The Religious Policeman and Muslim-Refusenik

The Religious Policeman tells us what life is like in Saudi-Arabia, a country so vile it spawned, what, 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers. He is a rare voice of reason from the heartland of Wahabbi fundamentalism, and for that he risks “disappearing”. Although he has little to report that is hopeful, the fact that he exists gives me hope.

Likewise Irshad Manji who also faces death threats for her outspoken opinions even though she lives in Canada. At least her death threats don’t come from the government though.
