Where is the dismissal of religion in the article? I can't find it. I am not a Muslim, but I am well-acquainted with Islam and have great respect for it. I do not,however, believe we show respect for Islam by treating It as if it is not to be crticized as we would criticize any other group. What's more, this is an Arab (and presumably Muslim) woman who has written this article. Surely she can have views on life as she has known it. But beyond that she has given some pretty strong examples to support her argument.
