(part 1 of 3) Edited extract of a conversation with Ayaan Hirsi Ali at the Sydney Opera House, 27 July, 2010…..

A prominent critic of Islam and fierce proponent of free speech, Hirsi Ali captured the world’s attention with Infidel, her compelling coming-of-age memoir; followed recently by her new book, Nomad.

In Nomad Hirsi Ali talks of her coming to America to build a new life, an ocean away from the death threats made to her by European Islamists, the strife she witnessed, and the inner conflict she suffered. Through stories of the challenges she has faced, Hirsi Ali shows the difficulty of reconciling the contradictions of Islam with Western values….. http://www.sydneyoperahouse.com/whats…

Why white people like Ayaan Hirsi Ali – She’s one of Islam’s harshest critics, and — as her recent talk at the Sydney Opera House showed — even otherwise politically correct western liberals lap up her rhetoric….. http://www.thescavenger.net/feminism-…

No debate is more explosive than the debate on the future of Islam in Europe – In 2006, I had a debate with Tariq Ramadan, the author of Western Muslims and the future of Islam. In the hypothetical event of a war between Egypt and Switzerland, for which community would he be prepared to die, I asked him.

Mr Ramadan has dual citizenship. He’s an Egyptian by birth and a Swiss by naturalisation. His response was one of rage on different levels. Above all I think he was outraged that one should ask such a question….. http://www.thefirstpost.co.uk/47336,n… (pages 1-3)

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an author and former Muslim who has criticized Islam as “the new fascism,” spoke to an overflow crowd at the January Series of Calvin College under heightened security Friday. Her autobiography, “Infidel,” recounts her rise from a humble birth in Somalia to her election to the Dutch parliament….. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapid…

Dutch MP In Naturalisation Controversy – THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS – Dutch Liberal MP and former Somalian refugee Ayaan Hirsi Ali appears at the press conference to announce her resignation from parliament on May 16, 2006 in The Hague, The Netherlands….. Hirsi Ali is said to be shocked by Dutch Immigration Minister Rita Verdonk’s decision that Ayaan, due to lying on her asylum application, never acquired Dutch citizenship. Hirsi Ali will start working for New York based U.S. neo-conservative right wing think tank….. http://www.life.com/image/57622501

Freedom’s just another word – In her new book, Nomad, Ayaan Hirsi Ali engages hearts and minds with reason – and even religion

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a philosopher and a poet, a politician and an instigator of change, but more important to her, she is an individual in a sea of connected individuals. And there’s a storm coming; it’s already started. In her second book, Nomad, Hirsi Ali not only tells compelling stories of her own life as a means of digging into complex global problems of immigration, religion and power relations, but offers solutions. Brilliant, controversial solutions….. http://www.hour.ca/books/books.aspx?i…
