Her defense of the original tweet is basically that she isn’t specifically calling out Islam. She implies she was really referring to religious impact on behavior in general.
That makes zero sense to me, because she didn’t say “is Egypt a predominantly religious state?” or anything like that. She specifically called out Islam, implying it wasn’t necessarily religion in general, but Islam that fuels the sexual harassment issues.
Basically, her backtracking is actually contradictory to what her original tweet said.
