- If defending Tariq Ramadan is regrettable, Western silence is worse.
- There are also those who blame Ramadan’s alleged victims. According to The New Yorker, “[Ayeri] is something of a heroine in the extreme-right circles of the fachosphère, where Islamophobia is a ticket of admission”. So, the “real” problem is “Islamophobia,” not the Muslim subjugation of women.

- “The blindness of the Anglo-Saxons on political Islam is frightening”. — Pascal Bruckner, French philosopher.
