Worth a look and listen..

This gal is bang-on and if I may say so, has balls of steel. Undoubtedly and very unfortunately there are quite likely numerous fatwas calling for her death now.

We need more people like this.

The world is destined for horrible times if we don't think more like this brave woman. History has shown us that religion has been at the root of some of the most awful persecution and loss of life...and killing in the name of God (no matter who's God) can't continue for humankind to fulfill it's destiny.

How sad this woman's views won't be on the front page of every newspaper in the world today...

I have watched this about 10 times and find it to be the most fantastic and truthful speech I've ever heard or seen.

This lady is speaking from a judgmental, western, ethnocentric point of view that will not win over any Middle Eastern people to her side.

what an understanding of world politics. Hope a few muslims understand what she means but i know its difficult. A muslim is just too emotionless to think beyond his religion.

there are only two things that men fight over!
one is religion which is usually fashioned out of manipulating a set of circumstances to fit a plausible story that greedy charismatic men use to control and exploit the illiterate ignorant and destitute or desperate masses to suit their own ends
the other is greed they covet something someone else has and try to get it by fiar means or foul usually foul dressed up to be fair
thier is only one thing that all humans should do and worship aand that is the earth for without it we are nothing
without plants there is no oxygen no food no life
stop screwing with each other and start fixing the damn planet b4 it is too late
should have posted this 50 yeaars ago when the planet stood a chance because mankind has blown it now

Check this out:

And view the program on CNN if you can, particularly the end, where President Clinton sums up the well-known fact that so called "religious conflicts" are really political or, more fundamentally, economic, conflicts.

Evil, greedy, or subjugated and lost people often use religion as a cover to justify the violence they perpetrate as they prosecute their economic or political struggles.

how true everything she said is!! I wish she was speaking at the UN to all countries. She has more understanding and eloquence than any ambassador there. We should send this to everyone we know. God bless her.

It is insulting to not include at the very least this woman's name. All the MEMRItv clips include this kind of information but because this clip has been posted without any obvious clues as to when it was aired or where it's almost impossible for the average reader to find it. Please do your homework - this woman deserves to be known. If you really admire her that much you should show it by being respectful.

i am from the middle east from th most bautiful yet most corrupted country in this crazy middle east , where ppl translate religion as they wish and comite all sort of crimes in the name of God because they always give faulse interpreetation to each and very word of any holy book > words of God . Madam Sultan is a very couragious wise woman who unveil those liars fake "blievers"who keep using religion to do the worst acts ever . they use religion to kill, spread hatred, discrimination, terror, in the name of God they keep women living like slaves , in the name of God they kill, in the name of God many are living in poverty and injustice ....
Waffa Sultan hats off , i salute your courage and wish the arab men can be just a little bit couragous and man enough to worship God the true God of love , mercy , and compassion .
