Letter of recommendation

To whom it may concern
re: Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Christopher DeMuth (President of the AEI) has confirmed in a letter that recent events in the Netherlands will not affect the appointment. On May 16 he stated:
Dear Ayaan:

I am writing to offer you an appointment as Resident Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. My colleagues and I have reviewed the research proposal you sent to me last week. We are confident that your work at AEI could make important contributions to urgent issues of politics and social understanding—in particular, to furthering the reconciliation of Muslim teachings with the ideals of individual freedom and responsibility and the “open society.”

Fine, the research idea has been approved by the team.

We appreciate that your views have been controversial and are likely to remain so; we believe that controversies such as these, when conducted in a spirit of civility and reasoned inquiry, are essential to intellectual progress, and are to be welcomed rather than feared.

Yep, the church also did not burn the books of disbelievers but put them on the index to be studied to invent the contra arguments and dismantel the undesired way of thinking.
Recently opened files at Vatican reveiled it almost put Harriet Baker Stones hut of uncle Tom on the black list of forbidden books and never did so with Adolph Hitler´s Mein Kampf.

In your application and in our recent conversations, you envisioned joining AEI in the autumn.
I understand that subsequent political developments in Holland may lead you to wish to accelerate the date of your appointment. If that is the case, I will be happy to work with you to arrange a starting date that accommodates your new circumstances. Let me add that I have been deeply angered by the unfair and partisan attacks that have been leveled against you and have admired your courage and forthrightness in the face of this hounding.

It is indeed a unfair political attack partly due to the next election art. 23 issue about the State funding of non secular schools. The VVD will lose votes to the CDA on this.

My colleagues and I are looking forward to welcoming you to AEI, and to America.

Yours truly,

Christopher DeMuth

Ayaan on Dutch TV may 11 via Uitzending Gemist

After Dutch TV Zembla 11 May 20.25 de heilige Ayaan or the Saint Ayaan with "untrueness in her flight tale" and "the mysteries of HirsiAli, known for her controversial opinion" view via : TV Portal Uitzending Gemist

Stung by the attacks, Hirsi Ali has made available several family letters that support accounts of her life that are now being questioned. Defending her account, Hirsi Ali made available a letter she received from Kenya, from her sister Haweya, in August 1992, after her arrival in a Dutch refugee camp. "Your husband in Germany is looking for you, and the whole search is being coordinated by father here. Be warned."

Hirsi Ali, underlining the duress facing her, agreed to release an unpublished letter. It was her father's curse, the last letter she said she received from him.
The Curse "may Allah punish you" is not as heavy as Gabriel told Azarel "may
the Lord judge you". Amen does not refer to the "he who has no name" but is used
as let it be so. Still some Djinn has taken her seat away!

In January 1993, after she had written to ask for his forgiveness for disobeying him, running away and refusing the husband imposed on her, she also said that she needed his blessing.

"Dear deceitful Fox," her father replied, "you do not need me and I do not need you. I just invoked Allah to disgrace you as you have disgraced me. Amen! This is the last message you will have received from me, as your letter was the last message I was to accept from you. Go to Hell! and the Devil be with you. May Allah punish you for your deception. Amen! Yours, The Fool."

Asylum law Expert Loes Vellenga-van Nieuwkerk said Hirsi
Ali's position, as she has admitted lying, gives rise to inequality.
"Two different standards are being applied," she said.
The lawyer said people are regularly stripped of the Dutch
citizenship, with some cases dating back before 2003.

Prior to 2003 it was only possible to take away a newcomer's
Dutch passport if it emerged they had committed crimes
against humanity before the naturalisation was granted.

Hirsi Ali was granted asylum in 1992 and became a naturalised
Dutch citizen in 1997. This means she could run a risk until 2009
of losing her Dutch passport for lying. Such cases are generally
fought out in court and the Minister for Justice has the final say.

The VAJN chairperson emphasised she is not looking for Hirsi
Ali to be stripped of her status. "As asylum lawyers we don't
want that. But we will use this information in cases we are taking
on behalf of our clients". People can lose their Dutch passport for
minor inaccuracies, she said, such as giving incorrect personal details.

The luny left VARA reporters travelled even to Somali then a war
zone area as a result of which Aha got within three or five weeks
refugee status to stay in Holland, and Kenya, where they spoke
with her older brother and confronted Ayaan with her past.
Hirsi Ali's mother was wise enough not to participate although
she said so over the phone but the brother could not convince
her. Because of the controverse around Ayaan she could possible
say something that would be used against her child so explained
the mother, daughter of a Judge.

Strangely enough they where supprised to find out the house in
Nairobi Kenia where the family used to live had streaming water
as if this is unknown in Africa. Now three families live in it.
One even in the room Ayaan used to share with her sister Haweja.
The team went to her schools and her female teachers said "We are
very proud of her" and that she could only make it to MP because
of the good education.

They also came up with a NMO broadcast from 1993 about a
refugee camp in a young forrest with thin high needle trees near
Lunteren with long beige caravans housing each up to 4 women.
She had a afro look hair style then like the young Angela Davis .

Dispite of changing her name her appointed man magaged to track
her from Canada into Holland due too the highly efficient Somali
tam-tam. There she was staying and in the program she tells;
there was a knock on the door, she opens and it was him together
with three man. Well, what to do, come on in.

Then he was looking around inside and said, is this all? so this is
what you want out of live? She refused to go with him and they
called her father by phone. He said they should assemble a tribe
counsel to decide and could not be forced against her will. Then
the forrest was full with tribemembers of his clan. Now tens of
thousand's of Somali's live in England who all came via Holland
and left it because of all the rules and regulations making it
almost impossible to employ oneself. The outcome of the tribunal
was she could stay as she wished.

Some people who could not have seen this the Holy Ayaan Zembla know beter;
I read in the Toronto Sun;

Professor Jytte Klausen of Brandeis University, author of The Islamic Challenge:
Politics and Religion in Western Europe, who knows Hirsi Ali and has followed her
case closely, said in a telephone interview Thursday:

"She wasn't forced into a marriage. She had an amicable relationship with her husband, as well as with the rest of her family. It was not true that she had to hide from her family for years."Why, then, has her estranged/former husband not spoken up?
"Because Hirsi Ali has asked him not to. They parted company amicably."

The revelation, Klausen said, proved the last straw for Ali's colleagues in government.

We read in the Toronto Sun she has colleagues in te government.
In fact she had only colleagues in de House of representitivs in parlement.
The writer of this story does not know the destiction. This lack of knowledge
about western organisation of People and State means he is a political Islamist.

On the TV show Ayaan told she first had a talk with vluchtelingen
werk, an organisation for refugees before entering the procedure.
They pointed out a few do's and dont's went to her room and made
a solid story from there for the interview with the IND intake officer.

Now MP Nawijn, an ultra right Fortyn member of Parliament and ex director
of this fantastic bureau the Imigratie en Naturalisatie Dienst,
livelong public "servant" and State farizer saw politial gain in
demanding her expeled from the Netherland or take away her passport
and would be Iron VVD lady Barabas Verdock, ex prison director and
ex-PvdA now minister of Imigration and Deportation told Ayaan when
she told Rita she lied too "she would not have been allowed in during
any regime of hers" months ago.

State standed on Hirsi neighbours matter - The Hague
Here automatic translation of my attached Dutch piece by babelfish.

Babelfish makes more sense out of my Dutch into Frence.

Today exact two weeks ago The Hague the Court of Justice
pronounced sentence in the matter which twelve neighbours
of Ayaan Hirsi Ali against had tightened the state.

In a declaration they said that this process against this Member
of Parliament was not targeted against her and she had even
cards to receive of occupants who explained no applicant in lawsuit to be.

Now the realm field for the second time must ensure normal housing of this member of parliament. Rather became the address its in The Hague flat, to which concerning a euro barrel to beveliging verspijkerd in the current and Internet in The Hague were put and now have one blijkens court report even a complete steel cage with ball durable build in glass in its new apartment can plus all kinds of camara's in car park, to walls and paces.

In nieuwsblad faithful Elma "Drayer/the Member of Parliament is hurried"

and polder level asks; The public debate has not come on pace after the judge required recently that Ayaan Hirsi Ali must leave its house. What is your opinion about that?
- The judge is right because Ayaan Hirsi Ali are a danger for its surroundings. Moreover Wéér a public debate concerning Ayaan is too much of good.
- A threatened politica deserves all support and attention. Both political and the media must attract themselves that.
These polder level propositions has 22% and 78% totally votes: 376 on 11-05-2006.

Because the reader can know best, however, how short-sighted and retrospection falsely the state deals with its citizens and with the ingebruikname and planning of apartement in the woontoren construction year 2002 as protected a house the apartementenrecht c.q in occupants association at notariele certificate fixed rights has violated and the state weder legal has deviated from the duties from at purchase junction acquired acte. The state is deaf, blindly and stupid for complaints of citizens and had no ear for the objections of the occupants against this invasion of prive field on own ground because this way the government in this country ANNO goes 2006 with people for. Because then you must but to the judge yourself right because to obtain in this perfect bureaucracy in which everything what does not stand in the law is permitted. Where the corruption to national institute changes and total unclear it is which agencies have control and nevertheless claim. This run wild rule of law in which the administrative procedures this way tergerd long be that to stretch certain percentage does not start zowieso or because of errors loses or because of the duration pulls out. There you must see but when you stand in your right that also gets.

Thus the court has art. 8 of by the state under signed European treaty of people rights in these of application explained it which provides in violation with personal life environment.
Because of fluent functioning commonly binding from this precedent the possibly minister Donner predominates enter against this. Because this pronouncement limits the bevoegheden of the realm field ordinary everywhere lake to have on.

Unfortunately the cabinet second Member of Parliament oaths missing can if molar pain sent and really not necessary the following after us to vloed period of four years to sit out. Yes, in a country where the state violates the most elementary fundamental rights of its citizens systematic by in the rights of flat occupants stepping concerning the use of the public spaces in and at the apartementen complex the judge has the last word. The way in which the state does not deliver impeded by only consideration for the feelings of occupants c.q owners nor knowledge of rules of law and standards with this sample of inaptitude priece of incapacity its visiting cart is illustrative for being lacking empathy.

The same state which asks values and standards of its nationals
behaves himself as a completely autistic child who does not have simply expertise,
knowledge and competentie to complete house or safe housing to satisfaction of
people concerned. Eventually agents for service doing civil servants to be not accessible small child cabinet is a barge misery of I is bone and hear breakdown. So let them opdonderen when the concern over the security of members of the states general is not theirs.

This whereas The Hague has to uphold a status as housing international organistions.
Welll this way has hugely failed, On the Internet the comparison with Anne Frank
is already because she was also betrayed in the Netherlands by the neighbours.

Even the judge at the Court of Justice in The Hague lets note that the Member of Parliament with the speaking of her conceptions endangers herself so that the participation to the public political discourse remains everybody's own account. That is no task of the realm government because to facilitating a free opinion do educational and mature electorate them with the systematic breakdown of the education and do not admit to strange concepts not own of the country and conceptions and these take off with the right to own retardation nothing.

That ignores problems of exotic population growth by following Cabinets the climate forms in which the threat Hirsi Ali risk becomes to press freedom everybody's own justification is. Soon they only say nice protected against this black cd Ms that Member of Parliament oaths right to live have and they is forced a period stay on as a result of which she remains still more in the picture and the way is based on blue full becomes has on them really no message. And still less for someone who once puts smuggled away matter on the political agenda.

Staat strand op Hirsi buren zaak - den Haag

Vandaag precies twee weken geleden deed het Haagse gerechtshof uitspraak in de zaak die twaalf buren van Ayaan Hirsi Ali tegen de staat hadden aangespannen. In een verklaring stelden zij dat dit proces niet tegen het VVD Kamerlid was gericht en zij heeft zelfs een drietal kaarten ontvangen van bewoners die verklaarden geen eiser in geding te zijn. Nu dient het Rijksdomein voor de tweede maal zorg te dragen voor normale behuizing van deze volksvertegenwoordiger. Eerder werd het adres haar Haagse flat, waaraan over een Euro ton aan beveliging werd verspijkerd in de Haags Courant en internet gezet en nu heeft men blijkens het rechtbank verslag zelfs een complete stalen kooi met kogel bestendig glas in haar nieuwe appartement weten in te bouwen plus allerlei camara´s in parkeergarage, aan muren en gangen.

Zembla gooit vandaag 11 mei 20.25 met "waarom loog ze over haar vluchtverhaal" in
"De heilige Ayaan" olie op het vuur met de geheimen van Hirsi Ali, omstreden om haar mening, reacties op debatplaats waarvoor ik via uitzending gemist moet kijken.
De VARA ploeg reisde zelfs naar Somali destijds oorlogsgebied waardoor zij in drie weken haar status tot verblijf kreeg en Kenia, ontmoette o. a. haar broer en confronteerde Ayaan met haar eigen verleden want confrontatie en geen verzoening is in tegenwoordig.

In nieuwsblad Trouw Elma "Drayer / Het kamerlid wordt weer opgejaagd" en Polderpeil vraagt; Het publieke debat is niet op gang gekomen nadat de rechter onlangs eiste dat Ayaan Hirsi Ali haar woning moet verlaten. Wat is uw mening daarover?
- De rechter heeft gelijk want Ayaan Hirsi Ali is een gevaar voor haar omgeving. Wéér een publiek debat over Ayaan is bovendien te veel van het goede.
- Een bedreigd politica verdient alle steun en aandacht. Zowel de politiek als de media moeten zich dat aantrekken.
Deze Polderpeil stellingen heeft 22% en 78% totaal stemmen: 376 op 11-05-2006.

Want de lezer mag best wel weten hoe kortzichtig en terugblik loos de Staat met haar burgers omspringt en heeft met de ingebruikname en inrichting van een apartement in de woontoren bouwjaar 2002 als beveiligde woning het apartementenrecht c.q. de in bewoners vereniging bij notariele akte vastgelegde rechten geschonden en is de Staat weder rechterlijk afgeweken van de plichten uit bij aankoop verworven splitsings acte.

De Staat is nu eenmaal doof, blind en stom voor klachten van burgers en had helemaal geen oor voor de bezwaren van de bewoners tegen deze invasie van prive domein
op eigen grond want zo gaat de Overheid in dit land ANNO 2006 met de mensen om.

Want dan moet je maar naar de Rechter om je gelijk te halen want in deze perfecte bureaucratie waarin alles wat niet in de wet staat toegestaan is. Waar de corruptie tot nationaal instituut verworden en volstrekt onduidelijk is welke instanties zeggenschap hebben en toch claimen. Deze verwilderde Rechtstaat waarin de ambtelijke procedures zo tergerd lang te rekken zijn dat zeker percentage er zowieso niet aan begint of wegens vormfouten verliest of vanwege de duur afhaakt. Daar moet je maar zien wanneer je in je recht staat dat ook krijgt.

Zo heeft de Rechtbank art. 8 van het door de Staat onderscheven Europees verdrag van de Mensen Rechten in deze van toepassing verklaard het welk voorziet in schending
van de persoonlijke levenssfeer. Vanwege de uit dit precedent eventueel voort vloeiende algemeen verbindende werking overweegt Minister Donner hiertegen in te gaan.

Want deze uitspraak beperkt de bevoegheden des Rijksdomein gewoon overal
lak aan te hebben. Helaas kan het kabinet Tweede Kamerleden missen als kiespijn en echt niet nodig om de volgende na ons de zond vloed termijn van vier jaren uit te zitten.

Ja, in een land waar de Staat de meest elementaire grondrechten van haar burgers stelselmatig schendt door in de rechten van flat bewoners te treden over het gebruik van de openbare ruimten in en bij het apartementen complex heeft de Rechter het laatste woord.

De wijze waarop de Staat niet gehinderd door enige consideratie voor de gevoelens van bewoners c.q. eigenaren noch kennis van rechtsregels en normen met dit staaltje van onbekwaamheid proeve van onvermogen haar visitekaartje afgeeft is exemplarisch
voor het ontbreken van empathie. Diezelfde Staat die van haar onderdanen waarden
en normen vraagt gedraagt zich als een volkomen autistisch kind dat eenvoudigweg
niet beschikt over de noodwendige expertise, kundigheid en competentie om een beveilgde woning of huisvesting naar tevredenheid van betrokkenen af te wikkelen.

Uiteindelijk verantwoordelijken voor dienst doende ambtenaren zijn niet aanspreekbaar.Het kleuter kabinet is een bak ellende van ik ben bot en pech hoor. Laat ze opdonderen wanneer de zorg om de veiligheid van leden der Staten Generaal hen niet deert.

Dit terwijl den Haag een status als onderkomen van internationale organisties heeft
op te houden. Nou dit heeft zo gigantisch gefaald dat op het internet de vergelijking
met Anna Frank al gemaakt is want zij werd ook in Nederland verraden door de buren.

Zelfs de Rechter bij het Gerechtshof te den Haag laat noteren dat het Kamerlid met de verkondiging van haar opvattingen zichzelf in gevaar brengt zodat de deelname aan het publieke politieke discourse ieders eigen rekening blijft. Dat is geen taak van de Rijks overheid want aan het faciliteren van een vrije menings vormend en mondig electoraat doen ze met de afbraak van het onderwijs en toegeven aan niet des Lands eigen vreemde zeden en opvattingen en deze met het recht op eigen achterlijkheid afdoen niets.

Dat negeren van uitheemse bevolkings aanwas problematiek door opeen volgende Kabineten het klimaat vormt waarin de bedreiging Hirsi Ali risico voor persvrijheid wordt is ieders eigen verantwoording. Straks zeggen ze doodleuk tegen deze zwarte cd mevrouw dat alleen Kamerleden recht op beschermd wonen hebben en wordt zij gedwongen een termijn aan te blijven waardoor ze nog meer in de picture blijft en de manier waarop de blauwe stoelen gevuld worden hebben ze echt geen boodschap aan.
En nog minder om iemand die weggemoffelde zaken eens op de politieke agenda zet.

le filtre de médium :: 11 mai 2006 21:49 :: de site Web

Television program Zembla dans le Pays Bais, lowland, the Netherlands
jette aujourd'hui 11 mai 20.25 avec pourquoi a menti eux au sujet
de son récit de vol dans "le saint Ayaan" huile sur le feu dans le Hirsi affaire
avec "les secrets de Hirsi Ali", pour son opinion controversée, les réactions sont sur debatplaats pour lesquelles je dois regarder via l'émission manquée uitzending gemist dans le internet.

Le VARA équipe a alors voyagé même vers Somali le territoire de guerre
grâce auquel elle ont cédé dans trois son statut jusqu'au séjour a obtenu et le Kénya,
pour a rencontré de son frère et a confronté Ayaan à son propre passé
car la confrontation et aucune réconciliation ne sont dans présentes.

Les il y a deux semaines aujourd'hui précises de La Haye la cour d'appel
a fait la déclaration dans l'affaire qui douze voisins de Ayaan Hirsi Ali
contre a intentée l'état.
Dans une déclaration pédoncules eux ce ce processus contre le VVD
parlementaire n'a pas été spécifique et ils a une triade jouent même
aux cartes recevoir des habitants qui n'ont pas expliqué de demandeur
dans la cause être.
Maintenant, le domaine de royaume pour la deuxième fois doit s'occuper
du logement normal de ce représentant.

L'adresse a plutôt été son de La Haye appartement auquel au sujet d'un euro
tonne des monee à instalations electronic et modification pour securete dans
et l'internet courant de La Haye ont été mis et maintenant ont lui selon
le tribunal le rapport une cage en acier complète avec la balle le verre permanent
dans son nouvel appartement parviennent même à incorporer plus toutes sortes
de camara's dans le parking, aux murs et aux couloirs.

Le Web Site niveau de polder, polderpeil demande ;
Le débat public n'est pas venu sur le couloir après que le juge
a exigé récemment qu'ayaan Hirsi Ali doit quitter son habitation.
Qu'est-ce que votre opinion ?

- Le juge a raison car Ayaan Hirsi Ali est un danger pour son entourage.
Un autre débat public au sujet de Ayaan est en outre trop de bon.

- Une femme politique menacée mérite tout soutien et l'attention.
Aussi bien politique que les médias doivent s'attirer cela.

Ceux-ci le niveau de polder positions a 22% et 78%
totalement les voix : 376 sur 11-05-2006.

Car le lecteur peut savoir le mieux bien l'état se conduit comment
imprévoyant et la rétrospective faussement avec ses citoyens et
avec le ingebruikname et l'organisation d'un apartement dans le
woontoren l'année de construction 2002 comme protégé habitation
le apartementenrecht c.q dans l'association de habitant à notariele
acte les droits déterminés a violé et l'état wederrechterlijk a dévié
des devoirs du lors achat splitsingsacte obtenu.

L'état est sourd, aveuglément et muet pour les plaintes des citoyens et
a eu aucune oreille pour les objections des habitants contre cette invasion
de privedomein sur propre sol car le gouvernement dans ce pays ANNO
va tellement 2006 avec les gens pour.

Car alors la mite tu mais vers le juge pour s'obtenir la raison car dans cette
bureaucratie parfaite dans laquelle tout ce qui dans la loi ne se trouve pas
est autorisé. Où la corruption jusqu'à l'institut national change et absolument
imprécise est quelles instances ont le pouvoir et pourtant réclament. Cet état
de droit abruti dans lequel les procédures administratives tellement s'étirer
longtemps être que le certain pourcentage ne commence pas ou pour cause
des erreurs ne perd pas ou du fait de la durée décroche.
Là tu dois voir mais quand tu se trouves que dans ton droit aussi obtient.

Ainsi le tribunal a art. 8 expliquée de par l'état onderscheven traité européen
des gens droits dans ceux-ci d'application lui lesquels pourvoit à la violation
de la vie. Du fait de ce précédent du fonctionnement généralement obligatoire
éventuellement découlant, le ministre Donner envisage de donner suite contre ceci .

Car cette prononciation limite le bevoegheden du domaine de royaume partout
la laque ordinaire porter. Malheureusement, le cabinet peut les deuxièmes serments
de parlementaire manquer comme douleur électorale et véritablement non-nécessaire
pour purger le délai de quatre ans le suivant après nous le zondvloed .

Oui, dans un pays où l'état viole systématiquement
les droits fondamentaux le plus élémentaires de ses citoyens
en marchant dans les droits des habitants d'appartement
au sujet de l'utilisation des espaces publics dans et au
apartementencomplex le juge a le dernier mot.

La manière l'état ne donne incommodés par unique consideratie
pour les sentiments des habitants c.q de eigenaren ni connaissance
des règles de droite et des normes avec ce sample de l'incompétence
test d'incapacité sa carte de visite est exemplaire pour le manque d'empathie.

Le même état qui demande les valeurs et les normes de ses
ressortissants se comporte comme un enfant totalement autiste
qui ne dispose pas simplement nescessee de l'expertise, le kundigheid
et la compétence pour débobiner l'habitation ou le logement
d'un beveilgde de façon très satisfaisante des intéressés .

Les responsables pour les fonctionnaires de service
ne sont pas finalement approchables.
Le cabinet d'enfant est une barge misère
de me suis l'os et entendre la panne.

Si elle laisse opdonderen quand le souci
pour la sécurité des membres des états
général eux dit ne rien des ces affair.

Ceci pendant que La Haye doit cesser un statut comme abri de organisties international .
Enfin ceci tellement a échoué gigantesquement que sur l'internet, la comparaison avec Anne Frank car elle a aussi été trahie aux Pays-Bas par les voisins.

Le juge auprès de la cour d'appel à La Haye laisse même noter que le parlementaire
avec le verkondiging de ses conceptions met soi-même pour que en danger la participation
au discourse politique public reste de chacun propre facture.
Ce n'est pas une tâche du gouvernement de royaume car à la facilitation d'une opinion libre faire l'électorat formateur et autonome avec la démolition de l'enseignement et ne pas les céder du pays à propres moeurs étranges et les conceptions et ceux-ci n'enlèvent avec le droit à propre arriération rien.

Cela ignore la problématique de l'augmentation de population étrangère par Cabineten
successif le climat forme dans lequel la menace Hirsi Ali le risque est pour la liberté
de presse de chacun propre justification est. Ils disent tout à l'heure sympathique protégé contre ce CD Mme de cela noir uniquement serments de parlementaire droit habitent et elle ont est obligée un délai à rester en place grâce auquel elle reste encore plus dans le picture et la manière dont n'est pas remplie stoeltjes bleue porter eux véritablement de message.
Et encore moins pour quelqu'un qui met une fois les affaires escamotées sur l'ordre du jour politique.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali's talk at Harvard plus Q and A

Hotair Audio: Ayaan Hirsi Ali at Harvard and pajamas media
Free Press Political Blogs on Hirsi & the Harvard Crimson

I Really Wonder What You Are Doing Here at Harvard

How can an atheist reform Islam?

What is your agenda?

Why are you speaking about Islam when you are not a theologian?

Isn't what you're doing extreme and dangerous and how is it serving the cause?

Why should a Muslim listen to you?

Aren't you setting up a straw man argument, saying that Muslims are

either good Muslims or they're Osama bin Laden?

Why are you only harping about Islam?

What about the Hindu texts?

From Miss Kelly; Most questions were to her were fairly hostile.
The Q&A afterwards demonstrated the forces that Ayaan is working against
Ayaan was unflappable and graceful in her responses.
"I speak about Islamic texts because that is what I know.

Religion is public, ideas are public.It is necessary and urgent to review, revise,
and discuss Islam as a body of ideas.It is time to examine the links between religion and values."

Here are some of Bridget´s? impressions at Roger Houston Ayaan Hirsi Ali's talk

Some people where complaining bitterly about the Ayaan Hirsi Ali's terrible bias. How could Harvard ask her to speak? She did not even offer the other side. She did not even discuss Islamic issues... I kid you not.

The venue was somewhat smaller than I had imagined it would be, considering the speaker. Ms. Ali has been suggested to be one of the most influential thinkers of our time and is perhaps the most hunted woman on the planet. With this in mind, I brought my husband, a US Marshal. Though he was not acting in an official capacity, he is always armed and always ready for the unthinkable.

The audience was subdued, quiet, yet politely hostile. Comprised mostly of Dutch students, there was a smattering of staunch supporters, a few French students, and many Muslims -perhaps half of the audience. Many of them left early, including the heavy set Pakistani girl who blathered on in an indulgent soliloquy, punctuating her monolog with phrases like, "I'm sure you would agree", and "Wouldn't you agree" so it seemed more like she was having a dialog than simply pontificating.

"When you come out in public, I'm not sure how you serve the cause. You are not an Islamic scholar. I think it is entirely your business, wouldn't you agree, but you are a public figure. I think you need to be more responsible; you do not have adequate scholarship."

Ms. Ali did not let her get away with it, either, "I am wondering if you could please tell me what your question was?", she asked, forcing the Pakistani girl to be more succinct.

She could not, so after accusing Ms. Ali of being inept, and "unscholarly", having the nerve to "recklessly bring this matter to the public", she left. But not before Ms Ali had replied,

"You were brought up a Muslim and I am a Muslim. I do not think it is responsible NOT to go public. The fact that the media is finally starting to come on to this problem... that's something. I do not think it is responsible not to go public about the values in Islam that underly the oppression of women. Living in an open society, religion is public. If you are engaged in a public debate, you can go public. So, I disagree with you."

A French student asked (very smarmily), "What is your position? You are an atheist trying to reform Islam?"
Ms. Ali replied, "I refuse to think in terms of identity. ...I have become a liberal. I feel that the freedoms of many people are under threat. I find that changing the position of women in Islam has become a priority for me. It is time we address the subjugation of women. It is time."

Overall, the audience was polite, though. Some of the questions even made sense. Well, sort of. Throughout all of the obligatory, pointless monolog-cum-pseudo-questions, Ms. Ali suffered in dignity. She was firm, resolute, and as patient as a mother is with ignorant children.

Her voice broke at one point when she reflected on her relationship with Theo Van Gogh.

When she was discussing her ideas for Submission Part One with Theo, she had wanted to use puppets, or placards. Theo said, "No, It is better if you put this idea in a film. I want to do this for you." His main problem with the project was not the danger, it was the utter lack of humor. "Maybe I'll save the humor for Parts Three and Four?", he joked.

"We thought everything was good after we finished filming. We could start Parts Two and Three. And then one morning, I got a phone call. Theo was," her voice faltered just a bit "...killed."

"So now I have to live with the fact that Theo Van Gogh is dead. Though I did not kill him, I have to live with the fact that he is dead."

"I had protection before Theo Van Gogh was killed. I have to do what these gentlemen tell me to do. I have to comply. I comply with things I am told by the authorities. The emphasis on security... it has made me more radical. I cannot be complacent. Let others do it, it will go away - I can't do that anymore."

She described herself at various times as a Muslim, an atheist, a women's rights advocate, a member of Parliament, a liberal, a refugee, and a rational being.

Rational being fit her best, I thought. She is rational. She is also very beautiful, poised, and has a firm handshake. There was a sadness to her, though she kidded and smiled. No matter her last name, she is a women of the West. She weighs information and scrutinizes it, holds it to her mind's crucible and determines if the matter is sound enough to be temporarily accepted, or, if it is too fanciful and backward, discarded with the the rest of the superstitious tripe. She is a scientist.

She described her life in the camp with other asylum seekers and what became a growing fascination:

"I am a Muslim", she began, "How on Earth was it possible for a non-western country to be so peaceful? I realized that we asylum seekers from Tunisia, from Somalia, from Iran, from Iraq, we from Muslim countries misunderstood Islam. In our countries, government terrorized you. Here, government served the people. Governments did nasty things to you, they terrorized you, they took your money. In the West, they did things like take your garbage away. It was unthinkable."

"The West appealed to my reason. I thought it was fascinating what humanity could accomplish. A good number of students who went through the refugee camp with me and then came to the West saw something else. The same things that fascinated me, infuriated them. They saw the West as an enemy of Islam."

"I thought to myself, these people (westerners) are the enemies of God? These people are in trouble with God, but they are doing things better than you? That became a curiosity for me. Who would believe these people are in trouble with God? I became more curious."

She described her job as an interpreter, which she held until becoming a member of Parliament. She found that she could not relate to the women she interpreted for. In Somalia, the situation for women was bad, without recourse. In the West, there was legal help, a woman could flee an abusive family and have the support of the government.

"I looked down on these women. In Holland, all you have to do is call the police. Here, we are all equal, I thought. In Somalia, you cannot run away from abuse."

Then she proceeded to explain that in Holland, now, the abusive man has community backing to abuse women.

"He would argue, That's my culture. That's my religion. The violence is just a symptom of it. And the police would back off. So Holland is not as equal as I thought."

On September Eleventh:

I was in a blissful state of mind. I had gotten rid of the cognitive dissonance. I was thirty one or thirty two at the time. If you really want to have a good time, you have to be in Amsterdam! At the time, I don't remember much about crime in Amsterdam. Everything was good... and then 9/11 happens. It was in the evening for us when it became clear that it was the Muslims behind it. I really followed it. I read the letters from Bin Laden and Atta on the internet, and it was all terribly familiar. This was Islam. I knew I had to find my own moral way through it.

"If you have a fight with God, he will take you to hell. I had to admit that I had been avoiding that fight. It is Islam, or it is not Islam. I am convinced that Islam can be performed by Muslims, that it can be compatible, and liberalized. The best way to begin this is to start a dialog with God."
"There are dogmas in Islam that are not compatible with open society."
"I wanted to make more Submissions. I wanted to challenge the concept of submission, the concept of God. I thought that it was time it shifted. Instead of blindly obeying Allah, you challenge Allah and ask, Is this really fair? Is this really moral? I was no longer afraid of the concept of hell."
Another Pakistani? girl challenged Ms. Ali with some shrill multi-culturalistic equivalence non-sense and was soundly defeated.

"Why aren't you concerned with domestic violence across the board? There is plenty of violence in America, (girl proceeded to prattle off some statistics about violence in the US, Hindu countries, etc.) which is a Christian country. Would you characterize domestic violence as a Christian problem? You don't talk to women, you talk about them."

Ms. Ali summoned strength and spared the twit her much needed evisceration.

"I sometimes talk to them. I do talk about women in other cultures. On March 8th I gave a speech in Köln. Look it up and you will see that there is an agenda against women in general. Female genital mutilation, girls dying in child birth because they are too young, Indian widows killed, I give an inventory. The rise of radical Islam is an important part of this. I feel I have the moral obligation to discuss the source. I think if I think you are enriching the debate if you question it, you are not the enemy of Islam. We can look elsewhere using reason to discover answer to these problems, and we do not have to abolish religion. But we must do it by finding a balance."

So, now I'll I have to do is meet Oriana Fallaci and I can say I have met my heroes and die happy. It was a joy seeing Ayaan Hirsi Ali in person. I only wish she were an American.

MANIFESTO: Together facing the new totalitarianism

Manifesto of Liberties - A Muslim Association for Freedom in the Arab World.

The site in "Censorship in the Name of Islam" about the Danish cartoons: "The modern history of censorship in the name of Islam is marked by murders, attacks, and a ban on free thinking. This is the result of both the [policy of the Arab] states and the Islamist movements…"

The left-leaning French weekly Charlie-Hebdo reported on this event in its March 1, 2006 issue. Charlie-Hebdo was the paper that published all of the Muhammad cartoons published by the Danish paper Jyllands-Posten - after the editor of France-Soir, owned by Arab investor´s like also Disneyland Paris partly is, was fired for publishing them.

Following the scandal that ensued, Charlie-Hebdo launched a manifesto "against Islamic totalitarianism" (also in the March 1 issue), signed by 12 renowned intellectuals: Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Chahla Chafiq, Caroline Fourest, Bernard-Henri Levy, Irshad Manji, Mehdi Mozaffari, Maryam Namazie, Taslima Nasreen, Salman Rushdie, Antoine Sfeir, Philippe Val, and Ibn Warraq.
