Bassam Kossa

Bassam Kossa makes the case for women's lib, and liberation in general, on Al-Jazeera television of all places. Kossa is Syrian actor who debates the issue with a nutball Islamist professor from Kuwait who rants on about not erasing his cultural values. Frankly, Islam could use a big eraser when it comes to promoting itself through terror and intimidation. It's amazing to watch the secular argument made so well in Qatar, deep in the Muslim world. Watch it here on the invaluable MEMRI.
