SYRIAN ARAB WOMAN DOCTOR'S VOICE

Read the following from News Asia Weekly published in LA as under:-

Washington: A Syrian American Muslim woman doctor has recd several death threats after criticising in a television interview the Muslim Clerics, holy warriors and political leaders who she said had "distorted" the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad.

Dr.Wafa Sultan a 47 year old psychiatrist living outside Los Angeles, was interviewed on Al Jazeera Televisionabout three weeks ago. According to a report in the New York Times, she is being hailed as a "fresh voice of reason" and others as a "heretic". In the Interview she said that the World`s Muslims, whom she compares unfavourably with the Jews, have "descended into a vortex of self-pity and violence". What is happening today is "a battle between modernity and barbarism, which the forces of violent, reactionary Islam are destined to lose.

"I believe that our people are hostages to our own beliefs and teachings'

"Knowledge has released me from this backward thinking. Somebody has to help the Muslims from these wrong beliefs".

Speaking of the Holocaust, she said: "The Jews have come from the tragedy and forced the world to respect them, withtheir knowledge, not with their terror; with their work, not with their crying and yelling.

We have not seen a single Jew blow himself up in German restaurant, destroy a church, protest by killing people.

"Only the Muslims defend their beliefs by burning down churches, killing people and destroying embassies. This path will not yield any results. The Muslims must ask themselves what they can do for humankind, before they demand that humankind respect them".

She is now working on a book with titled "The Escape
