As usual a most helpful post from you which helps to clarify the issues. I have 
on hold a book ed. Joel Beinin, Political Islam. Berkeley: University of 
California Press, 1997. So I'll figure out what to sell today to purchase it.  
I would indeed like to know more about the differences between  Shi'i 
fundamentalist and Wahhibi attitudes towards modern women. The Iraqi Ba'th 
party of course has had an even different policy, but since the war I believe 
that percentage of women in Iraqi universities has fallen from 50 or above 
percent to less than 15%, though I will need to check this. Thank you much for 
raising fundamental questions. I hope you understand why we would all miss you 
as moderator.
