Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?
in response to reader comment: Islam does treat women as a commodity

Submitted by Ted (United States), Feb 13, 2011 at 03:07

Dear Dr Pipes: A lot of your readers are debating back-and-forth whether Islam or the west treats women better. I guess this issue will be decided within the next ten years when one night millions of Saudi women will tweet and plan go driving together the next morning.

Or one day when millions of Iranian women will discuss together on a Facebook page that chador is more for the mullahs and less for them. Or one evening when they together demand that if their testimony is not equal to that of a man, then they are not for the mullah much more.

Or, otherwise, millions of western women might decide that they would rather not drive, wear chador and hijab, and agree that their evidence is indeed worth much less.

Where will you place your bet?
