Is Ayaan Hirsi Ali a racist? She was born in Somalia, from which she escaped to avoid an arranged marriage, and she eventually became a member of Parliament in the Netherlands
She helped produce a film with Theo Van Gogh which criticized Islam's treatment of women. Van Gogh was shot to death by a Muslim in retaliation, and a note was pinned to his chest with a knife — a note that threatened Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Muslims see themselves as being in a permanent state of war with anyone who has ever insulted their honor in any way
The murder of nine Americans by an Afghan veteran air force pilot comes in the same week that Palestinian Authority police opened fire on Jewish religious worshipers headed to Joseph’s Tomb.

Why is Turkey's AKP ruling party opposing efforts to protect women? Because the Qur'an directs men to beat disobedient women (4:34); how, then, is all this domestic violence any concern of a good, pious Muslim? "Domestic violence rings alarm bells in Turkey," by Safak Timur for Agence France-Presse, April 28 (thanks to all who sent this in):
CORRECTION: I listened to it again and Burak said "…is not a Muslim leader…” which begs the question, why is the US going to make sure the body is handled in strict adherence to the sharia? Well, I guess that kills any rumours that Obama is a Muslim.
