Well it's nice to see that level headed people can be heard over there. Not that it will make a difference though...



Though I'm pretty sure I can guess what he would have said, I would have liked to hear more of the newscaster's thoughts.

Their language sounds kinda neat sometimes.

That is one well edumacated woman. There is definitely a price tag on her head now, unfortunately.

She is obviously an educated and well informed woman.....and now in mortal danger for her life = (

But she had good advice....and it can apply to Muslims, Jews, and Christians.

There is a small (but quiet) educated middle class in many middle eastern countries who live in the shadows, hoping the madness will end. Hoping the illitirate mob that has high-jacked Islam will just go away.

I listened a second time, it's actually quite an uplifting and encouraging message.

very brave of her to speak out

She knows she put her life at risk, as impressive to me as a soldier in battle .

Very, very good message. Very brave of her to speak out as well. We don't all have to agree, but just don't kill each other because you disagree. Seems pretty simple.

she comes with a very refreshing viewpoint on things.

Did she live her life over in the middle east any? If she did spend some time there, it would add a lot of credibility to middle-easterners who might listen to know she grew up and lived there. Being an arab-american hurts her credibility, sadly =(

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wafa_Sultan

Sultan revealed to the Times that she is working on a book to be called The Escaped Prisoner: When God Is a Monster, and says she was shocked into secularism by the 1979 atrocities committed by the Muslim Brotherhood against innocent Syrian people, including the machine-gun assassination of her professor in her classroom in front of her eyes at the University of Aleppo where she was a medical student. "They shot hundreds of bullets into him, shouting, 'God is great!' " she said. "At that point, I lost my trust in their god and began to question all our teachings. It was the turning point of my life, and it has led me to this present point. I had to leave. I had to look for another god."

Great video. She is a breath of fresh air with respect to some of the ridiculous shit going on in that part of the world. It's too bad that her views are probably not well received over there.

Wow! That was impressive, and well spoken. I particularly like the way the other guy shut the hell up. He realized that he could not compete, no doubt...

WOW! Those are wise words, I really liked the end part about asking what they can contribute before demanding respect from humankind. LOL at the guy on the left being a total wiener, but she got her point across.

Very very brave woman. She's risking her life as surely as the soldiers on the battlefield, if not more so since she's stated her case so publicly. I wish there were more people like that

Her comparisson of what happened to the Jews and what they did against the Germans was great. Too bad Muslims would HATE to hear that they were compared to Jews, and not even care if the comparission was right .
