Islamophobia in the Classroom

Among the challenges she describes is the difficulty she had checking into a hotel as a single woman. Immediately, she blames a societal issue on Islam: “I couldn’t check myself into a hotel room in the 1990s,” she complained, “because thirteen hundred years earlier, a Meccan named Muhammad had trouble with his wives.”

Wow! Such an ignorant statement coming from a highly educated western professional is a shocker, to say the least. How could an experienced international journalist like Brooks, a graduate of two prestigious universities, jump to such a bizarre conclusion?  >>>>>

Sounds to me as if she has domestic issues of her own and her psychoanalyst may have had her regress to a time far earlier than her own years.  (My attempt at humor; no offense intended.)
