Glenn Beck & Ayaan Hirsi Ali

One last plug for AHA’s new book, currently pulling five stars at Amazon. Unlike the other interviewers she’s spoken with this week, Beck recognizes he’s in the presence of greatness and reacts accordingly. He also gets her to laugh. Wait until you hear what he said to prompt it.

It gets better as it goes along. Stick with it. And don’t miss Melanie Phillips on two British Muslims who share the same concerns as Hirsi Ali, if not the same religion.

Update: Is Hirsi Ali qualified to blog for John Edwards?

Do you see any positive sides to Islam?
That’s like asking if I see positive sides to Nazism, communism, Catholicism. Of course Islam preaches generosity and kindness and taking care of the poor and elderly and so on – but these values aren’t limited to Islam. If you weigh what is provided in terms of kindness and humanity against the evil that can come from a society built on radical Islam, you will see that liberals must stand up to this like they’ve stood up to other ideologies.

One thought on “Glenn Beck & Ayaan Hirsi Ali”

  1. Hirsi Ali is a treacherous snake. She may be against Islam, but her real hatred is reserved for the Western civilization.

    Here is an excerpt from a posting in “The View from the Right” under the heading:” One way or another, Islam is sharia” that gives a clear picture of the lady:

    “… the hero of the supposed conservatives, the supposed Islam-critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali, recently transplanted from the Dutch parliament to the American Enterprise Institute, has said that she has no problem with Muslims seeking to institute sharia in the West, so long as they do it peacefully. Thus, even though Ali opposes jihad, she is a Muslim immigrant who at least passively supports sharia, and on that basis she should be removed from the United States.
    Either we are serious about protecting our society from this totally alien Islamic law, which represents the complete destruction of our own customs, institutions, and freedoms, or we are not. The only way to be serious about it is to stop and reverse Muslim immigration.
    …, I believe that any person who believes, as Hirsi Ali believes, that the majority religion of the United States is the moral equivalent of Nazism, i.e., the moral equivalent of absolute evil, is self-evidently hostile to the majority culture and traditions of this country and should not be allowed to immigrate here. True, Ali did not equate Christianity per se with Nazism, but Catholicism. However, based on her previous statements, it is evident that her target is not just the Catholic Church but any genuine form of Christianity. And even if she only meant that Catholicism is the moral equivalent of Nazism, a person who shows such hostility to the founding religion of Western society should not be allowed to immigrate into the West. Let her go back to Somalia and try to undermine its customs, rather than come here and undermine our customs. …”
