Right now I am on a plane to Australia on my way to speak at a conference about the failings of some Muslims to uphold the rights of women as the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) did. I am at once relieved and heartsick. I am relieved to leave an environment where tension follows me like bad B.O. simply because I am a Muslim. But I am also heartsick over the failings of some of my own country(wo)men to protect the rights of religious freedom as our forefathers would have us do.
