What if the religious intolerance here is more about protecting a misogynist culture than religion. Should Israel be focusing on building battered Muslims women's shelters and specifically providing refuge for women seeking to escape and choose new directions in life. Instead of entering Palestinian areas seeking to kill everyone, should they be seeking to reach out to battered Muslim women looking for a new future. Whilst men can leave Palestine, the government makes it nearly impossible for women to leave, women are treated like chattel and slaves. How many women would abandon the fundamentalist Muslim lifestyle if truly given the opportunity to do so.
