Ayaan Hirsi Ali: ‘Why are Muslims so hypersensitive?’

Ayaan Hirsi Ali enters an apartment in New York followed by a bodyguard. The 40-year-old, who for the last six years has been unable to turn up at a venue without it being checked by security, is a writer, polemicist and critic of Islam. She is also a Somali immigrant, an ex-Muslim, a survivor of child genital mutilation, an exile many times over, a former Dutch MP, a black woman whose language would not, in places, look amiss in a BNP pamphlet, a remarked-upon beauty and a lady-in-peril, identities that lend her as a figurehead to disparate causes and bring on confusion in the people she meets…

“I’m not being rightwing,” she says. “The people who believe themselves to be on the left, and who defend the agents of Islam in the name of tolerance and culture, are being rightwing. Not just rightwing. Extreme rightwing. I don’t understand how you can be so upset about the Christian right and just ignore the Islamic right. I’m talking about equality.”

Comedy should provoke! It should blast through prejudices, challenge preconceptions! Comedy should always leave you different than when it found you. Sure, humor can hurt, even alienate, but the risk is better than the alternative: a steady diet of innocuous, child-proof, flavorless mush! DEMAND to be challenged, to be offended, to be treated like thinking, reasoning adults! And raise your children to be the same. Don’t let a comedian, a network, a Congressional committee, or an evil genius take away your freedom to laugh at whatever you want.

"Brother, it is a human being you are beating."

Wow. Islam is really fucked up. This video advises young men on how to properly beat their wives. They try to soften the message by saying not to beat a woman in the face or to not beat them as you would a child or an animal. What that really tells me is that beating your wife is completely acceptable to these guys, but they don’t want to come off as the monsters they are. Which indicates that there are plenty of Muslim men who just beat the living crap out of their wives because their religion tells them it’s okay (and it does).

A long time ago, I used to be one of those postmodern, relativistic types. I was all about tolerating other cultures and was too quick to dismiss the excesses of Christians and Jews and Hindus and Mormons and all the other cults. Then I started to learn about Islam and Muslim culture. That put the brakes on my attitude real fast. Some cultures are better than others. Period. And Islam is possibly the worst of the lot. Its attitude toward women is absolutely barbaric. Anybody who tells you Islam is a religion of peace is completely full of shit.
