Asrat on Ali
(Note: see comment, below, about Mark Steyn’s criticism of Ali.)
Ayaan Hirsi Ali has yet another book out, and the subject once again is—herself. As I have been saying for a long time, Ali is no friend of the West, but a left-libertarian feminist who wants to turn the West into an open-borders laboratory for the self-realization of Muslim women. Just what we need! Also, as Kidist Paulos Asrat writes in her review of the book, Ali has not moderated her virulent opposition to Christianity (she once equated the Catholic Church with Nazism), but has intensified it, as shown in an interview on the Colbert Report which Kidist links and quotes. Further underscoring Ali’s hostility to Christianity, the main blurb on the cover of her book is from that arch-atheist and hater of Christians and conservatives Richard Dawkins, who calls her “a major hero of our times.” So she’s not even pretending to appeal to conservatives any more. I pointed out Ali’s radical anti-conservatism several years ago, while other conservatives were still lauding her as their heroine.

Mark Steyn too recently wrote an article on Ayaan Hirsi Ali. After showering the usual praises on Ms. Ali, Mark Steyn notes:
