I was sitting in my lounge in the comfort of my heated home watching Channel nine when a beautiful looking black woman came on and spoke about the dangers of Islam. Her name is, Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She is the one that has written a book called, “Infidel” and was elected to the Dutch parliament, vowing to fight for Muslim women in Europe.
Ayaan also wrote a screenplay for Theo van Gogh’s film "Submission," about the abuse and oppression of Muslim women, which led to death threats. After Van Gogh was murdered by a Muslim extremist in 2004, she went into seclusion and then moved to America.
Her new book is called Nomad. This new book is probably the most controversial as one book critic writes…
Ali’s new book, "Nomad," dulls her star somewhat. Touted as a coming-to-America emotional journey, it mostly reads as an anti-Islamic screed. Her former faith, she writes, is "not just ugly but monstrous." Not just the Al Qaeda variety. All Islam. [source]
When she was on the morning show that I was watching she mentions that Christians in the West have a better way and it is up to the Christians in the West to fight Islam on theological grounds because it is only Christ’s message that offers true freedom and hope, not just in this world but in the next. Is is little wonder that her saying that would stir up critics worldwide.
She currently lives under a fatwa and has tight security wherever she goes in the world. It’s interesting to me that Ayaan is an atheist and yet she says…"The Christian leaders now wasting precious time and resources on a futile exercise of interfaith dialogue with the self-appointed leaders of Islam should redirect their efforts to converting as many Muslims as possible to Christianity,"
So here is something that I pulled up about the foundation she started that you may be interested in. On the home page on the right you have the latest court news that involves Muslims in the West.
About the AHA Foundation
In response to ongoing abuses of women’s rights in the name of fundamentalist Islam, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and her supporters established the AHA Foundation in 2007 as a charitable organization to help protect and defend the rights of women in the West against militant Islam.
Through research, the dissemination of knowledge and outreach, the Foundation aims to combat several types of crimes against women, including the abridgement of the education of girls, female genital mutilation, forced marriages, honor violence, and honor killings.
Activities of the AHA Foundation
The three main activities of the Foundation are to:
The AHA Foundation gathers as much data as possible on acts of violence against women and girls in the West that are justified in the name of Islam.

The types of (violent) practices that are thus justified differ from other types of violations of women’s rights.
Parts of the code of Shari’a or Islamic law that apply to the family are practiced in many Western countries including the U.S. In the United States, too, there is a lobby of Muslim organizations – not yet as strong as the lobby in the UK – that seeks to have Shari’a family law implemented through the arbitration system.
Here are some examples of practices that limit the rights and freedoms of women: [see this source to find out more about what is happening around the war in the name of Islam!]
