Dalia Mogahed: “They don’t need you to save them from Islam. They need your respect.” (Part Two)

Mogahed did not become a chemical engineer, nor go into business, for both of which she trained, and either of which might have been taxing. Instead, she went into the business of being a Muslim. First, she polled Muslims for Gallup. Now she polls Muslims for her Muslim advocacy group (what she calls her “think tank”) and writes about Islam and Muslims, endlessly. Islam is her business. It’s what she thinks about, writes about, speaks about, defends and promotes.

My choices may not be her choices,

Mogahed is referring to the woman guilty of “micro-aggression” by taking hostile notice of her hijab.

which doesn’t threaten me at all. If she really cares about freedom for women, listening [sic] rather than demeaning women who don’t look like her would be a great start to real progress.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
