I do not believe in God, angels and the hereafter  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) Avoiding offense means that we don’t accept each other as equals  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) Every time I went on TV I got a threat  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) The West is duly terrified. But it should not be surprised  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) Tolerance of intolerance is cowardice  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) I’d love to go and visit the Mosque in Mecca again, just for the sheer beauty of it, not for God - much the way a non-Catholic might go to Vatican City because of the beauty of the buildings and the artifacts.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) My brother thinks it is very, very bad that I left Islam. My half-sister wants to convert me back; I want to convert her to Western values. My mum is terrified that when I die, and we all go to God, I will be burned.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) When your life is threatened, whether it’s by human beings or by disease or whatever, you come to appreciate life.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) The people who believe themselves to be on the left, and who defend the agents of Islam in the name of tolerance and culture, are being rightwing. Not just rightwing. Extreme rightwing. I don’t understand how you can be so upset about the Christian right and just ignore the Islamic right. I’m talking about equality.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) I come from a world where the word ‘trauma’ doesn’t exist, because we are too poor. I didn’t have an easy life compared to the average European. But compared to the average African, it wasn’t all that bad.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) ...Bear true witness, even if it be against yourselves, your parents or your family.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) Christians - at least Christians in a liberal democracy - have accepted, after Thomas Hobbes, that they must obey the secular rule of law; that there must be a separation of church and state  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) In 2010, I suggested that if you are a good Muslim with a good conscience, go and look for a better God, and I think that was juvenile of me.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) My first experience in the Netherlands was very pleasant, extremely pleasant. I mean, I got my residence permit, refugee status, within four weeks of arrival. People treated me extremely well  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) In April 2006, a Dutch court ordered that I leave my safe-home that I was renting from the State. The judge concluded that my neighbors had a right to argue that they felt unsafe because of my presence in the building  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) Every time you take a train, step into your car, walk into the shopping mall, go to the airport - every single time, something could happen. That’s how terrorism works  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) Most unmarried Somali girls who got pregnant committed suicide. I knew of one girl in Mogadishu who poured a can of gasoline over herself in the living room, with everyone there, and burned herself alive. Of course, if she hadn’t done this, her father and brothers would probably have killed her anyway  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) I grew up in Somalia, in Saudi Arabia, in Ethiopia, and in Kenya. I came to Europe in 1992, when I was 22, and became a member of Parliament in Holland  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) I’d like Muslims to look at their religion as a set of beliefs that they can appraise critically and pick and choose from.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) The liberal psyche wants to protect minorities, to apologize for imperialism, colonialism, slavery, and the appalling treatment of black people during the civil rights movement. At the same time, they want to continue to defend the rights of individuals.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) My conscience is informed by reason. It’s like Kant’s categorical imperative: behave to others as you would wish they behaved to you.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) The concept of God in Jewish orthodoxy is one where you’re having constant quarrels with God. Where I come from, in Islam, the only concept of God is you submit to Him and you obey His commands; no quarreling allowed.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) I am not against migration. It is simply pragmatic to restrict migration, while at the same time encouraging integration and fighting discrimination. I support the idea of the free movement of goods, people, money and jobs in Europe.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) You have to let individuals make their own choices and respect that, even if it’s your own child. And that’s what was taken away from me. My father passed away thinking I still had to go back to his way of believing.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) A Western woman is not her brother’s or her father’s property. She’s just herself. She can choose her own lifestyle. But in a Muslim family, the honor of the man is between the legs of a woman.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) Young people, some of whom are not born into the faith, are being fired up by preachers using basic Islamic scripture and mobilized to wage jihad by radical imams who represent themselves as legitimate Muslim clergymen.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) In the real world, equal respect for all cultures doesn’t translate into a rich mosaic of colorful and proud peoples interacting peacefully while maintaining a delightful diversity of food and craftwork. It translates into closed pockets of oppression, ignorance, and abuse.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) I am grateful to my father for sending me to school, and that we moved from Somalia to Kenya, where I learned English.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) Muslim leaders should ask themselves what exactly their relationship is to a political movement that encourages young men to kill and maim on religious grounds.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes) I believe that the dysfunctional Muslim family constitutes a real threat to the very fabric of western life. It is in the family that children are groomed to practise, promote and pass on the norms of their parents’ culture.  (Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes)
