Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a genuine hero. I bought her latest book on Amazon a couple of weeks ago after seeing her on Bill O'Reilly.

She is a women with a superior intellect who had the misfortune of being born in a culture of stupidity.

Thankfully using her brain, she found a way out and using her unbelievable courage she is trying to do something about this disgusting phenomenon known as Islam.

"Ayaan Hirsi Ali is at it again"

Snouck Huronje writes:

"In an interview with a clueless Glenn Beck on CNN Ayaan said:

"ALI: I don`t have a problem with an Islamic Sharia or Islamic thinker society. What I have a problem is that is that Islamic thinker society depends -- has a front face saying we want to debate and we want to go achieve our dream through a dialogue. And on the other side they are supporting terrorists and threatening people, calling everyone who wants to debate with them Islamophobes and racists. That`s what I have a problem with."

Sharia in the West is okay, as long as it is advanced peacefully."


This women is poison and contemptuous of Western civilization.

Perhaps you should stick to watching David Letterman. I think he is more your speed.

What the woman is saying is that Muslims are two faced and are our enemies. She escaped to the west. There is a fatwa on her for making a film showing the dark side of Islam. Theo Van Gogh was murdered for this effort with her.

Regarding Sharia Law. I cannot fathom that she endorses it .. perhaps you imagined that part.

What's your point in trashing this woman. Have you read her books? No? I didn't think so.

I'll tell you who is poison and contemptuous of Western Civilization ... Leftists!

You can find them all over university campuses, in the NDP and the Liberal Party of Canada also throughout the Democratic party in the USA. Do I need to mention those disgusting fools in Europe who pander to anyone who hates America.

Give yourself a shake man.

DJ, what planet are you from? Have you even read her two latest books namely The Caged Virgin and Infidel? I thought not.

Ayann Hirshi Ali is a self confessed atheist so why would she believe in sharia law which is "allah's law". If she does not believe in allah, then how could she believe in allah's or shariah law. Is that reasoning a little too deep for you?

For your information, just to save you a little effort, her work is based on her struggle to help Muslim women who are systemic VICTIMS of sharia law.

She also doesn't believe in the cult of multiculturalism which "Thinker" muslims are using to advance their "racist" agenda against the west.

You really need to do better research or go to Amazon and actually order her book and READ it.

It may provide just a little more insight than your quick google search of this Euroweenie's website, followed by a quick cut and paste- that you are trying to pass off as an informed opinion.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is an enemy of the West.

Lawrence Auster writes;

"Last September Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somalian-Dutch feminist leftist parliamentarian and target of jihadist assassination threats, showed her true leftist colors by seeking to have a small Christian Dutch party outlawed because it opposes homosexual “marriage” and abortion. But Ali is not stopping at trying to ban political parties in her adopted country. Now, according to the Brussels Journal, Ali has told the Belgian authorities that they should ban the country’s largest party, the “Islamophobic” Vlaams Belang. In an interview with the Antwerp newspaper Gazet van Antwerpen (1 February), she said why she regards the VB as a dangerous party:

“I would ban the VB because it hardly differs from the Hofstad group [a Jihadist terror network in the Netherlands, involved in the assassination of Theo van Gogh]. Though the VB members have not committed any violent crimes yet, they are just postponing them and waiting until they have an absolute majority. On many issues they have exactly the same opinions as the Muslim extremists: on the position of women, on the suppression of gays, on abortion. This way of thinking will lead straight to genocide.”

So, enough of this business about Hirsi Ali’s courage in the face of Islamic death threats, which requires us to treat her as our hero. Her denunciation of a leading conservative European political party as Nazi-like shows that she is as much of an enemy to the West as she is to traditionalist Islam. Anti-Islamists who make Ali their hero are deluding themselves and weakening the West."

"Vlaams Belang (English: Flemish Interest) is a political party in Belgium that supports Flemish independence and strict limits on immigration, including the deportation of immigrants who fail to integrate."

Ali lied about her identity in order to obtain asylum in the Netherlands. In Holland she was an illegal immigrant and a perjurer. This woman is obviously loyal to no country, not even to the one that has sheltered her from Islamist fanatics both in her own country and in the Netherlands. She broke the law to get where she is now, before playing the race card to be saved from the consequences of her own actions.

Read the Beck transcript. She has no problem with Sharia as long as it is advanced peacefully. She is no friend of conservatives.

A part of Lawrence Auster's manifest:


That the doctrines of sharia and jihad being totally incompatible with the Constitution and laws of the United States and of the several states, and with our most fundamental customs, institutions, and liberties, the advocacy and promotion of these doctrines is deemed not to be protected speech or a protected exercise of religion under the First Amendment of the Constitution;

That advocacy of the Islamic doctrines of jihad and sharia is tantamount to sedition and ought to be expressly proscribed in law;

That any person who espouses, promotes, formulates, or apologizes for these doctrines is committing sedition against the United States and against the state wherein he resides;

That adherence to the doctrines of jihad and sharia, even in the absence of open advocacy of same, is incompatible with adherence to the Constitution, laws, liberty, and sovereignty of the United States;

That with the exception of immediate family members, diplomatic personnel, and temporary visitors for business and other prescribed legitimate purposes, all immigration into the United States of persons known or determined to be followers of the Islamic religion, whatever the person’s nationality or country of residence, shall cease;

That with the exception of diplomatic personnel and temporary visitors for business and other prescribed legitimate purposes, no person who advocates or adheres to the doctrines of jihad and sharia shall be permitted to enter the United States as a temporary visitor;

That any legal resident alien who advocates, or who adheres to, or who on investigation can be reasonably suspected of adhering to, the doctrines of sharia and jihad shall be deprived of his resident status and removed from the United States;

That any legal resident alien who espouses, or promotes the right of Muslims peacefully to espouse, the institutionalization of sharia in the United States shall be deprived of his resident status and removed from the United States;

That any naturalized citizen who advocates, or who adheres to, or who on investigation can be reasonably suspected of adhering to, the doctrines of sharia and jihad shall be deprived of his citizenship and removed from the United States;

That any natural born citizen of the United States, descended of Muslims born abroad, who espouses, promotes, formulates, or apologizes for the doctrines of sharia and jihad shall lose his citizenship and be removed from the United States.

That any mosque, Islamic center, or Islamic school in the United States that promotes, or disseminates any literature promoting, or hosts sermons or classes promoting, the doctrines of sharia and jihad shall be closed.

That the United States shall encourage the voluntary departure of Muslim legal immigrants and their descendants by offering them $______ in a one-time fee to return to their native land and never to seek to return. The federal government will assure that departing Muslims will receive a fair market price for their real property, investments, and other property that they must sell prior to leaving the United States. To facilitate the acceptance by the respective Muslim governments of their returning emigrants and ancestral sons and daughters, the United States may also consider paying those governments a one-time fee for each person who relocates from the U.S. back to his respective native or ancestral land.

We tolerate Leftists here in Canada. I may not agree with their policies on abortion and gay marriage, I do not like socialists generally, but they are mild mannered compared to what the Islamic hoards are up to.

Her cause against islamic repression and their religious jihad insanity are where I find common ground with Ms. Ali. I can disagree with her on other issues once the West and Israel have subdued the terrorists. That will take some time I am told.

When someone calls for the downfall of a political party that is well ... political and is normal. Political parties often call for the downfall of one another. Many Canadians want to see the Parti Quebecois disbanded since they don't represent the views of anyone outside Quebec. So what? I would like to see Jack Layton and his dippers set adrift in a leaky boat on the
Arctic sea. That makes me no friend of Liberals ... your argument is narrow and self-centered .. there are bigger fish to fry than issues around gays and abortion.

Lighten up and get some perspective the big picture. Ms. Ali is a hero with some views that you and I may disagree with, but I will tolerate her differing views to find the more important common ground we share.

That is the adult thing to do ... if you prefer to sit in a corner, sucking your thumb over the gays and abortionites while trashing this brave woman, then enjoy the sucking.

Sounds to me that if you have power you would be a tad harsh on those with whom you disagree ... what kind of person does that? Let me name one or two. Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, Joseph Stalin .. I could go on, but I think you get the message.

I am a right-leaning person, not a right-wing radial Christian whack-job ... Are you?

And by the way, Lawrence Auster's manifest can only serve to continue the Jihad. The best way to end this conflict is through assimilation.

As long as you keep your enemy out in the cold, you will have an enemy waiting for you ... out in the cold. That means you will need to stay indoors forever.

That is the mentality of the LA street gang.

Of course, you don't get to whoop ass and wave a victory flag with this method, but over the long term, it will make for a more peaceful sane world.

DJ I haer what you are saying and I know Ayann is quite staunch and even radical in her secularism but one does have to understand that life is a journey and give her time...she will see that some of her positions were silly when she looks back..

And as other say, look at the bigger picture...the woman is brave and see's the grave danger that Islam poses to the Free World...I also detest just about everything the left stands for...but we have to make priorities and pick our battles....

Islam is the great battle....

Ayaan is quite the warrioress.

People, (not unlike DJ perhaps), get their knickers in a twist, when they see a female being strong, when in fact they are probably busy hidding from whom they criticize, like a woman hidden behind a full length black veil.

Shame on her for appearing at Indhimmigo.

Has everyone already forgotten that Indigo banned the Western Standard issue that included the Muslim cartoons?

Ali should not lend her name to a company that caved to Muslim extremism, not even in the face of an actual threat, but only an anticipatd one.

Posted by: Joan Tintor | 2007-02-26 11:38:00 AM


We may be able to email her and remind her to discuss the matter with Indhimigo people ;-)

Posted by: Winston | 2007-02-26 11:43:11 AM


Ayaan is wasting her time, is she speaks only to people such as ourselves, who are in agreement with her. In order to best do what she does best, her time is best spent speaking with people who are uninformed, disinformed, and misinformed. So, it is completely appropriate that she speak with the people who label us Dhimmis.

Posted by: Lady | 2007-02-26 2:23:59 PM

If the West had depended on females being strong, we'd still be living in caves.

Posted by: DJ | 2007-02-26 3:26:03 PM

That's why there's Irish Spring!
It's strong enough for a man, but made for a woman.

Finally someone who speaks with rationality. Ms. Ali is a clear thinker, which is rare these days. I disagree with most of what she stands for but commend her for her poise, intelligence, and bravery in what she says.
