The War Within by Amampour (CNN's "investigator)- moderate Islam's sour?

Reader comment on item: Recruiting Soldiers Against Radical Islam

Submitted by Ynna (Tchkah) (United States), Apr 4, 2007 at 19:57

A couple of days ago, the "honored" CNN "investigator". Amampour, presented a documentary called "the War Within".

The main point of the "war within" that the investigator wanted to show was Imams not letting women pray in the mosques, b/c they were women, thus showing the discrimination they suffer by their own kind.

However, among other points, a "moderated" Islamic woman,-I do not recall her name- that speaks on the Radio in UK, and also performs on stage as a humorist, considerably mocking about others, who simply do not understand that she is a standard and normal western civilized citizen, not a radical Moslem- an Islamist.

At a pub, on stage, mostly traditional British ones, found her so funny, as if engaging in a common empathy, feeling themselves so modern, and thus so superior (in my understanding), for sharing such a contemporary vision of our society's evolution…wow...She is "so funny" and those who think that "moderate" like her are terrorists instead, are fool (Again my interpretation).

Although The Islamic moderate woman, radio Speaker' body behavior and voice intonation showed otherwise, I gave her the benefit of doubt- calming down my "anima" and thus mocking my sensibility, for the benefit of doubt. Who am I ?

Couldn't be worse later on, when she states at one point:

"...There are 2 types of Muslims in UK, those who are moderate like me and those who are really passionate about our religion"...

(referring the last category to those Imams who not only call Jews filthy animals in their mosques, but also do not let women come in and pray in their mosques, reserved only for Islamic or better saying Islamists "machos"- discrimination against women).

In fact, they showed Radical Imams in their mosques- expelling women.

Looks to me that "This" "moderate one' portrayed as such at Amampour documentary, has a huge battle inside her- "the war within" this Islamic woman- begging for the acceptance of all – carries in her existence.

This was the " war within" Amampour did not address, or "forgot to address"-where and when Radical Islam already win by 2 x 1...for example, in this Islamic female "moderated" one's body- a fake moderate one in fact.
