The New York Times is a tad tone deaf.
For a few years now it has been educating me about the deep humiliation that Muslims experience when seen, or particularly photographed, when naked or nearly so. Remember Abu Gharab?
"The Holy Prophet Mohammad, peace and blessings be upon him, has said on the topic of modesty: 'Verily modesty and faith are related to each other; when one of them is taken away, the other also is taken away.'" (link)
So please look at today's front page. A few Muslims who work in the neighborhood confirmed to me this morning that this is deeply offensive. And the best part is that it's totally unnecessary to the story. (In the paper copy of the paper the photo is on page one)
"Satr is another important code to understand when considering the implications of the prison abuse scandal.... Muslims must keep their bodies from the navel to the knees covered in front of others. The only exception to this rule is one's spouse." (link)
