Wow! I agree with a feminist –on one thing at least

The case of the Islamist German judge mentioned earlier is by now causing a scandal in Germany. Der Spiegel has interviewed Alice Schwarzer, a renowned German feminist on the topic. When asked if an independent judge shouldn’t be allowed to seek inspiration from the Quran, Schwarzer replied with refreshing clarity:
“A judge who bases verdicts on the Quran is acting on the basis of Sharia, not on the basis of the German constitution. Such a judge should have no place in a German court. “ (Source)
She was also appalled by the fact that a Muslim background is often seen as a mitigating circumstance in honour killings. Her remarks are a pleasant change from the usual multiculturalist kowtowing to any outrage committed within a minority culture. I never quite understood why western feminists are so subdued when it comes to Islamism. If the Catholic Church had ever come anywhere near in terms of sexual suppression they would have been up in arms within minutes.
