On the one hand

I am a fervent believer that all national governments should be completely democratic, never autocratic. I also fervently believe that women should never be treated as subservient to men.


On the other hand

Never in the history of Islam has there ever been a democratic Muslim state, or one that treated women as equals. (Please don’t quote Turkey, which although almost entirely Muslim, is a secular state.)


I have more sense than to draw any conclusion about Islamophobia.
