Nothing threatens women more than Shariah Islam — both abroad and at home. While "honor killings" average one a day in Turkey, such cases in which Muslim fathers kill their Westernized daughters are growing even in the U.S.

Yet the feminist movement remains pathetically silent about this very real threat to women.

Why is the left refusing to draw any political conclusions about the Islamic oppression of women? "In my view," says professor Phyllis Chesler, "Western academic feminists are so afraid of being condemned as 'racists' that this fear trumps their concern for women's rights in the Arab and Muslim world."

What's racist is holding Arab and Muslim countries to lower ethical standards. By continuing to ignore the brutal suppression of women in Islam, feminists are complicit in it.
