establish their own schools if the oppressed feel that is necessary to
combat and counteract their oppression ... It is no accident that this
reactionary and racist anti-Muslim measure is being promoted by French
imperialism now. <<

Very well put Jose. Recently the Sunday "Age" newspaper in Melbourne ran a
feature by a feminist philosopher explaining in erudite fashion that "Islam

Catholicism as currently practiced, but I bet the editors aren't soliciting
articles about that!
