Really? he artcle actually cofirmed the opposite is true:

"It's a story about just one mosque," Nix explains. "We don't claim to be telling a story [about] the entire region. But at least for the girls and women in Houda's mosque, it's a place for them to go, in a way that's comfortable for their parents. And they're also driven to learn more about their religion, and Houda offers an environment that's very organized, very warm and inclusive and inviting."

...

"Muslims themselves have deprived women of everything, even the right to learn, teach and to enter the mosque," she says firmly. "This is ignorance, which has nothing to do with religion."

Should the title be "Her Wishful Eyes... vs those Ignorant Others'"?

Nothing to no with religion, which religion is it you mean, could it be the religion of your imagination. That we Muslims have offended by the dedication demanded by virtue transcended from the metaphysical now proven dominant over all illusion ever imagined.
And your imagination is, about to be
confronted by the fowl disgusting exposure of betrayal, in its most wretched form. To be the traitor within a family's midst, disproportionate to what has ever been evident in reality before.
And the publican of darkness the pope, who governed the toothless fat orge to demolish me with fifth, so he could inherit the intellect of my self, to service his ambition to be God, the swine that I see I see in you.
Of course I could be wrong you might be with his offside, but I've got a personal grievance against the archbishop as well.
Roll out your grievances and I'll roll out mine.
Trouble is with wealthy people and countries, they solve their problems by
paying people off, take Dominique Strauss
Kahn he solved his problem the other day with 6 million $ he'd be a man of your ilk for sure.

The above by Rtloder is an obvious poor rambling translation from Arabic.

I agree with Rusty. It is an expose of how Islam has dis-empowered women.
"Muslims themselves have deprived women of everything, even the right to learn, teach and to enter the mosque," she says firmly. "This is ignorance, which has nothing to do with religion."

In order to try and be an "equal" to a male Muslim, to perhaps their brother, they pathetically memorise the Quaran.

This is very sad and exposes the weaknesses inherent in Islam for the world to see.

I fear her life will be in danger.

Islam, a sham.

In your ignorance, you and the other idiot
prefer to forget there is a war going on.
This is a pro Islam, pro government article your derelict of reason, as you call yourself animal against Islam, certainly a fitting title, you cannot manipulate existence to be the fungus of your thought.

Your misinterpretation is a conundrum to life although easily explained by your implication everything can be my imagined wife. Well this is one article you won't have intercourse with.

The article is pro Islam and pro Government. You like insults, try this, the
Archbishop is as useful to a baby as a dog with a tit coming from its nose.

This is meant to be a pro-Islam article where these poor creatures have been used by the government, but it has back-fired in that almost anyone can see through the trickery.

"In order to try and be an "equal" to a male Muslim, to perhaps their brother, they pathetically memorise the Quaran."

but they will never be equal under the thumb screws of Islam.

Which religion was the author referring to? but you're 100% correct, it is a religion she imagined, she even imagined that she is the one who got it right about that religion.

The Syrian woman preacher who has been functioning under that present regime for 30 years, and now supervised religious study in other parts of Damascus said.

You are free in your choices, free in your way of thinking, free in everything.

The Light in Her Eyes documentary includes, TV clips of ultra conservative male clerics protesting against women's participation in public. These are the people she is referring to when she makes the statement you quoted, these are the people we are fighting, and obviously so is she.
They are introverted and soon they be dead and knowing they made a mistake.

The Queen of England sends a message to Syria, how do you want your children, barbecued, baked or fried, Syria sends a reply. Whatever you'll get yours the very same way.

Syrian women are too pretty to be empowered. They can not only take your heart out, they can take you all out of you through just their most pretty looks in the world.

Syriana is the prettiest thing
She is winter, summer, spring
And her looks got all the power
See her face in every flower

See her eyes in stars above
Syriana is most powered love
She is power, she is thunder
She's fairy, you surrender

She's fairy stepped out of cloud
Powerless yes is all the crowd
She got power and most might
She's got beauty might, so allright

She's powerful, takes out your heart
And she's power right from start
No one can empower her yes
Cause you through looks she does possess

It bring a tear to my eye blocking sound of bomb from my ear, and when she say hello to me one day, I think it was the mocking bird all a glow. That, not even ending when home we go, after the show. Calling my name to take my place in paradise. Why you call your own name someone then said to me, are you dreaming? No, is Syrian woman enchanting in violation of your religion, are you confused, isn't that the question next on my qualification ,? No because fairy stepped from cloud.

The fairy stepped out of the cloud
I wanna take her away from crowd
Away from crowd, Syriana yes
Only my heart to possess

Syriana is so pretty, sweet
Stepped out of the cloud discreet
That is cloud you call just love
Stars in the sky say from above

Each flower got Syriana's face
Angels languish for embrace
And she's got her pair of eyes
Brighter than the summer skies

Out of cloud she steps so grand
Fairy she is we understand
Syriana fairy takes my heart
Belong to her just right from start

Syriana, just how sweet you are
Away from you must keep that war
Peace for you must ever long
Peace to Syriana does belong

Stepped out of cloud Syriana's face
Wish and want her for embrace
Stepped out of cloud, she is in sight
Syriana fairy is just delight

Syriana stepped out of the cloud
Prettiest thing,yet not she's proud
Prettiest thing you'll ever know
Stepped out of cloud, she's fairy so

Stepped out of cloud, my heart to take
My heart wish Syriana will never break
Stepped out of cloud for all to see
Syriana is fairy, yes is she

Peace man you could be disallusion calling on me, I know she not proud, but how can that be, elite contemporary holding aloft my my feet, now not able to make contact with ground, come on, must be she put a spell on me, my intellect gone haywire, my calculation is now crazy, only yesterday I was sitting outside a wombats burrow, listening to his serenade of snoring, nothing indiscreet there, but when he woke up I gave him 3$ to buy a hot meal, in the middle of summer, is it summer peace man
or is it spring has only just begun, does darkness really mean night.?
