TEXT ☆ Infidel By Ayaan Hirsi Ali Ø Ayaan Hirsi Ali

One of today’s most admired and controversial political figures Ayaan Hirsi Ali burst into international headlines following the murder of Theo van Gogh by an Islamist who threatened that she would be next She made headlines again when she was stripped of her citizenship and resigned from the Dutch Parliament Infidel shows the coming of age of this distinguished political superstar and champion of free speech as well as the development of her beliefs iron will and extraordinary determination to fi 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 even so from Arabia but not to British MuslimsThe girls who all wore hijab and a lot of makeup looked very pretty They had to undergo physicals and psychological testing to make sure they would be the best representative of Miss Muslimah and a shining example to Muslim women all over the world Our girl thought the psychological testing was a bit much with one of the uestions being 'would you rather spend time with friends or have sex'? LOL The girls liked singing Dina said that she had been taught that singing like her body and her hair were part of her attributes that should be hidden from men and she was really surprised it was acceptable I was surprised that her language 'Oh my God shit' and her husband's 'what the fucking hell' was considered acceptable from one so religious but perhaps that is me imposing my ideas on one of another faith But all this 21st century modernity went pear shaped and proved Ayaan right in the end They went to a village and Dina had to stay the night in a house where there was also an old man She felt she couldn't do this without a chaperone her husband so she phoned him in England and he said NO So she couldn't And as she said she couldn't do anything that her husband didn't want that wouldn't be Islamic She was submissive to him in every wayMost of the girls were from Indonesia but Miss Tunisia who was in every way uite ordinary was named the winner in a contest that looked totally fixed to Dina and to me She immediately spoke in Arabic on Palestine Gaza Ira Syria view spoilerAnd here is me silently saying Palestine was subdivided 30% into Israel and 70% into Jordan Why aren't you asking for the Jordanian majority of the land back? It wouldn't be because they are Muslims and it isn't Israel you hate as much as Jews and the West? hide spoiler

Ayaan Hirsi Ali Ø Infidel By Ayaan Hirsi Ali TEXT

Infidel By Ayaan Hirsi AOf Islam as a member of Parliament Under constant threat demonized by reactionary Islamists and politicians disowned by her father and expelled from family and clan she refuses to be silencedUltimately a celebration of triumph over adversity Hirsi Ali’s story tells how a bright little girl evolves out of dutiful obedience to become an outspoken pioneering freedom fighter As Western governments struggle to balance democratic ideals with religious pressures no other book could be timely or significa If I ever decide to make a list of the most important books I’ve read “Infidel” by Ayaan Hirsi Ali would surely find its place on itFirst time I’ve heard about Miss Hirsi Ali it was after murder of Theo Van Gogh because of his film “Submission part one” which he made in collaboration with Hirsi Ali Theo has been shoot and slaughtered in the middle of the day and the letter for Hirsi Ali in which assassin is promising the same to her was staked with knife in Theo’s chest It was really a huge shock with big impact across the EuropeLater “Submission part one” was in the program of the Free Zone Film Festival here in Belgrade and among the guests was Belgrade’s Imam and the conversation after projection was very interesting Sadly I would have much and much better uestion now after reading this bookAnyhow Infidel was one of the most wanted books on my wish list and you can’t imagine my thrill ness when I saw in Belgrade’s bookstores that it has been translated in Serbian I’ve read book in one swallow and then reread it slowly but it raised the same emotional reactionIt starts with the life of her grandmother and later mother in Somalia with such a vivid description of very strict life in Muslim community Her grandmother was an incredibly strong woman capable to accept the destiny and justify it as an Allah’s wish You might think that her actions might be uite brutal with her granddaughters and also comparing with the treatment with her grandson but she was following tradition and was believe that she’s doing rightThere in first part we are introduced how important is to know who your ancestors are It is actually fundamental to be familiar with entire family tree hundreds of years ago because in Somalia first uestion when you meet someone will be “Who are you?” and then they are starting to recite all ancestors until they find a mutual one That can save your life it saved Ayaan’s because the whole population of Somalia is divided in several clans and everything there is based precisely on that Any kind of help health care shelter financial helps etc It’s horribly tight bond between them and horribly huge risk if you disgrace your clanLater we see first “rebellion” in the actions of Ayaan’s mother but still she was women who followed the rule and also was able to accept her destiny because that was Allah’s will Ayaan’s family was a kind of nomadic ones because due to her father’s political activism they had to hide and run away from one place to another Therefore she lived during her childhood in Somalia Saudi Arabia Ethiopia and KenyaWhile reading those pages it was as if I’m reading some fictional story from another dimension Of course accent was on the women in Islam Obligation to be covered obligation to not leave the house without a man obligation to accept everything obligation to not argue obligation to bear obligation to be sexually available to her husband whenever he wants to “plough his field” obligation to be obedient obligation to submit Because word “Islam” means “submission” Moreover she was unfortunate enough to belong to the Muslim community where girls must be circumcised So indeed that part was like something from another worldWe can see how she was growing up physically and religiously How she wanted so badly to be a good Muslim woman who follows all the rules but in the same time she has had many uestions in spite the fact that uestions are forbidden It is one breathtaking image of immense mental struggle between her believes what she has been taught it’s the only truth and the life facts which were uite opposite It was literally painful to read emotion was uite similar to claustrophobiaEventually she started to talk with criticism about her own religion she was loud in her statement against position of women that especially refers in Muslim communities in European countries ie Holland and naturally pile up the anger of Muslim world on herselfIt is a breathtaking story of a woman who in her own words was lucky Once she was a child from the desert with extremely limited possibilities but who became elected member of a Dutch ParliamentBut what has the biggest impact on me is that I “found” myself in the book Namely I realized that I belong to the huge majority of European Christians who are trying to avoid speaking with criticism about other religions because that might be connected very easily with racism nationalism fascism etc Since I lived in the country that has fallen apart in undoubtedly religious war it was civilian war of course but in first place it was religious one I’m trying to be very tolerant and to understand the point of views of the “opposite” sideI realized that I do have very Christian look on Islam and religions in general I honestly believed that all religions therefore Islam as well are good are love peace tolerance etc Right? WrongAyaan Hirsi Ali in this book is telling us that Islam is love and tolerance in very limited sense but ONLY inside the Muslim world For all others who aren’t belonging to that world it is a threat because it gives a strict order to all believers to convert or kill the rest of us who are considered as nonbelievers Another amazing thing is that many inside the Muslim population are not aware of that because the Holly Koran is written in Arabic language they don’t understand What a paradoxWhat is written in Koran is not only religious message but an absolute constant that is defying every singe aspect in believer’s life It is uite unbelievable that it is expected from nowadays believers to strictly follow the rule and apply sanctions of desert tribes of Saudi Arabia in the 7th century But still if they’re not following those rules or even if they think of theirs reasons they’re not good believers and deserve to be punished And those things about unbelievers are written in KoranNow I really don’t know what to think? That’s why I’d love if I could have another opportunity to speak again with Belgrade’s Imam who is a very dear man but I’m wondering if he’s not aggressive toward Christians and doesn’t call his believers to be aggressive; if he doesn’t think that he lives in the country of nonbelievers; if he preaches love peace and tolerance he must be considered as a bad Muslim from the point of view of the followers of traditional Islam about whom Hirsi Ali is writing because that is not what Koran demandsThis book her entire life is a monument of freedom of speech Her criticism has arguments Europe is also criticized with every right Remember Danish cartoon scandal? A cancellation of theater plays which has the theme Prophet or even include Prophet together with representatives from other religions etc? That culture of self censorship will completely ruin European values That is not our heritage; that is not heritage of modern world Allowing speech of hatred which is targeting people who are not Muslims that can be heard in the mosues across the Europe we here are accepting and justifying it with freedom of speech; When Muslim communities in the Europe are practicing traditional Islam that violates numerous human rights we here are justifying that with religious freedom Is female genital mutilation performed on young girls on the kitchen table in the middle of
