Under the Black Blanket


The race to erase women

It's the Gordian knot that's confounded U.S. Presidents for a generation, but the path to peace in the Middle East is finally clear.
The Islamists who now control 70 percent of Egypt's newly "free" nation and their bitter enemies just to the East, the Israeli Orthodox, share a fundamental lifestyle igoal: they need women to disappear so they can focus on God.
The New York Times has a story today on the Israeli "woman problem" and you can read it here.
Common ground between bitter enemies, a bit of good news in grim times.
There might not be enough fabric in the world right now to swaddle and mummify the women the Islamists and their counterparts in Israel would like to erase, but the Chinese textile industry should be up to the task.
