Recent Speech by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

From this source, dated February 20, 2008:
When the audience took the floor after human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s speech at the University of North Texas on Wednesday night, their questions threw the gulf of mystery between Islamic culture and Western values into sharp relief.

Are you another one of those people who is upset at Hirsi Ali for asking for money?

She is, in my opinion, doing the right thing by asking for money, because in doing so, she is putting the responsibility for her life onto the shoulders of those who go around saying they stand for Freedom of Conscience. She knows that she is probably going to die. By doing what she is doing, she is making it so that no one can deny that they understood during her lifetime.

Do you get it?

I actually don't give a damn about how she gets her money. I just like to use blunt words for clarity. What I am upset about is the absence of any kind of village of rabid anti-jihadists that can shelter her through the simple measures of people watching each other's backs and not letting strangers into their territory.

Yep, that's something to be pissed off about.
