or that matter in any part of the world.(see feminists in USA) Absolute power corrupts absolutely ,there is no reason why women should be an exception! Of course women in the Middle East have it bad but it should be noted that freeing women from the consequences of their actions will be just as dangerous as dictatorial men.

It is Arab women who wholeheartedly participate in the abuse of their maids and servants,they look the other way when their husbands sexually expoit them. It is women who insist on FGM for their daughters, virginity tests, wedding night "bedsheet" tests and other barbarisms. Those who are consorts of powerful men are fully complicit in their economic exploitation.

Mrs Zinedine turned the Tunisian treasury into her personal bank account.Mrs Suha Arafat sits on billions of dollars that rightfully belong to the Palestinian people.Queen Rania has no comment on her husbands mafia style economic governance of Jordan. Ditto for Mrs Assad, except that her husbands imposes mafia governance in all ways.But you see they are so glamorous,photogenic and well educated..Lets invite them to Oprah,ask them to pose on Vogue and not ask too many awkward questions.God forbid we ruin a good copy with matters of actual import!

Lee Smith points out that Arab women are notorious for taunting and goading their men into violence.Umm Nidal is one bizarre example of this phenomena.

Arab women disprove the commonly believed dictum that victimhood=goodness.
