Giving an Islamophobe more attention then they deserve is perhaps not ideal, but sometimes there is nothing like exposing a liar, cheat and above all a hater of Islam and Muhammad (p). Hirsi Ali, whose real name is Hirshi Magan, fits this bill perfectly.
Ayan Hirsi Ali, a Dutch MP (oh no, not(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jyllands-Posten_Muhammad_cartoons_controversy) the(http://www.jcpa.org/jl/vp458.htm) Dutch(http://www.indymedia.nl/en/2004/11/22932.shtml)) claimed she was on the run from Somalia, after being forced into a marriage where she was routinely abused. She wrote a short documentary denouncing Islam's treatment of women which also featured naked women with verses from the Koran painted on their bodies. She also claimed Muhammad (p) was the same as Saddam Hussein (I wonder how much Saddam paid her for that). However a recent documentary(http://news.independent.co.uk/europe/article484099.ece) in the Netherlands exposed her for what she really is.
"A Dutch television documentary, aired last week, featured interviews with Ms Hirsi Ali's family in which her claims of an arranged marriage were denied. The programme also alleged that, contrary to her claims of having fled a war zone in Somalia, the MP had lived in comfortable upper middle-class circumstances safely in Kenya for at least 12 years before she sought refugee status in the Netherlands in 1992. Her family home - which is large and comfortable by Kenyan standards - was shown in the programme."
This is a huge fall from grace for the prominent Dutch MP, after having won numerous awards for "bravery" and "free speech", including a mention in TIMES magazine(http://www.time.com/time/2005/time100/leaders/) as one of the most influential thinkers of 2005. Although there are few awards for lying and deceit, her name must surely be on the shortlist.
"When interviewed by the highly-respected Zembla TV programme, Ms Hirsi Ali's family members denied she had been forced into marriage against her will to her former husband, a Somalian man who now lives in Canada, or that she had not been present at the wedding ceremony, as she had previously claimed. The couple are said to have parted amicably and her family denied that she had fled a marriage she did not want.
Ms Hirsi Ali, whose real name is Hirsi Magan, pretended she had come to the Netherlands from Somalia, rather than via Kenya and Germany. Refugees are usually required to apply for asylum in the first safe country they reach after fleeing."
We are sure there is a lesson for us Muslims in all of this - nobody likes a traitor! But for now we're just pleased to announce that another Islamophobe bites the dust.
