A lady speaks her mind

I assume this was on Aljazeera. She seems very brave or desperate. As often seems to be the case in the middle east she slightly over plays her hand at the end by accusing Islam of being the only religion to attack other religions forcefully. Unfortunately historically I can think of lots of examples that don't include Islam at all.

However, its encouraging that this sort of open debate goes on in the Arab media.

I shoudl add that this clip comes from MemriTV - which is I think an Israeli outfit.

Any ideas as to who she is?

The video has a name at the start - Wafa Sultan, an Arab-American. Looking on the Memri site she has been on Al-Jazeera before.

Whilst your heart sinks each time Al-Jazeera put on the latest terrorist video there must be some hope if open discussion like this takes place.
