    I think its the same reason why liberals won't speak out about the way Muslim women are treated by Muslim men. The N.O.W. is exceddingly quiet about the mistreatment of American Muslim women. One can speculate which issues are more important the clamor to support ANY woman for any LIBERAL or Socialist political position, or to stay true to their proclamation to help the stuggle of ALL women including women from Islamic faiths.

    How do the Pakistanis (here in Lodi) really feel about terrorism? Why do they not speak out against it?

    We are living in dangerous times. Pakistan has had the atomic bomb since 1983. How many devices do they have? How will they be used? Are nuclear weapons in danger of being controlled by religious zealots? These and many questions bring anxiety and uncertainty to the middle east. Will the new ruling elite continue to allow The Northern territory to remain a hot bed of hatred of women and support of Al-Qaeda training camps?
