Former Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali Tells Americans to Pull Their Heads Out of the SandAyaan Hirsi Ali
(Independent Journal) – Human rights activist and former Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” Monday to address Obama’s policies regarding radical Islamic terrorism.
During the segment, Ali spoke of her upbringing in Saudi Arabia to provide some context to the Islamic debate:
“I cannot describe to you what kind of a place Saudi Arabia is. It is apartheid–gender apartheid. It’s a place where using modern tools, and modern money…they actually enforce 7th century rules.”
Ali then spoke of her disbelief regarding American leaders saying terrorism has nothing to do with Islam.
Hannity pressed Ali, asking her if we are being intimidated into saying radicalism is much less pervasive than it really is. Ali replied:
“We are self-intimidating… Our president is not being forced by outside powers to take the position that he’s taking. He has taken it after a lot of thought. He thinks it’s strategic. I just think it’s a strategy that’s failed. He’s not the only one who has tried it.”
Ali went on to make the distinction that while we are not at war with Islam, factions of Islam are at war with us. She also provided a solution, that the religion itself needs to be reformed.
Lastly, she offered a chilling warning:
“Even for Muslims who are already here…there is an active Islamization process going on in the United States of America. We’ve been in denial about it for a very, very long time. It is time that we wake up, and see who is behind this.”
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is the author of the New York Times bestseller Infidel, as well as Heretic, and The Caged Virgin.
