The Nakedness of Women is the Work of Man

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas - The Veiled Threat Continues
in response to reader comment: Salah Ali: At last an honest-to-goodness honest Muslim, YOU.

There are so many details in the Qur'an, Sharia and Moslem society. There are so many Moslems who cannot be stupid in embracing Islam. I do not consider women as (vulva) as you said or said Islam maintains. Women are mothers, sisters, daughters and darling wives. It is stupid indeed to think that Islam reduced women to her genital. No one believes that at all and I wonder of the profound ignorance of Islam some people have. I know so many Moslems who are so clean in heart and mind, so many Westerners too. But to generalization runs counter to common-sense. Islam is simple in its teachings and practices, and fine minds as Durant's,Kenneth Clark, Rodinson, Bernard Lewis, Henry Corbin, Massignon, Watt and many others in the West never make sweeping generalization in dealing with Islam. even bernard Lewis the Jewish theoritician stops short of making generalization. You make your own interpretations and believe them yourself.

As for the animal metaphor it was Shakespeare in Othello, a sort of early literary polemics, he means Othello topping Desdemona, the way I topped sara, Madeline, mary and Susan ages ago... When women do what they like, they replace their men with dogs... Why you passed by the debasement of women in Western pornography? I will come later
