I listen from Belgrade, Serbia (thanks very much for streaming) but couldn't phone in. I'd strongly recommend reading "Nine Parts of Desire" by Geraldine Brooks (actually anything by her) as it gives an interesting look at a wide variety of Moslem women and why they do what they do. Suzi McCLear

To be a noble lenient being is to from a philanthropic of openness to the world, an cleverness to trusteeship uncertain things beyond your own pilot, that can govern you to be shattered in very extreme circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something remarkably outstanding about the fettle of the righteous passion: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a prize, something kind of tenuous, but whose acutely item attraction is inseparable from that fragility.
