Where do they get those token Arabs/Muslims to write? Colonial feminism in the New York Times

Notice that the term of reference and the standard for the article is the White Man:
"The reminder has led people in the West to realize that one of the great miseries plaguing much of the so-called Arab world, and the Muslim world more generally, is its sick relationship with women."   Oh, it must be a crisis if the West realized. Because the West is the ultimate arbiterer.  And who can be a better expert on women and their respect than, say, the US, where 23 women are killed every weak by a husband or boyfriend.  And here he warns the West that Muslim men are a threat to White women: "But today, with the latest influx of migrants from the Middle East and Africa, the pathological relationship that some Arab countries have with women is bursting onto the scene in Europe." And in the eye of this guy, even Orientalism was a good thing as it offered the East only respect and acceptance: "The West has long found comfort in exoticism, which exonerates differences. Orientalism has a way of normalizing cultural variations and of excusing any abuses".  Basically, let me summarize the article for you: can the White Man in the West please invade Arab countries because the Arab man could rape White Women in Europe?
