Muhammad was a feminist

Those are words you'll probably never read at LGF, but they're the very ones with which Irshad Manji kicks off a rather interesting interview with al-Arabiya. (And no, we don't know why the latter webpage has a title tag that reads "Catholic New Times." Nor do we know why she's appropriated the term "refusenik," which originally referred to Soviet Jews who were refused exit visas by the Communist régime. Canada has never persecuted her for her religion, as far as we can tell.)

Incidentally, we've been waiting for her to share her feelings about the possible inclusion of shari'a principles in the Iraqi constitution. Thus far -- and we've been watching her site for a while now -- bupkes.
