Re: “One marriage, under Allah

while orientalism needs to be called out whenever it sees things that aren't there, playing the sanctimonious native informant also has its drawbacks and opacities - worker ant, while on point on this calling, downplays religion too strongly in favor of class, and the film just doesn't support this - class and relition inform each other in complex ways, and religion is not merely an expression of class, as worker ant suggests - being from somewhere doesn't give one the monopoly on truth - having said that, americans don't really know how to talk about class in the US, so not surprisingly we miss it when we look abroad
