    I was watching the BBC s Muslim Beauty Pageant and Me hosted by and starring Dina Torkia, an English Muslim who wears hijab, not the black stuff but pretty fabrics I thought this is going to be good Balance I m going to see that Ayaan Hirsi Ali is feverishly hysterical and that what she says might apply to the immigrants from Africa and evenso from Arabia, but not to British Muslims.The girls, who all wore hijab and a lot of makeup looked very pretty They had to undergo physicals and I was watching the BBC s Muslim Beauty Pageant and Me hosted by and starring Dina Torkia, an English Muslim who wears hijab, not the black stuff but pretty fabrics I ...

    Infidel is the personal story of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali woman who, after a loveless childhood to put it very mildly , came to Holland at the age of 20 claiming refugee status to escape an arranged and forced marriage, and to assert her independence She was accepted, found her way around, studied political science, became a citizen, fell away from Islam, and became a member of Parliament In 2004 she and Theo van Gogh made the short film Submission Part 1 , which resulted in Theo s gettin Infidel is the personal story of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali woman who, after a loveless childhood to put it very mildly , came to Holland at the age of 20 claiming refugee status to escape an arranged and forced marriage, and to assert her independence She was accepted, found her way around, studied political science, became a citizen, fell away from Islam, and became a member of Parliament In 2004 she and Theo van Gogh made the short film Submission Part 1 , which resulted in Theo s getting killed and Holland s being thrown into near chaos For her security, she w...

    I m kind of shell shocked The squishy Liberal views that have, up to now, dominated my concepts about immigration, multiculturalism, integration, Islam, the burqa, and a live and let live philosophy, have all been shaken and stirred beyond recognition Hirsi Ali is an extraordinary woman, to have survived and risen above her incredibly dysfunctional upbringing Dysfunctional in part because her family was rife with sup...

    Last week, I heard a colleague ranting about Islam and women s rights He was reading this book and espousing Hirsi Ali s views The next day, I lent him my copy of the Quran so that he d have some background on the basic text of the religion he was trashing I tend to find that all of the major religious tomes are ridiculous, hopelessly outdated, and that it s not a flaw in religion but a fault of those interpreting fundamental texts in fundamentalist ways when religion becomes less a spiritual Last week, I heard a colleague ranting about Islam and women s rights He was reading this book and espousing Hirsi Ali s views The next day, I lent him my copy of the Quran so that he d have some background on the basic text of the religion he was trashing I tend to find that all of the major religious tomes are ridiculous, hopelessly outdated, and that it s not a flaw in religion but a fault of those interpreting fundamental texts in fundamentalist ways when religion becomes less a spiritual undertaking of peace and worthy living anda set of doctrines used against those who disagree and or were raised differently For the record, I think religion is a load of garbage, but I recognize its many compelling characteristics, the difficulty of coolly analyzing the components of one s upbringing, and the charisma of leaders who believe strongly in something.In any case, the day after my friend grumblingly accepted my Qura...

    I feel like my imagination isn t big enough to even begin to comprehend what life is like growing up in Somalia, Kenya, and Saudi Arabia as a female Muslim with an absent father and an abusive mother Even though Ayaan does a good job covering her youth and describing her life to those who have no frame of reference for that kind of life, it still is hard to imagine It goes without saying that those of us born and raised in the United States have been so amply blessed its almost beyond compr I feel like my imagination isn t big enough to even begin to comprehend what life is like growing up in Somalia, Kenya, and Saudi Arabia as a female Muslim with an absent father and an abusive mother Even though Ayaan does a good job covering her youth and describing her life to those who have no frame of reference for that kind of life, it still is hard to imagine It goes without saying that those of us born and raised in the United States have been so amply blessed its almost beyond comprehension So, the most interesting part of the book, in addition to getting an insider s view and perspective on Islam, is when Ayaan makes a run for it and becomes a refugee in Holland This happens about two thirds through the book, so by the time she makes her escape, I was almost numb to the brutality of her existenance as...

    This would have been a four star rating, but I m upping it to five because this book has significantly altered my world view I ve been one of those western liberals, thinking that Islam is mostly about peace and that the violence of it stems only from the fanatics I m revising that stance now and am wondering how I could ever have been so blind.Here in Norway, where I live, everyone is ever so willing to adapt to immigrants We change our school traditions so that we do not offend people who h This would have been a four star rating, but I m upping it to five because this book has significantly alter...

    This masquerades as pure autobiography of the daughter of an iconic Somali revolutionary, who was absent for most of her life and left her, her brother, and her sister to be cared for by a heavy handed grandmother and an abusive mother If I were rating the review as an autobiography, I would give it an additional star As an autobiography, it does not let you down, although it does drag a little slower towards the end.When reading this book, however, you quickly realize that the...
