“Fel sorts hjälte” – New York Post skriver om Ayaan Hirsi Ali

“Ayaan Hirsi Ali borde vara den perfekta feministiska hjälten”, menar Rich Lowry i New York Post.

In theory, she fits the role on multiple levels: She’s an escapee from an abusive patriarchy.
She’s an African immigrant who made her own way in a Western country, the Netherlands. She’s a fierce advocate for women’s rights.
She’s a target for deadly violence by angry men who want to shut her up. She left her religion and became a scourge of its repressive practices.
Except for the blemish on her record: Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a dissident from the wrong religion.
Raised a Muslim in Somalia, subjected to genital mutilation and married off to a distant cousin, she is famously a critic of Islam.
She has excoriated it at extraordinary risk to her own safety, and makes the case again in her latest book, “Heretic: Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now.”
When she collaborated on a film in the Netherlands in 2004 cataloging abuses against Muslim women, her fellow filmmaker Theo van Gogh was assassinated by an Islamist who left a note threatening her pinned to van Gogh’s chest — with a knife.
But Hirsi Ali wouldn’t be silenced. She is truly a hero of our time. She is defying the jihadi censors, the misbegotten hate-speech laws and the polite conventions of Western debate that all limit what can be said about the relationship of Islam to modernity.

En hjälte för vår tid? Tyvärr slirar hon lite för mycket på sanningen, som ni kan läsa i Max Blumenthals genomgång på AlterNet. Men modig är hon – ofantligt modig. Om hon bara slapp stå så ensam i sin islamkritik.
