Perhaps Ms. Eltahawy could comment on bigot Benjamin Netanyahu's characterization of Arab pro-democracy movements as "anti-democratic" and "anti-Israel". Netanyahu's racist line has been parroted by obedient neo-cons in the US.

Will Mr. Lehrer risk raising this question given the hysterical anti-Arabism in the US and New York.

Listening to this interview, I just keep thinking over and over, "What a woman!" Your guest is an amazingly strong and courageous person. She has been through a lot, and she is obviously unbowed.
