As I read this NYTimes.com article, my heart broke. A 14-year-old young woman stands up against the Taliban by voicing her dreams to be a doctor, and two bullets are put in her head? If you read my last post about Saudi Arabia’s religious police and their “behavior modification” techniques against women, this is just another example of those techniques. In this example, Islam is not covering a woman’s anatomy but her brain. What is so threatening to Islam that women must be kept in the dark?
