Radical Islam's intolerance of criticism is on display in Italy, where a member of parliament is openly describing life under a barrage of death threats.
Souad Sbai's indiscretions include her failure to wear a veil in public and her staunch advocacy of women's rights. Three North African men have been charged with threatening Sbai, who was elected last year after running the Association of Moroccan Women in Italy. But the threats continue. According to a Reuters report:
Since entering politics, the threats have increased dramatically, she says, blaming radical imams who she believes are telling their followers, wrongly, that she insults Islam.
"I've never talked about Islam," she said. "I've spoken about Muslims who treat women badly. And this is a crime?"
Apparently, it is to some.
