Ironically, 9/11 has given such views an audience that they would otherwise never have possessed.The writer, a history teacher, has a very short memory if he thinks an event like 911 would create the audience for making a career out of and earning a living of peoples fear of islam.
An example of how Islamophobia truly pays is provided by the recent case of the Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who after a brief career in the Dutch parliament is about to leave that country for a radical right-wing think tank, the American Enterprise Institute, known for its hand behind the war in Iraq and Republican foreign policy.The writer who is a history teacher does not know most Dutch MP's only serve one termin of 4 years since they are selldom chosen twice and since the governement's minister for immigration stipped her of her citizenship Hirsi was forced the give up her lawseat.
Though acclaimed by the likes of Time magazine and Christopher Hitchens, it is now amply clear that Ali gained Dutch citizenship under false pretences, claiming to be a political refugee from Somalia, when in fact she was a long-term resident of Kenya.The writer who is presented by the Times of India as a teacher of history is not awear that Somalia does not have a international recognitized governement. Not now and not in the year 1992 with civil clanwars when Hirsi asked for asylum and names Hirsi's use of her mothers name Ali and change of her birthyear 1969 into 1967 to avoid beinging traced by her tribe or enemies thereof "false pretences". The Somalian people lived in the now Ethiopia, Puntland, Somalia and Kenia countries long before the Frence, Italian and British colonisators divided it up between them and made those arteficial borders.
In Holland, after flirting with a variety of other tendencies, she was eventually associated with radical Islamophobic movements, and her collaborator Theo van Gogh was murdered in the streets in November 2004 by Mohammed Bouyeri.The writer who teaches his story at UCLA fails to observe the murder in Amsterdam took place on the same date November 2 as the Balfort declaration granting jews permission to settle in Palestine then a British protectoraat since the Turkish occupier lost with the Germans world war one. The letter pinned through the dying corps during the slaughter by Muslim assassin Mohammed is about Hirsi being a slave of her jewish masters. This Mohammed from
is a Arabized berber who sees black women as slaves.
She has then gone on to use a variety of platforms to promote herself, even finding common cause with anti-immigration parties (despite her own history), and playing the card of Islamophobia in the name of an allegiance to the "Enlightenment".Enlightenment is defined by Schopenhauer as using one owns thinking and being mentaly grown up. Her vvd party is sort of anti immigration since it drives the middelclasses and shopowners out of the cities and only poverty remains since the immigrants offspring have no means and ways to support themselfs and the second and thirt generation blames it on the open society they chose to live in! The PvdA used NB a Cohen to write the anti immigation laws that got implemented by a vvd minister.
The vast number of awards she has garnered, in comparison to a number of genuine feminists, social workers, and other public intellectuals, shows once and for all that Islamophobia does pay, especially coming from a former Muslim. At this rate, Ali will be the Bernard Lewis of tomorrow.The writer teaches history in UCLA but predicts the future!
SANJAY SUBRAHMANYAM disqualifies himself out of his profession by promoting his political opion that Islamophobia has to do with getting payed for it.
Députée au Parlement des Pays- Bas, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, d'origine somalienne, a récupéré, mardi 27 juin, sa nationalité et son passeport néerlandais. Elle en était privée, depuis le 15 mai, par décision de la ministre de l'immigration et de l'intégration, Rita Verdonk, pourtant membre de la même formation politique - le VVD, Parti populaire pour la liberté et la démocratie (libéral). Mme Verdonk, qui a une réputation de femme à poigne, avait pris cette mesure radicale après la diffusion d'un reportage dans lequel Mme Hirsi Ali était accusée d'avoir menti sur son nom et sa date de naissance lorsqu'elle avait formulé sa demande d'asile, en 1992.
