Fareed Zakaria TV

In case you missed it, Fareed Zakaria (see the brief previous post about him on this blog) now has a rather nice-looking website and a TV program:

He has a program segment on Iran that is worth listening to.

One of his early programs was on Islam being anti-woman and "starred" Irshad Manji and Afifa Syeed:

It is good to see her make a clear distinction between the theory of Islam and the practice of culture, honor, etc. It seems like she's learning on the job; I had actually not noticed, till someone pointed it out on a mailing list I am on, that she's added a word to the title of her book: it is now "The Trouble with Islam Today". I checked out the website again. It now has:

http://www.muslim-refusenik.com/arabic.html

Interestingly, if you look at the Urdu page, the word "Aaj" (Today) has been added to the beginning of the title--in a different font.
