Marry – or Else

Sep 18, 2011 – Michelle Goldberg

Logo The Daily BeastForced weddings and ‘honor’ killings aren’t just a developing-world issue. New research shows how it happens in England and the United States.

When Jasvinder Sanghera turned 14, she knew her time had come. As the sixth of seven daughters in a conservative Sikh family, growing up in the English industrial city of Derby, Sanghera had watched her parents pull her older sisters out of school, one by one, and send them to India to marry complete strangers—often men who abused them. The British educational system never questioned the girls’ long absences and ultimate disappearances. Then, one day, when Sanghera came home from school, her mother presented her with a photograph of a man. Sanghera was told that she’d been promised to him when she was just 8 years old. “I was the one who said, ‘No, I want to finish school, Mum. I just want to get an education,’” Sanghera said recently.

Venstreorienteret debat fra 16. marts 2009 – ikke overdrevent interessant:

Why We Need a Liberal Israel Lobby at the 92nd Street Y

The position of the mainstream Israel lobby, AIPAC, conflicts with the views and interests of many American Jews. Debate over American policy in the Middle East and the best way to end the Israeli-Palestinian crisis is broadening. Should military solutions or diplomatic ones be favored? Does the traditional Israel lobby speak for all, or even most, American Jews? How would a liberal Israel lobby approach relations with Iran and Syria and the creation of a viable Palestinian state?

Jane Eisner is editor of The Forward.

Jeremy Ben-Ami is the executive director of J Street, an organization that promotes meaningful American leadership to end the Arab-Israeli and Palestinian-Israel conflicts peacefully and diplomatically.

Steve Gutow is an activist, attorney, rabbi and advocate for social justice. He is the executive director of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs. He founded the National Jewish Democratic Council and serves as chair of the Save Darfur Coalition.

Michelle Goldberg is the author of the New York Times bestseller Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism, about the religious right and American politics and the forthcoming The Means of Reproduction: Sex, Power and The Future of the World.

Eric Alterman is a distinguished professor of English at Brooklyn College, City University of New York and a professor of journalism at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. He is a columnist for The Nation and the author of numerous books, including Why We’re Liberals: A Political Handbook to Post-Bush America.

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
