Ayaan Hirsi Ali on Islam

Ayaan Hirsi AliMichael Coren interviews Ayaan Hirsi Ali:


Ayaan Hirsi Ali Responds to Questions at Ohio University:


Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an outspoken defender of women’s rights in Islamic societies, was born in Mogadishu, Somalia. She escaped an arranged marriage by immigrating to the Netherlands in 1992 and served as a member of the Dutch parliament from 2003 to 2006. In parliament, she worked on furthering the integration of non-Western immigrants into Dutch society and defending the rights of women in Dutch Muslim society. In 2004, together with director Theo van Gogh, she made Submission, a film about the oppression of women in conservative Islamic cultures. The airing of the film on Dutch television resulted in the assassination of Mr. van Gogh by an Islamic extremist. At AEI, Ms. Hirsi Ali researches the relationship between the West and Islam, women’s rights in Islam, violence against women propagated by religious and cultural arguments, and Islam in Europe.

  1. How can one expect anything good about Islam from one who has left it,and when she was found guilty of lying in the Dutch court,to me she is nothing but a roller licker,and there is no shortage of neo nazi, willing to offer her,a confused person.

    • Wikipedia – “Hirsi Ali arrived in the Netherlands in 1992. There is some lack of clarity about the events leading up to her arrival, and she has admitted to telling lies in her application for asylum to enhance her chances of staying in the Netherlands. These lies have raised doubts about other elements of her biography that lack documentary or circumstantial evidence.[20] Hirsi Ali states that in 1992 her father arranged to marry her to a distant cousin. She says that she objected to this both on general grounds (she states that she dreaded being forced to submit to a stranger, someone with “the Holy Book on his side” who could force himself on her sexually),[16] and on specific objections to this particular cousin, saying that he was a “bigot” and an “idiot”.[21]

      It is not disputed that in 1992 she travelled from Kenya to visit her family in Düsseldorf and Bonn, Germany. It was planned that she would join her husband in Canada after obtaining a visa while in Germany. Members of her family have disputed the story of her forced marriage.[22] According to Hirsi Ali, she spent her time in Germany frantically trying to devise a way to escape her unwanted marriage. Ultimately she decided that she would claim to want to visit a relative in the Netherlands, but once she had arrived, seek help from that relative and claim asylum.[23]”

      I am inclined to believe Ayaan over her brothers who said she was lying. Her wisdom and clarity on Islam speaks for itself.
