  1. 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 ...

  5. 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 superstition, anger, and violence largely because her mother was ...

  6. 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text of the religion he was trashing I tend to find that all of the major religious tomes are ridiculous, hopelessly outdated, and that it s not a flaw in religion but a fault of those interpreting fundamental texts in fundamentalist ways when religion becomes less a spiritual Last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, hopeless...

  7. 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 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 have chosen to come here It s ridiculous It would never happen the other way around This book confirms my view and is concerned at how some asylum seekers form enclaves and refuse to adapt to western society I saw this particularly during the years I lived in Germany, with the Muslim women who could not speak a word of German I too was an immigrant, but I learned German enough to get by in six months.I am straying Anyhow This book is about ...

  8. 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...

  10. 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 there is somewhat o 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 there is somewhat of a political agenda I am not sure if most Americans would understand this since most would know very little, if they know anything at all, about Ali The fact is that she is, again, the daughter of a highly respected Somali nationalist and revolutionary She also served in the Dutch parliament, which later became scandelous when it was disclosed that she had lied to obtain refugee status When you look at her whole life, ...
