of religious duty. I certainly hope that doesn't occur, but I wonder if she sees herself as a pioneer in moderating and liberalizing Islam? If so, is she up to the challenge, considering that Islam has already had its Reformation - towards fundamentalism.
