Where Innocence and Joy Reside

Sharing

Laura Bruno's Blog

This is an important 2011 conversation with a truly amazing woman, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of “Infidel,” “Heretic” and other books, Somali woman victim of female genital mutilation, immigrant to the Netherlands and now US citizen due to death threats made against her when she began to speak out for Muslim women’s rights in Holland.

If you don’t have time for the full talk, then especially take time to listen to minutes 57 onward — deeply relevant for the US and Europe right now, with messages for both far right and far left. In earlier parts of the talk, she describes efforts towards peace and the importance of moving beyond indoctrinated hatred. It also offers an opportunity to learn about Sharia Law from a former Muslim and current activist trying to save young women and girls from the growing problem of “honor violence”in the US.
