McLarney's book appears to be obfuscated antisemitism.

Reader comment on item: Jihad and the Professors

Submitted by Michael S (United States), Apr 13, 2016 at 10:46

Hello, Daniel

The link to Ellen B'Larney is a dead. end. I surfed up her book blurb on the Web, and got this:

"Challenging Western conceptions of Muslim women as being oppressed by Islam, Ellen McLarney shows how women used "soft force"—a women's jihad characterized by nonviolent protest—to oppose secular dictatorship and articulate a public sphere that was both Islamic and democratic."

Since B'Larney's book is aimed at women in Egypt, we can assume that the "secular dictatorship" she intends to tear down is the present, Israel-friendly government of that country. Whatever blarney she is pushing (which sounds like justifying wife-beating because the wife "freely allows" her husband to do it), her objective is clear and it is against the Jewish homeland.
