I hope Rania Mahmoud Yassin watches this video at YouTube or whereever, at least once. Disrespectful would be to say the least. This video is now out in the West and contributes to head shaking about highly emmotional, but also very ignorant and intolerant promoters of Islam. If she would shut up instead of talking like a machine gun, that would have been an interesting debate. As an atheist, I'd always like to hear how strongly religious people argue against atheism. What would the other host have answered to the comment -Can you prove that Superman doesn't exist? (A very good answer to the mail host's comment.)

Instead this women, who apparently is not a fundamentalist, gave one example helping people see why human rights have such a difficult time in most Islamic countries.

It's such a pity. Islam was once a progressive force, much more progressive than Christianity. This women shouldn't be a TV host. She is a disgrace and highly irrational. She hurts human rights and Muslims alike. Muslims more than any other groups suffer under this intolerance (or under ISIS). And I write that while Brussels is in a state of emergency.

I'd like to add: Muslims in the West express clear support to democracy and human rights when polled. Don't let such a highly emotional and irrational women (or ISIS) make you an enemy of Muslims has humans. Even though Boreme never lets you see any video showing moderate and reasonable Muslims. That's not the editorial line of Boreme.

A balanced and secular education is a small revolution which generates ideas - and in the words of Alan Moore's excellent graphic novel, V, "ideas are bulletproof".

Be careful about drawing any conclusions from this clip. It was published by MEMRI - look it up on wikipedia LINK - a pro-Israeli campaigning organisation.

Quote Juan Cole, a professor of Modern Middle East History at the University of Michigan, who states that MEMRI has a tendency to "cleverly cherry-pick the vast Arabic press, which serves 300 million people, for the most extreme and objectionable articles and editorials... On more than one occasion I have seen, say, a bigoted Arabic article translated by MEMRI and when I went to the source on the web, found that it was on the same op-ed page with other, moderate articles arguing for tolerance. These latter were not translated."
