Discussing her new book, The Perils of Non-Violent Islamism (Telos Press), Elham Manea describes her experience of a tolerant Islam in Morocco, the traditionalism of Yemen, and her own encounter with Islamist indoctrination. She explores the nuanced relationship between the politics of Islamism and its selective reading of religious traditions, and she comments on current French policies against Islamist "separatism" and the upcoming referendum in Switzerland that would prohibit wearing the niqab. She ends with a report on a reform movement within Islam.
I spoke with Elham Manea about Islam, how extremism is more than just terrorism and about her latest book.

Arab women in Arab states and in Israel: How Arab countries see Israel from the gender prism? Is there misperception of Israel in this matter? What is the "dual discrimination syndrome" of women in the sharia that Arab Israeli women might be facing as well? How can Israel improve the sensitive area of family laws in regards to Arab Israeli women in order to advance its democracy?
