It’s more than that; it’s that we look the other way when shown women are enslaved in the Arab world ….. our media, our leftists excuse it, because it’s … part of their culture.
From an articulate author, a novel written of the history of the Arab world gives one insight to the world of an Arab woman.
This is from page 479 of “The Haj”, by Leon Uris. (I added the formatting, only to emphasize how short it is.)
Nada was extremely sure of herself.
- “You who weep for a yourself, now weep for me.
- I have never been allowed to draw a free breath in my entire life.
- My mind, my voice, my desires have always been locked inside a prison cell.
- I cannot walk into the gathering room of our house and speak.
- I can never, in my entire life, eat a meal there.
- I cannot walk any farther than the water well alone.
- I will never be able to read a real book.
- I am not permitted to sing or laugh when a male is near, not even my own brothers.
- I cannot touch a boy, even slightly.
- I am not pemitted to argue.
- I cannot disobey, even when I am right.
- I must not be allowed to learn.
- I can only do and say what other people allow me.
- I remember once in Tabah I saw a little Jewish girl waiting for the bus on the highway with her parents. She carried a doll and showed it to me. It was very pretty, but it could do nothing but open and shut its eyes and cry when it was hit on the back.
- I am that doll.”
