Politico Friday: Wafa Sultan

I saw this lady interviewed on CNN recently. She drew a lot of attention a month ago for a debate she had with a Muslim cleric on Al-Jazeera essentially about moderate Islam vs. fundamentalist Islam. Granted this clip only shows the arguments she made in the debate, some of her points transcend all religions as they deal with fundamentalism.

Why America doesn't have these sort of relevant discussions on television rather than the Sean Hannity's of the world, shark attacks, and runaway brides is disappointing, but it's good to know the discussions are taking place somewhere.

Hat tip to C.E. for the video link.

Many talking heads on the right like to mention that the muslims don't speak out against the fundamentalists, and that the current problems are the fault of those that do not speak out against fundamentalist actions. Well, they need to listen up!
Impressive for al Jazeera
