As I listen to this ultra-couragious woman speak, I cannot but think how quickly I would vote for a woman for president of our country.

There is truth in not wanting to offend the “mamma bear”.

This woman, socialist as she may very well be, looks death in the eye every day and night.

Think about that for a whole minute. Just try. You can’t.

God, I wish more men in this small world of ours had her balls.

“Never appease evil.”

Once, the popular question was, “How many roads must a man walk down before you can call him a man?” Now, the question that runs through my mind almost constantly is, “How many apostates must speak out against Islam, before the world will recognize it for the anti-Democratic and racist political ideology it truly is?”

Who knows? The world is ever-changing. Where once England ruled the world largely due to its supremacy of the seas, Islam is making a push to rule the world via the actions of men we call terrorists but most Muslims would consider ‘jihadists’.

Kudos to Ayaan. Someone who knows her once wrote to me saying that she is playing a dangerous game and needs to watch out.

I say to that person and everyone else who reads this: She is not playing a game at all. She is speaking out against the greatest threat to world peace since the emergence of the Nazi party in pre-WWII Germany.

If we don’t all oppose this now, Ayaan’s words will be something to quote in the future because, as she said, our choice right now is not between war and peace, but between war with Ahmadinejad with a bomb or war with Ahmadinejad without a bomb.

She is right. We ARE already at war.

The question is, “How many apostates must speak out against Islam, before the world will recognize it for the anti-Democratic and racist political ideology it truly is?”

WOW, She is quite a woman. You can hear the past fear and terror in her words and her voice. It is through that fear and courage that she now comes to us speaking the truth.
Imagine that, the horrible truth about horrible people in uncomfortable places. Spoken by a woman who hated and then hid from the truth. Now she persists with this truth so that we might not have to live that bone-chilling existence full of fear. She brings us a gift of kindness in her truth, what will we now do with this?

We do have choices, today. And I believe she laid one situation out fairly, honestly and accurately.
Will OUR leaders have the courage to do what is necessary?
I pray they will….I pray they do. Maybe through OUR persistence? We must, many of us, help our nation.
We are at war.

She’s got the one thing that’s sorely lacking in the world today: clarity.

To our great fortune, we’ve got Michelle every day.

But if you guys could sign Ayaan….

Ever thought about it? It might be worth asking. And the world needs to hear her…

With Ayaan there is hope for a world without radical islam. We may not live long enough to see it, but maybe she’ll start something that our grandkids will be around to see.

Imagine, a world where muslims DON’T rape their own daughters and then murder them to bring “honor” back to their families!

lmagine a world where islam ISN’T at war with Jews, Christians, Bhuddists, Hindus etc etc.

Lord bless and protect this wonderful woman!

I’m a D&D geek. I joined with my current playing group on September 15, 2001. I felt awkward trying to have fun, but I refused to stop having fun. One of the players is Muslim. I am Jewish. There was no issue. We just played. We became friends. Our interests just focused on the game. We never discussed politics.

Currently his wife is in Ramallah visting her family. She is Palestinian. Only for one brief moment did the Middle East finally crept into our conversations. We shook hands in friendship. All he said about it was, “Man, why don’t they just get along already!” It was back to gaming, and we spoke no further of it.

People like Ayaan and her message should be up front and center. Someone needs to give her a microphone, a radio and tv show and broadcast her views to the world. No self-thinking muslim should oppose that because she is carving the road of freedom for them and liberating them from the death-grip of the mullahs. Fox News? How about it?

I appreciate the bravery of Ayaan Hirsi Ali; her message of denouncing the inhumane practices of Islam is one that should be heard by all. If by her speaking out more women are freed from the Islamic terrors of honor killings, forced marriages, raped women being charged with sex crimes while the rapists go free-that would be wonderful.
But remember that she is not speaking out against Islam itself. Just the evil practices which destroy women’s lives.
Don’t try to canonize her, and don’t make assumptions that if she is against This, she must be for That, whatever That is.
May she continue to speak out, may hearts and minds be changed, may the world fully realize that Shariah Law is inhumane, a danger to women and a shield for rapists.
