wow you must really have a negative image of muslims in the US to be that surprised to see muslims supporting women's rights haha
I'm from Morocco , it still has a long way to go and I still hear horrific things from some older people and ignorant assh*les but most people my age wouldn't dare question women's rights.
UndercoverManThat's great. I'd be more impressed if they were protesting violence and terrorism committed in the name of Islam or protesting in favor of gay rights. Come on, really now, while I applaud their jesture, it takes no guts to protest against domestic violence. There's really no story here. This is sort of like a story about a dog biting a man. What's the big story?
You should know that most muslims are against terrorism, and keep in mind that terrorists also attack muslims. There was a terrible terrorist attack in Casablanca in 2003 , that kiled 42 people, most of whom were moroccan muslims.
Now , homosexuality, that's another problem. It's terrible how little it is accepted by muslims and I think it will be a while before you see muslims marching for the legalization of gay marriage ( which is an absolute shame )
