So who comes up with this stuff? According to al-Muhajabah, we are using women as interrogators with Arabs because our decision-makers believe Arab men can't handle it. Huh? So let's grant that Arab society remains highly male-dominated. In Morocco I saw female police officers. North Africa is more socially liberal than the Middle East, but even in Jordan and Syria you see women as professionals, giving orders to male employees in a bank and the like. This whole notion is just ridiculous.
