Wafa Sultan Islam and Authority
One does not need to look to far to grasp in America that we as a people have a history of questioning authority. This is also part of the Jewish and Christian traditions. Sultan does describe an unflinching obedience to order enforced by violence. This is in the Koran and sadly in many Muslim societies. This is also why those who are secular in the Muslim world back Communism and its mindless authoritarianism. Islam has rules for everything and Communists want to control every aspect of a person's life outside the bedroom. In this case many secularists in the Muslim world merely exchange one form of tryany for another.
